Taking Tea on a Tuesday...The des Riads



This time I decided on a black tea...



...described thus...

Une porte anonyme poussée au fond d’une impasse au cœur de la Médina et voici un patio accueillant, le murmure
Nou
d’une fontaine et la fraicheur des orangers. C’est la magie des riads marocains que l’on retrouve avec ce subtil assemblage
de Yunnan vert et d’arômes de cannelle,de cardamome,de citron doux et de pamplemousse. Le piment, les
écorces d’orange et les fleurs de pivoine complètent l’évocation de ces jardins secrets. La saveur d’un paradis perdu...


...on the "menu" of Les Terny Thes!

This is a delightful tea....a little astringent....with a beautiful "nose". (being posh now! :-)




Les Terny Thes is owned by dear friends Christine and Claude Terny. You can find them at 14-16, Rue de la Poissonnerie, Dinan.22100.


(I don't have time to do another post before departing for the Festival of Quilts. I'd just like to say to anyone who's going to be there...that I'd LOVE to meet you if you can get around to me on Stand E52. I'll post on the event next week :-)

x Chris
