Tea Time

I'm beginning to get addicted to tea. Not a bad thing at all.
The aromas and bold flavors have a calming effect on me.
Moroccan Mint is on my top 5.

This lovely setting above is from the Chinese Garden downtown.

The treats of kumquats, chestnuts, candied lotus seeds and
melon represent five blessings of the New Year:
wealth, longevity, virtue and happiness.
I drink to that;)


  1. oh I am so glad you made it to the gardens for the free days! isn't the tea house fun :)

  2. Thanks for the info Leah:) I headed there this weekend and we just missed the crazy! The line was a block long when we left!
