Honestly, I wasn’t excited about getting reception back after 2 days away. It was a joy to leave my phone at on the bedside table and walk along the beach, not check every email or every tweet, so when I arrived back in range and my 78 emails came through (a combination of blog and roller derby), I took a deep breathe and started sifting through them.
Then the Facebook notifications started (it had just been my birthday), and then the tweets.
There was one tweet that was a particular joy to receive, one from Kate at Foxs Lane, saying that I had won one of the tea packages that she was giving away from She-Tea.
The tea came beautifully packaged in the post box and to open and find these delightfully designed canisters. She-Tea is Daylesford’s very own boutique tea company, I love that it’s a local company, that’s unlike anything else on the market. So I sat down and poured myself a cup of Sweet Tooth. The black tea, vanilla and caramel pieces blend is perfect for that 3pm craving. I put 3 teaspoons of the tea into this pot and half filled it with boiling water. Let it brew while I took some photos and then poured myself a cup. I thought I would want to add honey to the tea, as I do this with a lot of herbal teas, but a dash of local milk was all the sweetening this tea needed, and as they claimed, it was the perfect way to combat the craving. The lovely designs, the thoughtful blends and it all being from some local girls, really does put the joy in taking a moment for a cup of tea. I can’t wait to try the other 2 flavours!
Do you take the time for an afternoon cuppa?
