Being one who likes to travel, it makes me very excited to have the chance to travel from my tea cup -- that is to exchange, in notes and in tea, with people in other countries. The CommuniTEA, which I talk about often, is a global set -- and it will be my true honor should I ever meet them face to face....as tea has a way of getting people to meet, to sit and to talk, even if only ever for one momentous afternoon.
If you ever get the opportunity to go to France, I will go and visit Miss Maple's Tea Room. I get the feeling that the whimsical, modern edge falls in line with my own tea style. They offer 70 teas, so there is bound to be something that I like...
Indeed, I got to sample their "Montagne Verte" blend, which in my basic French 101 means Green Mountain. This was as captivating a tea as ever was. The aroma, the taste....of green tea and strawberries! I can't tell you what all was in it (as it was not on the label), but I loved their tea!
I am not sure how to get more of their tea, as there is only the myspace link that I have, but no website for Miss Maples Tea Room that I can find so as to buy more...I have told my friend heading back to France to stop by and visit the tea room...here's hoping she does (and brings me back a fabulous blend of tea!)
