Hey Posse, People know that Jin and I love tea. This Christmas we were inundated, happily. Some people even hit the jackpot and got us our favourites. My preferred tea rituals since spending a lot of time in India in the noughties and pre teens are to have a pot of tea in the afternoon when time permits and a cuppa before bedtime. This got me thinking about tea in perfume. I have a couple of favourites. L’Artisan Tea for Two and Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Mimosa is my current flanker. There’s a travel of Bulgari Eau Parfumee au The Vert and FB of Noir but they rarely get a spritz, even though I enjoy them. I’m sure there are more around here, OH! Just thought of one Masque Milano Russian Tea, very nice.
Tea for Drinking and Perfuming
So today I’m asking about Tea Perfumes or Leaves that you particularly love. Doesn’t have to be posh, or memorable. If you love a tea bag from the supermarket for your tea drinking, coolio, me too. I’m as happy with Lipton as I am with Guerlain Shalimar tea. If ever you think I might need some more tea, here’s a tip. My all time favourite tea is Royal Blend teabags from Fortnum & Mason. It used to be so glamorous to bring back a bunch of them to Australia after every visit. Since then the cachet has worn off a little because they are available at my favourite department store David Jones. Hasn’t diminished my love for them one whit.
Also, my perfumes that are tea-centric come for completely different price points and availabilities. If you love it, wear it. Also, don’t feel embarrassed or shamed into not commenting if your favourite tea or tea perfume is a cheapy. We are not snobs, join in, tell us all. We love it when you comment and create a conversation. Also, your favourite budget choice could help us to find new things.
So what are your favourite Teas for perfume and drinking?
