I think I mentioned this before but one of the experiences I love the most about springtime besides all of the colorful blooms, is the arrival of the first flush Darjeelings. This morning I am sipping a cup of Arya estate Aroma Darjeeling. The Arya tea garden is located in the Darjeeling district in northeast India. I wrote a little about its history in a former post. To me, its name even conjures up images of a fairytale kingdom high in the misty mountains.
I was so excited to find this intact large leaf in my cup. The color and quality of the leaf is outstanding. The amber colored liquor smells like delicate fruit and flowers and its taste fills my mouth with a slight hint of sweet bananas and other tropical fruits. A heavenly treat to start out the long holiday weekend.
Today I am attending my polymer clay guild meeting where I will try and get some work done on my March journal page. “Try” is the key word here as I will probably be visiting and sharing with my fellow guild members for the first few hours! A veritable gab fest, if you know what I mean. I’ll post a photo soon of the progress I make today on my page.
Oh how I wish we had enough interested members here in the area to meet & share polymer.
I don’t comment often but I just wanted to tell you I so love your saturday morning teas. Have a blast at your guild meeting. My guild is still in it’s infancy, but we are growing by word of mouth.
I hope that some day you will find kindred polymer spirits and be able to start your own group. Sending good thoughts out that your wish will come true!
Every time I read your blog, I get a craving for a cup of tea! This time I actually set down the laptop, abandoned my comfy spot on the couch, and indulged myself. Nothing fancy – just a bag of Tazo Zen, which is a green tea with spearmint and lemon, if I remember correctly – but it hits the spot nonetheless. And it’s keeping my hands out of the dreaded snack bowl, which is a nice side effect 😉
Mmmmm Lisa, that tea sounds very good! Yes, tea can be a wonderful deterrent to indulging in snacks.
Thanks Kathi! I hope you have fun with your guild, too!
