Hey Posse. Possibly prior to now I’ve talked about my Tea Cabinet? Lately it was repurposed for Jin’s meals containers and lunch packs. Immediately we realised we had been hoarding tea and infrequently utilizing it. Quell HORROR! So, in response I’ve been attempting to drink as a lot tea as doable, simply to decrease the ridiculous quantity we’ve got. A few of it was EXTREMELY outdated. We moved right here about 7 years in the past and up the again have been teas that we introduced with us. Sure, it’s an issue. one of many issues that got here to gentle was a canister of Shalimar Tea! I do know, so cool. Initially I’d purchased three canisters. One was used, one was gifted and the final one was put away. I don’t even know in the event that they make it anymore.

Above image is my tea and low making station. I reckon extra time is spent right here than wherever else within the kitchen.

Lately we had some mates over. They introduced brunch and we equipped Shalimar Tea. It was bloody glam. We ate, chatted, laughed and each sip of tea was met with raptures. Typically it doesn’t take a lot to create particular bonds and moments.

As quickly as I sip my Shalimar Tea pleased recollections of hanging out within the Guerlain Champs E;ysees retailer basement cafe come flooding again. For the few years it was there Neela Vermeire and I might meet and spend an hour or so chatting, consuming, consuming. It was a magical time in my life. Jin and I have been solely newly in love. We have been discovering the world collectively, nicely I used to be rediscovering it by means of his eyes. The weblog (Australian Perfume Junkies) was changing into one thing to be pleased with and the trade was excited for us. It was a heady time.

Shalimar Tea is a black tea with a touch of citrus and vanilla added. Nothing excessive, simply sufficient to provide a mild reminder of the perfume. I add milk and sugar, it offers it a bit of further sweetness and the lactones are barely ice creamy.

Even the canister is attractive.
