My all time favourite tea and tea set~
After I tried the available flavours, I always came back to the Mad Tea Party Blend.
The tea is of medium strength, and is a black tea with traces of ginger, peach and apricot. So it's a light touch of sweetness and a nice kick of spicy that's always unexpected to me but a blends so nicely together and makes it taste so unique to me.
Roughly, it's sugar, spice and everything nice~
Also, the tin it comes is so very whimsical that I enjoy displaying it on my counter for my friends and guests to pick up and read, and I always offer to pour them a cup~
Boy oh boy, is the cookie heavy~ I couldn't finish it so I saved the other half for the next day.
But the details on the saucer and cup are very darling with bread and butterflies and rocking hose flies from the cartoon. Same with embellishments inside the rim of the cup.
Though be forewarned that the black metal isn't stainless steal and over the years has developed some rust from repeated washings and pourings.
But it's still a cute item that I use frequently~
