Premier One - Made in China
It is very sturdy -- almost heavy, but lovely.
We felt very "adult"!
Three different teas were served and I made sure I tried them all.
I started with the Organic Lady Earl Grey,
the most famous of black teas infused with white Tibetan lavender.
Then the Organic Darjeeling,
the champagne of black teas from India.
Last was the Organic Rose Jubilee,
South African tea infused with rose and caffeine free.
My favorite was the Organic Lady Earl Grey.
It was light and lovely.
You could taste the lavender on the tip of your tongue at first sip.
All the teas were from the Path of Tea.
The afternoon was complete with a glass (or two) of champagne.
Wishing YOU well and much joy!
I'm joining the following tea parties.
