Tea/Teapot Challenge DAY 10: Lemon Twist Tea and Polka Dot mini-teapot
Today has been a crazy busy day. I’m having furniture delivered, so I spent the morning getting rid of my old furniture, dusting, sweeping, washing down walls, and panicking over whether or not I measured correctly. I also had a few jewelry orders that needed to be shipped out.
Tea: Lemon Twist from Twinings
When I picked today’s tea, I wanted something without caffeine as I’ve been up since 5 and already downed way too many lattes. So I decided to go with Lemon Twist. It’s an herbal infusion or an tisane so there is actually no tea in this blend.
I like this tea. It’s a shame that the US branch of Twinings stopped selling it. I would liken this tea to a pink lemonade. I never use sugar in my tea, so it’s slightly tart, yet pleasing and fresh.
The Teapot: Nostalgia Collection from Hobby Lobby.
This is actually for espresso. It’s nice an small and comes with a demitasse cup and saucer. I think the smaller set is perfect for the tisanes and herbal infusions because you don’t want to drink large quantities at a time.
