Tea and Leaf Tuesday

I'm certainly in need of my tea indulgence today...

...and it's nice to have it include lovely memories of my little French sojourn way back in March.

I found a delightful tea/coffee retailer in Chartres...

...who had a small range of locally-themed teas!

Today, I'm partaking of "Baiser de Chartres"....

...and considering the leaf is green and there are not a whole lot of obvious flowery or fruity additions....

...the flavour is simply sublime.

Full and flowery....

...and looking good in this tiny Japanese tea cup that I found in a shop called "KIMONOYA" in the Rue du Pont Louis-Philippe (Paris).




On the leaf is a little bamboo plate with a spoonful of a beadmix that I call "Byzantium".




It's for the "Magic Lantern" that I'm making for that Busy Bees workshop...





...more in a couple of days when I've finished it :-)

The tea sounds scrummy and the beads are delicious!
