Anyway here are a few of my favorite teas : mostly green, sometimes white, almost never black and lots of infusions, but that's my personal taste ;-)
At home, after dinner I love to prepare some nice herb infusions in my golden cast iron japanese teapot : I usually mix verbena and linden flowers, tastes fresh, soothing and is good for digestion. I like it just as it is, but you can always add a lick of honey if you'd like.
Teas are a bit like handbags, you never have enough of them ….but luckily they are cheaper. I do try to withhold myself from bying tea every time I pass a nice teashop, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't… Last time I was in Liège, I stumbled accros a shop selling Marriage Frère tea, a famous Parisian brand with lovely boxes and teas. So I let myself purchase 2 kinds : a loose green tea La Na Thai from Thailand (instead of a genmaichi I originally wanted to buy) and some de-stress green tea with floral notes, ideal before bedtime. And as I was in Liège, I took the opportunity to check out Benoit Nihant's chocolates….which were recommended to me by a reader of my blog.
La Na Thai (slightly smoked green tea, too bad pictures don't smell)
I wanted to taste those little green ones by the "Comme chez Soi" chef
Instead I went for the classic box, and I must admit they taste pretty good and refined.
Back to tea, another brand I also like is Kusmi. My friend Lisa got me the cute afternoon assortment, 5 little boxes to vary the pleasures.
Oh and you know what, a nice tea or infusion doesn't need to be expensive, I also like the organic range from Delhaize supermarket.
Here are two nice teashops in Brussels : La Septième tasse and Comptoir Florian. I think it's time for some tea now; tonight I'll have a white tea with cherry blossoms in one of my favorite mugs.
