I love France and the French culture (I took three years of French in high school and am continuing to study the language in college,) and Ladurée was a place I made sure to visit when I was in Paris several years ago. My brother spent some time abroad earlier this year, and brought me back this beautiful tea from the famed pastry shop. First of all, the packaging is sublime. Secondly, the tea itself is delicious! It is a combination of black tea and red fruits giving it just the right amount of sweetness.
I drink a lot of plain black teas, and English Breakfast is my favorite. I love drinking it with milk or sugar depending on the day. The tin shown here is one I bought on my previously mentioned Europe trip, but I also love the Twining’s English Breakfast.
When I am under a lot of stress, I love mint tea. It is soothing, refreshing, and relaxing. The one I’m drinking now came from the lovely tea shop Tevanna, which has a wonderful selection of loose leaf tea blends!
This tea is one of my favorite iced teas to drink. As the name would suggest, it is fruity, tangy, and refreshing. I love it during the hot summer months.
Another cool thing about Tevanna is that you have the ability to combine different teas into custom tea blends. This blend is one I love. It is fruity and tangy, but good hot or iced. I do like to sweeten this one up just a bit with some honey!
Are you a tea drinker? What are some of your favorite teas?
