It’s always fun to receive a package from a blog giveaway that you’ve won. This was a lovely tea theme giveaway from my friend Angela at Tea With Friends.
I couldn’t wait to try the chocolates from Nestle Japan. Aero was always one of my favorites and this matcha tea flavored version is delicious! The Kit Kat bar (pale green coating and filling) was also yummy.
Angela added some Numi Pu-erh teabags in four interesting flavors – ginger, cardamom, jasmine and coconut. I tried the ginger flavor first and was quite impressed. It brewed up dark and rich with a mildly earthy fragrance and a light ginger taste. I think the other flavors of this organic Pu-erh will also be enjoyable.
The YamaMotoYama Jasmine is also good. It tastes like the tea served in a lot of Oriental restaurants. It will be great to have on hand for serving with homemade stir-fry or a Chinese take-out meal. I’m looking forward to sampling the traditional Chinese Oolong tea also.
The two sizes of filter bags will come in handy on our upcoming trip for our daughters wedding. As for the pretty striped mug, I’m not sure yet whether I’ll use it for drinking tea or maybe to hold makeup brushes in the boudoir (it is a generous sized cup).
Thanks, Angela, for this great box of goodies.
