Return (Tea +2)

Back from Paris, and a bit a of (lot of a) wreck.

Propper report coming later. In the mean time, for relevance, know this. The teashop “Mariage Frères” is amazing and if you like tea at all and are ever in Paris (or Tokyo as they seem to have branches there too) you must go. I was restrained and only brought back two teas. First, some ‘Sakura 2000’ which is a cherry blossom tea that they actually got out when I was asking for Cerise (cherry) tea but smelled so good I didn’t turn it away. (It may be a little like that wonderful Cherry Rose Sencha C and I found in Vasncouver that I have been searching in vain to find again. Cherry and Rose go WELL together in tea, and it’s one of Ade’s favorite flavoured teas. If anyone finds Cherry Rose Sencha (green tea) that is willing to post me some, it would make me GLEE.)

The other tea I got was picked on the name alone, but also smelled lovely. It is called ‘The Tea of Legends’, which ammused me hugely so I picked it up. I’m drinking a cup of it now and it is lovely. Very fresh tasting, with a citrusy flavour as well as a taste I’m not sure how to describe other than ‘green’. But not grass kinda green. Nice green. This stuff is good. Mmm, legends.

In fact, I’m nearly done this cup so I’m going to make some more, and get on with my essay. It is making the world that little bit more ‘right’ :)

(PS, on a less posh front, Tetley’s ‘Jolly Ginger Mint’ tea/infusion (it’s not got any black or green tea in it) is really lovely and I was drinking either that or the Fortnum and Mason’s tea my mum was given all christmas. Ginger and Mint go together better than expected and the drink is warming but really refreshing. And has lemongrass in which tends to make for a happy KT.)

You know, I’m very tempted to start doing tea/caffiene reviews in here. I think I might have to do that.

Look after each other, guys. Time for me to get to work.
