I got the frozen vanilla chai drink. I have to say it was WAY WAY to sweet. I did not enjoy it. I had 2-3 sips of it that day. I put it in the freezer and thought I would try it the next day...I tried it the following day and I just could not drink it. I felt it was such a waste, but there was no way to drink this pile of sugar.
I stopped in for a quick drink of HK Style Milk tea. It was very good and refreshing.
Here is an interesting fact about Hong Kong Style Milk Tea- Hong Kong milk tea is also known as “pantyhose tea” or “silk stocking tea” because it is often brewed in a large tea sock that resembles pantyhose. Who knew!!!
Beautiful artwork on the wall.
In my efforts to try as many teas as I could while on layover, I only drank tea and then headed to another fun tea to try.
I loved the fun jug the tea was in, it added to the experience.
This tea reminds me a lot of the tea I had in Thailand. It is black tea, water, and condensed milk. It is sweet and smooth.
If you have the chance, try it!!!! It is not like any tea you will find in the states.
Lavender is one of the world's most ancient, and commonly used herbs. The first recorded use of the sweet smelling herb appeared in ancient Phoenician inscriptions dating back to 1000 BC. The ancient Romans were also very fond of the herb and used it as a fragrant bath scent in their public bathhouses. In fact, it is believed that the genus name Lavendula stems from the Latin word lavare meaning "to wash." Modern botanical science indicates that there are at least 28 known species of Lavender - some of these are wild and some are commercially cultivated - the plant grows everywhere from parts of Africa to China. The version that we offer here is a wonderfully fresh smelling organic variety that comes from Eastern Tibet - no chemicals or pesticides were used in its cultivation.
