Eden Prairie’s TeaSource offers Mother’s Day Gifts

Shake up the Mother’s Day gift routine.

Looking to give something a bit different this Mother’s Day? Consider a twist on traditional flowers by giving Mom a gift from TeaSource (561 Prairie Center Drive, Eden Prairie; 952.767.3648; teasource.com). The shop’s Red Flower Jasmine ($12.90 for 2 oz., $24.99 for 4 oz.) starts as a ball of green tea, which has been hand-tied with silk. Submerged in hot water, it blooms beautifully and deliciously. The Dark Rose Tea ($6.35 for 2 oz., $11.89 for 4 oz.) is pressed into heart-shaped pellets that can be re-steeped several times without losing flavor or antioxidant goodness. TeaSource also offers sample packs ($20), featuring 5 varieties of teas.
