Leo, well done!!
See how we mix our herbal tea:) Jasmine flower ( also named as May flower ), Damaska Rose & Lavender!
What's our favourite green tea? The first plucked dragonwell at West Lake, Hangzhou.
Wow... this is an adorable tea shop in the middle of Chinatown. I'm used to someplace a little more simple with less finesse and flair, but I was quite happy to find such an upscale little boutique in the midst of it all. We walked in and found the decor to be quite relaxing and pleasing to the eyes. We saw little touches everywhere, which made us smile. They had little chinese zodiac characters here and there along with other cute decorative touches. They also had plenty of nice tea sets along the walls.
A couple of people happened to be in the back brewing up some iced tea (the owner was there I believe) and were more than happy to share their tips with us on the perfect iced tea at home. Also they brewed up some combinations to show us the versatility of mixing loose teas with rose buds. We learned that they try to educate each customer about the importance of using tea made without using chemicals in either the tea or the tea bags.
Also the gentleman told us that his father was a well-respected Chinese doctor and that his goal was to show how tea can offer something that tastes good and is healthy at the same time. To balance the traditional aspect of tea with it's modern aspect. I found him to be very fascinating and eager to tell us about his vision. He even offered for us to come back in a few hours to try the iced tea, but we were locked up in a church by that point.
I would highly recommend this shop to any locals who are interested in exploring the complexities of tea or tourists (like us) who love tea and are always looking to find the best quality product possible. The brand has some amazing visuals and marketing going for it, and I see a beautiful future ahead. My favorite part about this brand? They do everything they can to educate the consumer and are always striving to bring quality products to us (including house blends).
You are very sweet to share the pictures and your comments with us.
"I would like to thank you for introducing me to your impressive assortment of teas. Not only is the Tea packaging delightful; the taste is excellent too! The teas and the containers were the perfect “party favour” for my Baby Shower -Tea Party. My guests were really impressed, and your tea shop business card was given out.
My Cup of Tea is my new favourite Tea Shop; and I look forward to purchasing many more teas. Congratulations on your lovely and unique Tea Shop; best of luck on your future endeavours."
Throw it? Well...that's probably what you'll do. But let's see what else we can do?
1- Use as a cleanser, it helps to disinfect cuts
2- Soak for smelly feet after walking and maybe sweating for the whole day
3- Absorb odor from the refrigerator
4- Cleanse windows and mirror
5- Enhance flavor in boiled eggs
6- Makes very good compost for your garden
7- Use it to wash you hands after handling fish
So nothing is wasted! Can you imagine it?
