Well not quite, but we’re close. And for those of us in Maryland, how good has it feeling outside?
It’s only appropriate, that this week, I discuss the Cherry Blossom Rose, from the stellar Capital Teas.
I have been a supporter of them since their first store opened in beautiful downtown Annapolis, in 2007, and now they have expanded into DC, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, with multiple stores, boutiques, and kiosks.
So about this tea. It’s plain and simple, comforting. I am glad that my first post regarding loose teas, is for this one. This tea, was part of the Organic Green Tea Sampler pack I purchased at the kiosk at the Towson Town Center. A big thank you to Michelle, who was working that day, for helping me pick out this package.
The scent, with Kyoto cherry and rose petals, is so joyous and a perfect way to celebrate the upcoming season and Cherry Blossom Festival.
The process with brewing tea in a loose format, was intimidating to me at first. It had been a while since I had prepped it this way. But there was no need to over think or over analyze. The creation process should be just as fun as the sipping it itself.
How beautiful does that look?
And I have posted a few pictures of the tea strainer that I used, and the very simple process, to catch the leaves, and bring about the flavor in my cup.
I enjoyed my tea, with some holiday themed peanut M&M’s! This can be drank hot or iced. So your food choices, most likely on the sweeter side, are plentiful and abundant.
There will be more to come on strainers and infusers, as they come on all shapes, sizes, and contraptions.
And of course, there will be more on Capital Teas. If you have a chance, visit one of them stores, especially the original one in Annapolis. It will charm your socks off. And in a great location in downtown Annapolis, it would be a tremendous addition to any visit.
Cheers to Spring.
