|Tea is the new candle!!!|
Then one day I was shopping for a gift to bring to a friend's house. I was in the process of looking for my nine hundredth candle.....I mean how many candles can you buy? Everyone knows that if I'm coming to their home there is probably a candle in their future. As I was walking down Third avenue I noticed this great looking tea place! I thought how new....how different. What I didn't know was that tea shops, tea cafes and tea menus were popping up all over the place. I walked into Kusmi Tea like such a newbie. The store was modern, clean and well stocked with all kinds of fabulous teas from Paris. I was walking through the isles and checking out all the different teas and tea products. I was deciding between the "Assortment of 5 tins" and the "Presentation box". I went with the "Presentaion box" but the decision was not easy. This beautiful tea shop had wellness teas, herbal teas, flavored teas and classic teas. With names like "Sweet Love" and "Be Cool" and flavors like "Strawberry Green Tea" and "Orange and Cinnamon Rooibos" my experience with tea had just changed. As I paid, the salesman gave me the history of Kusmi Tea and a sample as well! With my bag in hand I stood there talking about tea and sipping it slowly. I didn't want it to end. I realized just then that tea had become sexy! Tea had become the new candle!
Anyway, I have to go now and make myself a soothing cup of caramel tea....and there is not a sore throat in sight!
