Within three blocks of where I live, there are four bakeries and cafes where I can pick up almond croissants. Thankfully, I don’t succumb very often. Yesterday, I did. The ones I picked up were a bit dry but delicious. I am having them now with this tea.

I could probably drink this tea every day. It has a nice heft, a malty sweetness and depth. It is good hot, lukewarm, and left over from the day before. :)

I’m also looking for a Keemun that is slightly smoky. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

One day, I am going to pick up an almond croissant from each of these places and do a taste-off to find my favourite. As is, I don’t eat croissants often enough to remember that variations which my neighbourhood has on offer.


My town needs more bakeries. Have an almond croissant for both of us, please :)


Too many sources of almond croissants is a good problem to have. :)

Totally agree, Leafhopper. It’s quite amazing—even when one Hungarian then another French bakery closes, another one or two crop up. Clearly, this is an area that likes its butter and flaky pastry.

Derk, you don’t need to ask me twice :)

And you probably have an assortment of killer taco and burrito options in your ‘hood.

Western brewing

I have received a huge box just before my getaway. Lovely White Antlers decided to send me some teas. Ordered from What-cha, delivered here. And this tea is sample from Alistair himself. THANK YOU both!

3 minutes steeping brews wonderful golden colour tea. The aroma is indeed very sweet as it is in the description, (dry) tea was very similar to picture. Long wire-like leaves, with hints of golden colour.

Brewed… aroma was already described, as well the colour. The taste is bit drying, but sweet. Maybe sweet potatoes a bit? Hints of malt for sure. Maybe it is not one of the most complex black teas, but certainly very nice and the price is very nice as well.

For now 90/100. But it may go up or down as I am, naturally, tired. And maybe another preparation method will make the tea better. How to spend remaining 3 grams? Should I brew it gong-fu?

Flavors: Drying, Malt, Sweet, Sweet Potatoes

The What Cha tea box should help you get through your first few weeks of school, Martin. Enjoy! : )

Martin Bednář

I think it will help me go through whole semester :D

White Antlers

That’s even better! YAY!


Wowzer! That sounds wonderful, Martin! I bet it was delicious. Keemun are da best!


Isn’t she lovely? Isn’t she wonderful? I have a ton of tea from White Antlers to forward soon. It’s going to come in several shipments. I don’t want you to pay customs and I know you had to once before with Farmerleaf. Is there a parcel size or weight limit?

Martin Bednář

Hehe ashmanra. Everybody got tastes different. I prefer bit more Ceylons or sometimes Darjeelings. But now, maybe I will fell in love with Keemun?

derk: Indeed she is! Well, the value of one shipment should be less than 22 EUR. That’s 26 USD. The parcel size or weight doesn’t matter, but write in the custom declaration value less or equal that 22 EUR. Note it is gift as well, because then there is no VAT to pay by myself. Declare clearly the amount of black tea and amount of green tea. If there are other teas, I don’t know how to declare it :/. They aren’t listed in the list. Maybe declare it as herbs if they are fruit/herbal? That should do no tax as well, if they decide that value is actually higher than written 22 EUR.

I don’t know how much of tea do you “have to” forward to me, but that’s it :) It isn’t easy at all, I had to read the website several times and I still think I don’t understand it properly. But the value should do the trick.
