Taking Tea on a Tuesday...Aladin...magic and memories...

Today's tea is called "Aladin" and comes from that lovely little tea specialist in Foix.





It really is pungent.....citrus and rose...with a hint of pepper :-)


I've included the words "magic and memories" in the post title, because Aladin is a story of magic, and also because of that little cup....





...my Bloke's Sooty cup, from when he was a LOT littler than he is now :-o

Sooty is a reminder of a pleasant childhood.....comfortable and warming....


..a bit like the tea that's in the cup today...




I hope you all have happy memories today too...

What a darling cup! A true treasure. The Aladin tea sounds interesting - did you like it?

ha.........my partner has a thing about tea.
Well I'm not sure it's the tea or the usual old fashioned looking tea tins that the tea is displayed in.
Whereever we go,we always seem to come home with more tea!
I wouldn't mind but he's a coffee drinker :)

I used to look forward to my Sooty comic every week so Chap's cup brings back happy memories. This tea sounds delicious with a touch of pepper. It's been great catching up on posts!
