After a very long week of high maintenance personalities, a sick kitty, a broken blog… I treated myself to a little tea luxury.
Forte is my absolute favorite tea. It’s super high quality and the flavor can’t be beat. Then there’s the artful appeal, with the silken pyramid infuser. It just makes you smile and when you smell it in your cup and taste it…. well all your worries just float away with each steaming sip.
While in Reedsport, where our vet is located, I picked up a few of my fave Earl Greys, and tried Flora. Oh my word, is it soooo delicious! It’s Hibiscus… it brews red… it’s sweet and delicious!
I also picked up the cafe cup because I don’t like it when my infuser bobs around… you really need the special lid so that it sits in your water nicely and the flavor can come out and mingle in the water. The cup was such a treat to open from the box. It’s a wooden box, so you know I’ll be altering that later, and then inside it was wrapped up in my favorite shade of green tissue paper. Bliss!
I would love to get the ‘dessert’ cups too. They are smaller in size, meant for brewing the teas stronger, and have nifty bamboo covers that act as the lid to hold the tea infuser in place while brewing, then you slip the cup in it to ask as cool sleeve for drinking it. They have a whole line of teas that are perfect dessert teas. Oh the addiction continues!
