Tea bombs have an alluring look to them and making it at home can seem like a complicated task, but in reality, these bombs can be made with a few ingredients and in no time.

Melt the isomalt until it turns clear and bubbly. To this, add the food color of your choice.

Melt down the edges on a hot pan and stick them together. Your tea bombs are ready!

Serving this delicious bomb is similar to serving your hot cocoa bomb. Simply place the tea bomb in a mug and pour boiling water over it. The tea bomb will now begin to melt and the tea bag and other additions like edible glitter or flowers will pop out. Let the tea steep for some time and infuse the flavors before drinking it.
Modifications: You can bring these variations to the basic recipe
While isomalt is a natural sweetener, for extra sweetness, add extra sugar. Adding food color to the isomalt will give it a colorful appearance. Make tea bombs with herbal teas like chamomile or green tea to have fun with flavors. Don't forget to experiment with edible confetti to add to its shine and luster. You can also add edible flowers for an extra kick.
