we have completed our seventh visit (can’t believe there are that many places to get tea in this area!) and still on trek. i thought the other day how i hope this tour never ends because i have so much fun. i am sure, however, we will have to start reviewing something else, one can’t talk of tea forever.
check out some of our latest stops below if you haven’t read them already!
this stop took a little detour into the food route (which i was especially thankful for). tara and ihad tea, of course, but also enjoyed brunch with a friend at the duck and bunny. i love getting tea but the idea of having food with it is something to really look forward to, so i will talk about that first.
after much scrutiny i got the The T.S. Geller, which as you can see from their menu wasn’t the most adventurous decision. i ended up not being super enthused and wish i had stopped talking to look at the menu for a few minutes. but girls will be girls so i made a rash decision and paid the price later. don’t get me wrong, i’m sure so people would have enjoyed this, but they put greens in the crepe and they got all mushy from the heat so i was left to pluck them out. better luck next time. tara had something delicious which you have to read about.
on to the tea. i had their honeybush, an african rooibos blend, that was served in a little pot. it was very soothing and i enjoyed putting some milk and a smidge of honey to liven things up. i would give it an 8, as there wasn’t a ton of flavor but rooibos normally doesn’t have that much unless steeped for eternity.
rooibos is one of my new favorites. it acts like a black without the caffeine. what could be better? i have my mom to blame (or thank!) for the necessity of milk in my tea. she used to have tea parties with me when i was little and would fill the pot up with tons of milk so i wouldn’t drink the caffeine! she was smart, as i would probably have been jumping off the walls even more if i had some.
