I am always on the search for new fun things that are tea related. But then you probably already knew that about me, right? Give me anything tea related and I am happy as can be.
Recently a new fad has emerged which features Cocoa Bombs — little balls of chocolatey goodness that explode into a wonderful cup of hot chocolate when hot milk is added to the cup. While I have not tried them I have been intrigued. And then I discovered TEA BOMBS!
There are a lot of vendors on Etsy but I selected SugarBombsByCara to do my test run of the fabulous tea bomb. We had a little difficulty with shipping breakage but Cara was fabulous to work with and delivered replacements immediately. Trust me – these little gems are fragile and delicate and sometimes the USPS tosses packages around a little bit roughly.
I have enjoyed a couple of these little beauties already and they are a truly wonderful little pick me up. They are pretty sweet so I would not make a habit of having them as a regular thing but I thoroughly enjoyed the two I have enjoyed.
Easy to make – just place one little ball into a cup of boiling water and let the magic unfold. The outside sugary shell dissolves and the tea and flavors are released into the hot water to steep. I opted to strain the the finished tea for a tea leaf free beverage.
It’s fun to try new products and discover new things. I think these would be a wonderful gift for a tea lover out there. I think Cara may have her Etsy shop on vacation now but when she gets back up she is a great vendor to work with. Give her a look and see what she has to offer.
