While your drink is being brewed over the fire, wrap the dried leaves of any plant by hand. Take these leaves and place them around the dried flower. Make a ball and put it to dry.
After 10 minutes, take the ball and place it in a transparent container. Then pour the tea made earlier over the sprout and wait a few minutes for the flower to sprout. You put a handcrafted flower bud on both the teapot and each cup served. The spectacle is beautiful and worth the test.
