Yes yes, I love tea and I'm going to talk about yet another amazing tea that I've tried.
Okay that tea you see there, my gosh, it's gorgeous.
My friend Mark went on a cultural immersion trip to France during the holidays and stayed there for 5 weeks. I took this opportunity to see if he could get some lovely tea leaves that Flo of Bliss in the Kitchen sent me during the 2nd Edition of Blogging By Mail.
Flo sent me plenty of delights from France including the unforgettable tea!
So anyways to cut the long story short, I copied down the address so Mark could perhaps check out the same shop she got it from.
When he went there, there was no tea shop! Oh well... maybe it was the wrong address or wrong place. Hmmm but he did go to Lyon where the shop was supposed to be.
Whatever it is, it's okay because he bought me some fruity tea instead. Yep, those black tea leaves came all the way from France in Mark's luggage. Haha... thanks loads Mark! I really dig the tea. It smells divine and the tea had no bitter aftertaste, which was atonishing.
Well most tea I drink almost always leave a bitter taste in my mouth but this was an exception. So yep, I'm drinking this tea slowly - can't bear to finish it all so soon...
Oh, the 5th edition of Blogging By Mail is currently taking place and I'll be sending my parcel really soon. I think it's too late to join already but do look out for the next edition.
Here's my thanks to the host this time round: Stephanie the Happy Sorceress of Dispensing Happiness. It's no mean feat and I salute her for organising it this time round. Of late there are 85 participants! Gosh that's like more than 5 times the original number of participants. This should go down in the Guiness World Book of Records for the largest mass food mailing event don't you think? :p
Allrighty, I'm off! Time to snooze! Gotta wake up in time for my morning lecture - ciao!
