Our recent trip to Chicago garnered me just one souvenir:
It was a planned purchase, Cupcake Caramel would be proud. It was also the most money I have ever spent on tea. But I am OK with this. I “won” a sample of this tea from the lovely, Catherine. At first sip, I was hooked. Just one little problem….it is very difficult to find. However, some months ago I found that Porte Rouge in Chicago did have it. I was going to order it online but the price of the tea plus shipping was hard to justify. So I waited. Waited patiently for my next trip to Chicago. A couple of days before leaving, I called Porte Rouge to see if they had some on hand. They did. I explained I was coming in from Michigan and wondered how it would be best to find them from our hotel. Imagine my surprise when they offered to deliver it to my hotel–great customer service! The transaction was handled over the phone and sure enough, it was delivered as promised. My only (yummy) souvenir from Chicago. Or should I say France? It is my favorite tea ever, next to this one:
I think I would really like to try Harney and Son’s Tower of London Blend or the Diamond Jubilee one. Has anyone tried these?
What is your favorite tea?
