I'm going green today.
This is my new Aynsley teacup.
I found it at the Guild Shop -- a thrift shop/granny's attic shop run by the Episcopal Church.
Two of my favorite things:
GREEN and ROSES!
Elegant, isn't it?!!
Definitely a little finger held out at attention when I use this cup!
I found the tea towel with its green background at Tuesday Morning.
It reminds me of some I've seen at Anthropologie.
More favorite things:
the color green, teapots, teacups and birds!
Finally, some green tea with ginger.
Pretty in the pot!
Two Leaves Tea Company announced a new line of affordable "luxury" teas
from the Paisley Tea Company.
They are traditional English Style paper teabags (no tag or string)
with tea that's organic and fair trade certified.
I was asked by Stephanie at Steph's Cup of Tea
if I would taste test three of the new teas and I said yes!
Today I'm sharing the Green Tea with Ginger.
I love Green Tea and I love ginger, but I wasn't impressed with this tea.
It had a wonderful gingery aroma and the color was pleasant,
but it was too medicinal tasting for me.
I cut the kettle off before the water boiled and waited for about a minute before I added it to the tea, letting the tea steep for about 3 minutes.
Perhaps my *taster* was just off.
I kept comparing it to a matcha tea with ginger I had the week before that knocked my socks off.
An unfair comparison, I'm sure.
Next week I'll share reviews of two teas that I loved!
Thanking our tea party hosts:
Wishing you WELL, much JOY and a wonderful cup of TEA!
