Tea on a Tuesday

You might have noticed that Carina is missing today? She’s on a three week vacation in southern France, relaxing with her hubby and two young daughters. I on the other hand, am working! Today we had the second shoot for the Cupcake Challenge and it was FUN! My girl Hviit was here, and she has some serious skills with the camera! We’ve been playing around all day, having a LOT of fun and taking some serious kick ass pictures, I’m crossing my fingers you like the new season of the Cupcake Challenge as much as I do!

I’m also taking the opportunity to debut a new series here, and you know it had to be about TEA! I have to have at least three cups of tea every day, and I do get a lot of questions on what kind of tea I drink etc etc. After the green tea course I took a couple of weeks ago, tea is not just tea anymore. It’s like wine, only BETTER! :) I probably have enough tea for a small village, and I’m going to share my faves with you:

Today I’m drinking Thé du Hammam from Le Palais des Thés. It’s inspired by a Turkish blend, with green tea and fruits. The fragrance is ridiculous, I seriously want to “eat” the scent (I KNOW that’s not possible, but it’s how it feels, smells SOOO good! Almost a little bit peachy)

 

You can see the dry tea in the background, and the wet tea in front. It’s very green and looks incredibly fresh. With Chinese green tea, the greener the leaves are, the higher the quality.



The taste is much milder than the smell, and really brings out the yummy flavor of the green tea leaves, with hints of red fruits and orange flower water. You know I like pretty things, and I’m drinking my tea from an Elinno “Morning Flirt” tea cup (which will soon be available online on Mandarin Chic).

 

I’m trying to catch up on my reading these days, I have a bunch of House Beautiful magazines I need to plow through. Crackers + tea are always a good mix, these are made with spelt flour instead of wheat. (which I don’t eat)

Have a fabulous evening, I’m jetting out later tonight for a fun night with the girls, watching TV, gossiping and yes, drinking MORE tea!!

xoxo

Mrs Conti - Thank you so much!! I actually bought that vase when I was 17, decorating my bedroom for the first time :)

Fonda - Oh, mexican vanilla with chili sounds INSANE!!

Heidi - ja, det var virkelig supert :) Og det er faktisk et fullt servise, men alt fra middagstallerkner til serveringsfat til tekanner og bittesmå tekopper :) klem!
