ALL THE TEA IN PARIS....
Betjeman & Barton célèbre Pâques en
partant au Japon...
C’est jour de fête au Japon. Les
cerisiers sont en fleurs ; précieux symbole du renouveau dans le
pays du soleil levant. Le thé Easter Tea dans son biberon est l’allié des
réjouissances. Dans ce thé de Chine et de Ceylan, les arômes de chocolat,
de vanille et l’essence d’orange font la ronde et s’entremêlent avec les
pétales de roses qui côtoient les fleurs de bleuets. Le printemps est de
retour ; vive la nature qui s’éveille, vive les beaux jours, vive
les odeurs de fleurs, vive le thé Easter Tea de la maison Betjeman
Biberon : 12,80 € - 100g de Easter Tea : 5,25
I DON'T FULLY UNDERSTAND WHAT THIS SAYS BUT I KNOW INSTINCTIVELY THAT I WILL SIMPLY ADORE THIS TEA. BETJEMAN & BARTON MAKE MY FAVORITE TEA EVER CALLED EDEN ROSE....IT'S SIMPLY EXQUISITE COMPLETE WITH ROSE PETALS, VANILLA, AND OTHER DIVINE INGREDIENTS. MY FRIEND CARROLL AND I USED TO DRINK IT FOR HOURS out of a stunning sterling silver tea pot....
The Easter Tea mentioned above sounds wonderful too. I can see they have the rose petals and I think they are saying some chocolate and flowers too. The packaging alone is perfection. So my dear readers, if you happen to be in Paris please pick me up some of this sublime holiday tea. And if you can't find it just go over to the other first class and spectacular tea shop...Kusmi Tea in the heart of Paris...
Kusmi Tea is my new favorite....They have a sublime green tea steeped and steamed in Rose Petals. They also have a Violet TEa (below right) that my Sister just sent me a sample of and I am holding on to it like a treasure and saving to enjoy in just the right moment.
This all leads me back to my last post about Uncle D. That man loved me so much one night he said to Aunty when they were talking about me... "I will carry her to China!" I guess from that young moment I fell in love with tea. Because i grew up with adults around me saying All the Tea in China! And I knew Uncle D loved his tea! When I am reunited with my beloved Uncle in heaven we will spend eternity delighting in the finest teas ever in those fine, bone-thin delicate tea cups that he simply had to have his HOT tea in.
But, for now, I am enjoying all the Tea in Paris....from my Aunty mug.
Happy Tea Time.... Happy Spring Time, Happy Uncle D time....
