It's actually a leaf that is often mixed with herbs. :)

The cat pic is just an avatar that I found. He is a cutie.

I'm obviously not very good at giving hints, but this hint should do it:

Earl Grey + Posies

If you've never seen these things, you're going to love them. Some of them are gorgeous. I saw them for the first time several months ago on tv, maybe the Travel Channel.

phinz is right! I was just looking for tea flowers or blooming tea. I had never heard them called tea posies. Here's a video.
