Ever since I started drinking tea, I’ve been fascinated by tea leaves. I like seeing how different tea leaves change once they steep. I even wrote a haiku about steeping tea leaves. (It was part of a series of haiku that I wrote about my favorite drinks. I also wrote about macchiato and red wine.)
These tea leaves in particular are a lot of fun. They start out as little balls and open as they steep. I’ve been trying to photograph them for awhile, but I never like the way the pictures turn out.
