Today me and some friends went to a place called Tea Buzz Global Tea bar, I have been here before....I wrote about it last month. Here we are all five of us, not in the picture is Joanna the tea master expert herself. Thank You Joanna for today's amazing experience!
We did a Tea Tasting Flight....that means you get to taste several teas. Since I like black tea I did a black tea Flight. My teas were a Darjeeling, a Malty Assam and a Wild Black.
But we also had other teas.....so everybody's palate could be satisfied.
The lea leaves in this tea have been inside a lotus flower!
I wore my White Rabbit (Alice in Wonderland) necklace for today's tea ceremony.
This is the Darjeeling, this tea comes from India. Note the beautiful cup.
This tea came with little snifters that we inhaled the tea aroma from before tasting the tea.
The Malty Assam.
The Wild Black.....this tea comes from the Old Growth Tea Forest in Vietnam. Note the cup again.
If you would like a cup of delicious tea or perhaps sit for longer and enjoy a Tea Tasting Flight.....you can find some more information here. And you can also stop in and purchase tea to take home with you.

Part of the outside, also pretty.
What a LOVELY afternoon I had!
Now I am thinking I will read a bit about the history of tea to brush up and add to my knowledge on this fascinating topic.
But before I go.....some quotes about tea!
Eisai, How to Stay Healthy by Drinking Tea - "Tea is the ultimate mental and medical remedy and has the ability to make one's life more full and complete."
Kazukō Okakura, The Book of Tea - "Tea ... is a religion of the art of life.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Notes from Underground - "I say let the world go to hell, but I should always have my tea.”
