During my latest travel in the UK’s capital I did an unusual discovery which left me quite happy; walking around Covent Garden with my dearest friend Belle, I decided not to visit the famous Tea House in Neal Street again but to wondering around in search of something new.
I have to admit that I was prejudiced about Whittard of Chelsea, thinking it had become too much commercial; it certainly has commercial stuffs and stuffs for tourist, but at the first floor there’s something everyone would love: what about creating your own type of tea?
That’s right! A long white table with three basic tea-leaves pots to choose (white, green or black tea), a series of dried elements (fruits, flowers, other leaves, etc…) and several natural flavourings (vanilla, cinnamon, bergamot, strawberry, etc..).
“Blend your tea”! To me, “that was invitation enough” *! What did I choose?
Black tea with rose petals, mallow flowers and bergamot flavouring!
If you are wondering how to blend your own tea, you can do it comfortably at home through Whittard of Chelsea web site. (http://www.whittard.co.uk/)
As always Roberta wishes you a good brew! 😉
