Summer Bucket List #21 (Unofficial): Drink as Much Tea as Humanly Possible

This weekend in town one of the churches put on a proper tea party.  Low tea, to be exact.  It was fun!  The tea was delicious (Mum and I each had two cups), we were served proper little sandwiches and delicious deserts like Victorian layer cake, and a lot of people were dressed up in period clothes.

I'm just kicking myself for having not reviewed this infographic beforehand so I would know the proper etiquette for low tea.

I am forever nuts about tea.  I love smelling teas, I love trying new teas, I love drinking tea.  I love tea cups and tea pots.  I get excited in tea stores.  Any time I go to the city, I have to go to David's Tea, even if it's just to look.  Last trip, I got a tea called Forever Nuts, and it just might be my new favourite.  It has a really great nutty flavour and a creamy taste.  What got me though, was the colour.  I wish the picture did it justice.  This tea is the prettiest pink!  Think cute little girly cupcake pink.  The tea gets its colour from the beetroot that's in it.

Mum bought loose tea called Birthday Cake.  I had tried it before (for my birthday actually) and loved it.  While I wouldn't say it tastes like cake specifically, it tastes like baked goods in general and smells like caramel!  The last thing we needed was tea.  Mum and I both have our fair share of tea.  Exhibit A:

And since Tasha gave me even more tea for my birthday, I have all this too!

Lately I've been drinking my ginger tea from Nepal (not pictured).  I had kind of forgot I had it.  Glad I remembered.  It's delicious!  For clarification, no, I have not been to Nepal, though I think it'd be a cool place to go.  I got it at a Ten Thousand Villages craft sale.  In fact, I think I might go make myself a cup right now.

If you still don't understand why I love tea so much, perhaps this infographic will shed some light on it for you.
