I like tea. My love, A., shares this passion and this weekend, we indulged in many a tea treat! First we had lunch at the divine Blue Koi, in Leawood, Kansas. A. had the best oolong tea (King’s) and we planned to take some home, until we saw the price tag. But a day later, we’re reconsidering and may just have to go back and get some. They have a full selection of wonderful teas there, and the cutest tea nook where they keep all the lovely mugs in which they steep and serve the tea.
I had to try their bubble tea after falling in love with our local House of Cha’s iced honey milk tea and it was sweet and tasty goodness. After our appetites had been whet, we had to stop in at House of Cha today as well. I got that favorite bubble tea and A. tried another Oolong, which we both decided was just yum. Then, on our way home, we stopped at the Merc and A. found an Oolong there to try. I think we’re both less thrilled with this one, and so we’ll be sure to return to both Blue Koi and House of Cha for satisfaction.
What and where have you found YOUR favorite tea(s)? Among the house favorites here are Republic of Tea’s blackberry sage and honey ginseng green, Twinings Lady Grey and Ceylon, and good old Lipton!
