Mariage Frères, Esprit de Noel Tea
Yesterday, right smack in the middle of playing with robots, I heard the doorbell ring.
It was a package. From Paris. From Lindsey.
I tore it open (like any self-respecting girl would do with a package from Paris) and discovered tea. Not just any tea, tea from Mariage Frères that I'd been wanting to try for a long time. Nice!
I clutched the package in my hand and sneaked past the boys for a few minutes of chick time. As much as I was loving the smash 'em up, bang 'em up play with the Hexbugs, a hot cup of tea (special tea!) sounded so good. It was after all, a snow day.
I filled the tea pot with water and fondled the tea bags while it heated up. Such cute packaging. That's all it takes, right?
In this instance, the quality of the tea lived up to the fancy packaging (that's not often the case, no?). The Esprit de Noel blend is warming, spicy and perfect.
Lindsey, if you are reading this, thank you SO much for adding a little surprise to my day.
