What are tea bombs?
A tea bomb is a collection of tea bags and other fun tea add-ins like dried flowers, sprinkles, or edible glitter, all enclosed in a dissolvable sphere made of sugar.
Just add the ball to a mug, pour some boiling water over it, and watch the contents emerge right before your eyes – just like magic!
Tools for making tea bombs
- Silicone sphere mold: liquid isomalt gets poured into the mold, hardens, and creates the perfect sphere shape.
- Heat protective gloves: isomalt gets extremely hot when melted- avoid painful burns by wearing gloves!
- Small frying pan: for melting the edges of the domes so they can be fused together to make a closed sphere.

Hibiscus Mint Rose Tea Bombs
- ¼ cup isomalt per sphere (depending on sphere size)
- Hibiscus tea bags
- Moroccan Mint Tea bags
- Rose petals
- Rose buds
- Edible star sprinkles
- Boiling water
- Melt isomalt in a small pan over medium heat, stirring every now and then using a silicone spatula.
- Once melted, wearing heat protective gloves, pour melted isomalt into silicone molds; tilt and rotate molds, until isomalt is evenly coating the inside. Work quickly as the isomalt will start to harden once off the heat.
- Allow isomalt to harden for at least two hours, or overnight. Remove from molds.
- Fill the bombs: to half of the spheres, add one of each tea bag, 2-3 rose buds, rose petals, and sprinkles.
- Heat small frying pan over low heat and place one half of an empty sphere upside-down on the pan, melting the edges slightly. Place on top of a filled half, sealing the edges together.
- Place tea bomb into a mug. Pour boiling water over the tea bomb, stir, allow to steep for about 4 minutes. Enjoy!
