Recipe For The Perfect Tea Bombs
Yes, we know you are sold on this rad concept. Let us help you with the recipe.
1. First, heat white sugar in a saucepan and melt it. Then, you have to fill a round silicone mould using the molten sugar.
2. As soon as the sugar coats have cooled down, you can place tea bags in the middle or you can put loose tea leaves and other decorative elements such as glitter or edible flowers in them.
3. Carefully remove a few sugar halves and briefly heat the underside of the pan. Once the sugar has melted, press lightly onto the other halves of the sugar mould to join them.

There is also an option to fill up the Tea Bombs with other fancy ingredients that make it even more visually appealing.
