Today I am bringing you another guest post about tea.  This time Erica talks about a favourite tea of hers: Moroccan Mint Tea and how easily mint can be grown at home. For a while now Moroccan mint tea has been my favourite tea. I usually treat myself to it in a café I go to regularly, but it’s actually pretty easy to make at home. Growing your own mint is easy because the plant can be a bit of a thug. It’s best to find a contained bed or a pot to grow it in, so it doesn’t get… View Post

It’s Sunday afternoon, I’m  looking at a humongous pile of sock yarn and if I’m being honest I’m quite frankly faffing. There are plenty of things I could be doing. I could be catching up on work.

In my case, drinking tea with my mum started early – mum always drank tea… View Post

I’ve just returned from a lovely last minute trip to Edinburgh. I’ve never been to Scotland before and although I am nowhere near feeling 100% I decided to just grab the bull by the horns as they say and jump right in. I’m in need of catching up on some afternoon teas in order to complete my afternoon tea challenge and decided I’d jump right in to the Edinburgh Afternoon Tea scene and partake in a few cullinery delights that Scotland has to offer. I was lucky enough to have 2 afternoon teas and 2 cream teas. I also sampled… View Post
