So work sent me to the beautiful city of York to attend a workshop, but as I have friends who live there, I got an open ticket and rolled it into a weekend. That city smells of chocolate, man. SMELLS OF CHOCOLATE. And I got to try the Yorkshire curd tart for the first time, which is really scrummy and I’m slightly cross that in 300something years of existence it hasn’t made it to bakeries further south.
And to make matters awesomer, my hostess was, it turned out, a tea drinker! Yes! punches the air I found a lovely little tea shop in the city centre and bought her a their earl grey and cherry blend, as I’d seen her enthuse about both. She loved it. I win.
I also bought myself their rhubarb sencha, because I need all the rhubarb tea, and my previous source for rhubarb green stopped producing it. I hope this will be excellent.
Anywho. This tea is one I had just before bed on Saturday night, and it’s actually really refreshing and nice! I’ve been looking for pineapple teas lately, and I also super like grapefruit teas, so this is a genuinely good balance of the two. I might need to pick up a box for the office when my current stash runs lower.
