Tea and biscuits and wine
Here is a master post of all of the Lizzie Bennet Diaries teas, available here on Adagio Teas. Enjoy!
Lizzie: [irish breakfast, hazelnut, blackberry] Firm and stubborn, but always with the best intentions. This tea may be off-putting at first, but has an underlying sweetness that will ultimately win you over with its heart.
Jane: [vanilla oolong, raspberry patch, cream, cinnamon] Freshly baked snickerdoodle—sorry, cinnamon sugar cookies, with a bit of raspberry zing. Gentle but firm, and always willing to see the good in people—because everyone deserves tea.
Darcy: [assam melody, cream, almond] This blend may have a strong first impression, but it sweetens with time. A little nutty, slightly creamy, it brews up to be a handsome cuppa. The more you drink, the more you’ll come to love it.
Fitz: [mocha nut mate, vanilla, cinnamon] Cozy and warm, with a bit of cinnamon spice. Like wearing a cozy sweater on a cool day, it’s a blend that is both familiar and exciting. An excellent tea for a good friend.
Charlotte: [earl grey moonlight, chestnut, caramel] A calm and comforting blend inspired by the logical and level headed Charlotte. Soothing earl grey with chestnut and hints of caramel will keep you wondering how you ever got along without it.
So…yeah. TEA. Enjoy it, and let me know what you think!
LBD SPECIFIC TEAS WHAT?!
This. Is. Beautiful.
And now I want tea. These all sound amazing, and kind of make me want to maybe blend my own tea… future career prospect?
Yesterday we went to the Gunners Barracks at Mosman, with a clear blue sky and a clear view across the harbour… Just beautiful. It’s a family tradition now, which we missed last year so we made up for it. Every time, Mum and I resolve that NEXT time we will get the High Tea, which looks amazing… Next time, next time…
Tasty Tea, February 2011
Owlett requested photos of this magnificent tea - “White Xmas” by T2. I admit I did not come by it entirely honestly. It was Josh’s, but in the process of moving out it got left behind, and Lucas was going to chuck it out (!!) so I rescued it and packed it in my backpack. Sorry Josh. I know I should have tried harder to get it back to you. But I was weak. The meringues, the apples, the rose buds… they called to me.
The Tea Parlour, January 2011
This place is awesome. Tiny little place in Redfern that serves high tea for $20 (and both times I’ve been we’ve split it between three people, and grabbed a couple of extra pots of tea). So very well worth a visit, and I’m not the only one who thinks so. Amelia, who runs the place, talks about plans for enticing new customers: tea leaf readings and palm reading sessions, book clubs… it looks like this is a space to watch. So if you’re in Sydney and looking for a sweet retreat, you won’t regret stopping by here!
