A quick late Tea Time Tuesday, just before the clock ticks over to Wednesday, of some tea and cake photographed last Monday, sigh.
This time it’s a heady perfumed White with Rose from Madame Flavour. Made with Peony White leaf tea [Pai Mu Tan once again] it is my go-to when I want something delicate and pretty. An Australian company based in Victoria, I not only love the teas but the whimsical illustrated packaging makes me happy.
The tea cup is my new fave and says only ‘Made in China’ on the base, it looks like a flower and I feel fancy when I drink from it.
I picked it up for a decidedly un-fancy $1 at the Salvos store in Orange a few months back. You are familiar with my #oppshopobsession aren’t you?
Yes, my teapot is a measuring cup. Call me hipster, ingenious, lazy or all of the above, it matters none as works perfectly when I’m not drinking from a pint glass.
The cake I made for my birthday a little over a week ago, and had to freeze half of it recently to prevent myself from eating the whole thing.
It was based on the best chocolate cake ever then flipped with whole spelt, no dairy and no refined sugar, I won’t even get started on what I did for the icing but this fudge may have had something to do with it… Both the cake and the icing need a bit more refinement before I can share them but ohh boy was it good. RJ didn’t even ask if it was healthy, a very good sign.
Ok, I’m off to bed but tell me, what’s in your cup right now?
