di Tazza, my favorite chai place!!!!




I am not a big walker, but when I can walk my sisters dog, Brooklyn, and involve tea I am in!!
While in Vancouver Washington I wanted to be sure to visit di Tazza and have my favorite chai. 




I discovered di Tazza a few years ago on a trip to see my sister and her family.  I also discovered that they make the best chai!  I am not sure who they use for their blend, but it is smooth and has a nice bland of spices.


Brook and I chilled outside after our walk since it was a beautiful day.  She liked the cold water too.


If I had time I would have gotten food here too, it is always scrumptious.  But all I had time for this trip was the chai.

Advent tea calendar - English Tea Shop

  
I got this as a gift and I love it!!!!  Today is December 1, so I happily tried day 1’s tea.  


This tea was really good.  It was almost chai like with a hint of sweetness- the pomegranate.  I made 3 cups!!




I googled tea advent calendars and was surprised at the prices....but if you scroll all the way to the bottom you see the best deal.

I’m hoping my friend was able to take advantage of this deal when she bought me this 😀😀☕️☕️☕️

Hibiscus Blueberry Republic of Tea


I was in Homes County Ohio with friends.  We were playing tourist.  At Walnut Creek Cheese, I found some Republic of Tea loose leaf tea.  I have never been to a store that had bulk loose leaf Republic of Tea.  I was like a kid in a candy store.  Lifting lids and smelling the tea.  Reading labels and getting giddy about all the choices.  I wonder why more shops do not have the loose leaf option.  It is so much better then the bagged option.



Walnut Creek Cheese has a nice selection of tea and tea flavoring.  It was super fun to browse their selections.


from the website: "Tangy Nigerian hibiscus mingles with the lush, deep flavor of blueberries in this fragrant, floral blend. Sip and sigh as you revel in hints of berry and bright citrus flavors in the hibiscus. We've also added a touch of lively rosehips and sweet, juicy apples."




I ended up purchasing this loose leaf tea- blueberry hibiscus.  It is so delicious!!  I made it into an iced tea the other day. It was not overly tart with the hibiscus and the blueberry is a nice touch. It all blends so nicely together.




My friends.  We usually only see each other at Beulah Beach maybe once or twice a year.  But, they were in my neck of the woods, so I took a half day of vacation to be tourists with them.  It is wonderful to have friends like these ladies!!!
