Tea time

Today, I found very unusual tea at a store. Actually I have had this one at my friend's house in Los Angels before. She knew many kinds of tea and served me this one.
When I saw it at the store, it reminded me of her so I got the one. And of course, I had the tea soon after I got home.

Inside the package, there are two heart shaped things. I put one of them into the tea cup and poured hot water in it. Then I waited for a while. It went as flower blooming little by little. I smelled jasmine also. According to the package description, they are jasmine flower and other one. (I don't know the English name.)

At the end a pretty crimson red flower appeared. Isn't it lovey pretty tea?

My dictionary says that the other one (千日紅) is "Globe Amaranth", though I didn't know what that was. I looked it up online and found that it is a tropical flower.

つまりこれは buds of Globe Amaranth ということですね。
It smelled good. Then how did it taste? Well... just so so to me. But it may be healthier.
