A Nice Cup of Tea in Singapore

TWG tea  Enticed by the romantic description, Holiday in Paris was my choice from an extensive list at my 70th birthday celebratory tea party at the Fairmont Hotel during a visit to my family in Singapore. Feeling nostalgic, I asked for some to be brought back to the UK when the family was repatriated.

Rare Yin Zhen and sweet vanilla have been blended as an ode to a leisurely promenade along the cobblestone streets of Paris. Nard and wildflowers decorate this cup with their crisp, floral savour and leave a heady, perfumed aftertaste. 

Holiday in Paris Tea by TWG - who could resist

 Now it's sitting on my kitchen counter. But because I know that it is quite expensive I can't bring myself to make a brew with it. I'm saving it for a special occasion and in the meantime sticking with my usual builders' brew in my favourite mug.
