Ready for a new edition of Tea at Three? ^-^
Jo Malone London just launched the Rare Teas Collection. It’s a set of six scents, each inspired by a select tea.
We celebrated with cold-brewed teas (six types to match each scent)…
…bowls and baskets of the sweetest strawberries and cherries and…
…Kristy’s madelines (classic and tonka bean-cocoa). Served with strawberry-rose compote.
I often forget how simple and wonderful cold-brew tea can be, especially during summer.
Filtered water, great tea (thanks, Sebastian)…hard to go wrong. I steeped these right before dinner. Eight hours later, I strained and bottled them before going to sleep. The colors! So soothing.
You can see the full collection of scents here.
Here’s the pairing breakdown of scents and cold-brew teas:
- Silver Needle with Silver Needle
- Darjeeling | 1st flush Darjeeling from Margaret’s Hope Estate
- Jade Leaf | Sencha
- Oolong | Dong Ding Oolong
- Midnight Black | 2nd flush Darjeeling from Namring Upper Estate
- Golden Needle | Pu’erh Leaf
My favorite from the collection? Darjeeling, for sure.
And this Lie SangBong jumpsuit felt just right for a weekend afternoon.
