Tea for Tuesday – 8/19/14

August 19, 2014

Laura’s Blog Entry

Today I am drinking a recent tea discovery. Mighty Leaf Chocolate Mint Truffle. MMMmmmm. This is an herbal, red tea blend with no caffeine. It has more of a mellow mint flavor. I think the hint of chocolate tempers the astringent quality of the mint, giving it a smooth flavor.

The tea cup is from my collection, purchased on one of the first trips Neil and I took as a married couple. We visited his family, hit some antique stores and toured Philadelphia, PA.  I was told by the lady in the shop that the finish on the cup is called copper luster. I love that the inside looks like mother of pearl.

Happy tea drinking!
