Nothing A Nice Cup of Tea Can't Solve!

Saturday, July 13, 2013

I've written quite a lot of posts about tea in this blog, and that is because I considered myself an avid tea drinker (aside from a coffeeholic). I love tea and I have been drinking tea since I was a child. I saw my grandma drinks tea everyday from her green pot and ever since then I started to drink tea everyday just like her.

Contrary to drinking coffee which I took to re-energize and wake me up, drinking tea is my way of relaxing. I drank tea mostly to relax myself, that's why I usually drink it in the afternoon to wind down or at night before I go to sleep; but depending on the type of tea I also drank tea to re-charge my energy and mind if needed.

Nothing a nice cup of tea can't solve ;)

I normally don't have my tea appropriately as the picture above (which I made via Polyvore), but if I could then I would serve my tea complete with a tea towel, and a pretty tea tray as above ;)

My dream is to collect saucer & cups, but they are not easily available here in my country, you usually would have to buy a set. And it's also hard to find a vintage saucer & cup here :(
I love the above Green Gate's June saucer & cup, it has a very pretty mint color with a floral rim motif. It goes perfectly matchy-matchy with the mint colored cocktail/tea towel from Uncommon Goods. I love that store.

The gorgeous tray that steal my attention is a work of art from the artist Hiromi Sato. It is called The Twins Woodland Tea Party. I love the beautiful colorful design. You can get it via the Gallery Nucleus which housed some amazing artists there. Below is a more detailed picture of this gorgeous art work:

isn't it so lovely?

Meanwhile, let's see some tea collection below. What are your favorite teas? I basically love all types of teas, from black tea to red tea or green tea.. I would consume any tea, really..
I actually love tasting on different kinds of teas. There are not so many types of teas that I've tried yet but I am willing to explore more ;)

I like it hot or cold, and I prefer tea with sugar instead of milk, especially in terms of hot tea. But I do like several types of milk tea such as Thai Ice Tea or Malaysian Teh Tarik ;)

Here are some samples of interesting tea selections that I would love to try one day:

Keep Calm and Put The Kettle On
  List of teas featured above are as below:

AriZona The Tea Of Life
266.945 IDR -

Calypso Mango Iced Tea Half Gallon
399.125 IDR -

Timmy's Tea Sampler
179.730 IDR -

Harrods Heritage Loose Tea Trio (3x125g)
301.130 IDR -

Do you like any of the teas I featured above? Or maybe you have tried one of those? Lemme know how it tastes. Those brands are not available here in my country so I am very curios about them, especially the ones with the cute packaging (I am a cute packaging hoarder ;p).

Meanwhile, incase you want to know, here's my current own tea stash that are on stacked in my tea/coffee cupboard ^o^

Of all those teas above, my most favorite one is the Sosro Heritage Jasmine Tea (which is my all-time fave!), and my least favorite one is the Kruger Chai Latte. After tasting this one I decided that chai tea is not my cup of tea ;p

How about you? Do you like chai tea? Or do you love jasmine tea just like me? Let me know in the comment below, will you?

Also, if you like throwing parties or if you're looking for ideas for your "tea party" theme, you can check out my Tea Party complete ideas post and lemme know what you think.

Have a great weekend, guys!

My Garden Journal

Welcome to my imaginary post ;p

I did a few of these kind of posts a while back because I simply have super big imaginations. Those who are close to me or have known me for a long time must already know about my daydreaming habits ;p

Yes, I have an outta this world imagination so I love to imagine a lot of things, most of them are daily ordinary things. For example, today I'm imagining that I have a gardening hobby. I imagine I have a green thumb and that I am actually a good gardener. As a home gardener I had to have my tools, right? And since I love decorative things so my gardening tools must also be cute and pretty ;)

So here are my gardening tools if I were a real gardener in my imaginary world:
My Gardening Tools

Specially reserved for my imagination ;p

According to my itsy bitsy knowledge of gardening, three of the most important tools when gardening are: a plant sprayer and planter tools, as well as a gardening gloves to protect your hands. My choice of gardening tools are these green/red floral beauties from the NYBG Shop. I kinda love that shop because it has a lot of cute gardening tools just like these one. Aren't they pretty?

I actually prefer to have a few of gardening gloves because I'd like to wash and rotate them, that way if I wash a pair after using them, then I would still have another pair to use. My current favorite gardening gloves is from The Thoughtful Gardener that I found via House of Fraser. I really love the pattern on it which is kinda like vintage pattern.

To cut out flower stems and trim plant leaves you gotta have a sharp gardening shears. This Crate & Barrel gardening shears was a great gift and it comes in a neat little green box complete with a garden deck, which is a deck of cards with complete growing and care tips for all types of garden plants. Pretty useful and thoughtful gift.

The newest addition to the little garden is the Orla Kiely 3 herbs pot with tray. It's ready to be planted with some kitchen seeds and then put on the kitchen window sill. I love Orla Kiely designs, their patterns are always unique and very original. You can almost always tell that it's an Orla Kiely design just by looking at the pattern. Oh and one more thing, a good gardening bible is the Better Homes & Garden's "Garden Book" which is actually an old book that contains lots of recipes for a beautiful garden!

The other two gardening gloves that are also my favorites are these two below. The green ones on the left is by Frontier Gloves, while the pink floral on the right is definitely my most favorite which is from Vera Bradley Lilli Bell collection:

That's it for my [Imaginary] post this time, I hope you don't think I'm crazy, LOL. I just need to channel these imaginations somewhere, so why not on my own blog? ^o^

I'll see you in my next [Imaginary] series post!
