This is China grass. Daughter-in-law uses them for flavouring and also in making green herbal tea:-)

Beautiful shot, love those droplets.
I have never heard of China grass before, how does it taste?

@ursulakatariina: Well Ursula...it's something like he thyme or basil we use for flavouring, I think. I looked up in Wiki and found different shapes and quite a few recipes to make desserts!!!
