There’s never an occasion where drinking tea isn’t the right thing to do in my view. Even when it’s time to switch to something slightly more celebratory, like prosecco or a gin and slim, tea can still taken either side!
There’s a certain ceremony that goes with making tea in a pot, the old fashioned way I suppose as most of us are more used to a nice cup of builders made on the hop. There’s a cafe in Liverpool which makes tea drinking an art and serves up an eye-popping range of teas in these beautiful little glass teapots.
Every time I visit Leaf on Bold Street I order their Lavender Grey, I can’t get enough of it. If I were to try to describe its taste – and I’m no Jilly Goulden – I’d say it was like a regular Earl Grey with Parma Violets crumbled in. Sounds amazing, no?
I finally caved in a few months ago and treated myself to some Lavender Grey of my own, and asked for a teapot for a birthday present. When I tell you my birthday was in March it might give you an idea of how behind I am with my blog posts – so many ideas but no time to write them at the moment.
When you look at the loose leaf tea you can see the pieces of lavender in the mix. I know some of you might be wincing at this but if you like the smell of lavender it’s well worth seeking out. Oh, and if you’re in Liverpool then a visit to Leaf is an absolute must. It’s one of my favourite places for a chilled-out lunch in the city centre, they do amazing salads, cake and of course have their very own tea menu.
