At Home with The Qi - Ordinary Habit

When we first stumbled upon The Qi, we couldn’t help but wonder what these beautiful flowers would taste like when made into tea. We were delighted by their delicacy, and they quickly became something we made for ourselves in order to slow down and enjoy as an afternoon treat – a perfect companion to puzzle time. This fruity recipe using their tea is perfect now that the summer months are upon us.
