As we're all in sheltering from the August rain and cold, how better to do it than with a lovely cup of tea?
Living in Austin Texas, I got really into the fantastic selection from the Republic of Tea and a pot of Spring Cherry green tea sits, adored, on the kitchen counter. They give quite good packaging too.
Speaking of packaging, our Native Ringtons apparently based their packaging design on old ration books from the war.
Harvey Nichols own brand teas are weirdly well-priced at something like £4.99 a tin and their peppermint is the best I've yet tried.
So, on this wet evening, brew up and snuggle down.
