Heavenly Tea

When Zac + I were in Europe, on our honeymoon, we had some AMAZING tea.  I absolutely love it.

I fell in love with Laudurée the moment I laid eyes on the gorgeous mint green + gold tea salon quite a few years ago in Paris.  I was obsessed with their rose tea (and macaroons!!!).  This time I tried the violet tea + I was equally impressed, but the rose tea came home with me.  Now, I sorta wish I had gotten the violet tea.  I'm so indecisive haha :)  This time I got the tea bags instead of the loose tea too.

The other memorable tea I had was at The Orangery in London.  I got the signature orange tea: "An assortment of finger sandwiches, signature orange scented scone with Cornish clotted cream & strawberry jam. Finished with a delectable éclair and orange and passion fruit tart. Recommended tea - Rooibos breakfast (Orange tea).  It was really good.  I wasn't sure if I would like the orange tea, but I loved it.  So much that I couldn't stop thinking about it.





Once I got home, I looked up what kind of tea it was + searched for it online.  My mom + I went to Teavana one weekend + I asked them if they had an orange rooibos tea.  They didn't, but their solution was to mix their Wild Orange Blossom Herbal Tea with a Rooibos Tea.  I smelled all the delicious rooibos teas + chose the Tropica.  They are beautiful to look at, so I decided to store them in mason jars.  The tropica has bright blue pops of cornflower petals :)
