We have four Mimosa trees in the garden. They have been busy blooming for a while, and the fragrant flowers are a wonder to look at.
I couldn’t resist to harvest some of them and turn them into tea.Half a dozen in a cup turn instantly pale green when infused with boiling water.
The cup is still bright green, and the typical mimosa scent is overpowered by a herbal note that is not really unpleasant but distracting. What did turn out more spectacular was to use some of the flowers for pressing and scanning.
The colors became stronger after a day under heavy books.
