Well I just can’t help myself with the alliteration, can I?
I celebrated a birthday recently, and some dear friends got me some wonderful tea based gifts! It made me so happy!
I’ve yet to visit the Spice & Tea Exchange. It always seems to allude me. I’m at nearby locations, either before it opens or past dark, including Alexandria, Annapolis, and Williamsburg. It just hasn’t been meant to be.
The blog needed some spicing up (no pun intended) and some new tea implements, instruments, and gadgets will be making their way onto here!
And what about the tea that was used? The Blueberry Black Tea really made my day. It gave me chills. And I don’t meant the tea was cold. It literally gave me goose bumps. This stuff was magnificent. I’m getting a happy feeling just writing about it here. I got a great picture of the leaves up close, as can be seen pictured above! This was placed in the ball of the infuser before I closed it up to be steeped.
What you see pictured above and below is the joyful process of using my new favorite item! It definitely prevents a mess and dripping, as other infusers might do! I’m in love with this thing and I’m in love with the tea!
After steeping for just a few minutes, the color really shines and radiates!
It smells like a wonderful blueberry pie. While I had no pie to complement the tea. There were some delicious walnuts that I enjoyed with my cup!
I love going through the Spice & Tea Exchange’s website. There’s much to discover and learn. I see they’ve been around for just 10 years. But they really have some fun teas and related items available. I can’t wait to visit myself.
This is how we get the Summer going in style. I feel great about what’s to come.
Thanks so much.
