Flora Teas

Anniversary Tea

Today’s tea is Harrods’ Anniversary. I bought a canister of this tea at Heathrow before my flight back to Bergen earlier this year. London is a big city and a long weekend is not enough to fully explore the city. As I’ve said in my London post, I travelled with a friend. I had to…

Houjicha

Houjicha is a Japanese roasted green tea. According to Wikipedia, houjicha is roasted in a porcelain pot over charcoal. So that explains the reddish color and the smoked scent of this tea. Before my Japanese friend head back to Japan, I ordered another bunch of Japanese snacks and teas. I got one pack of sencha,…

The other day I made a discovery while I was checking out our pantry. Because I am petite (I only stand 5’2.), I cannot reach nor see what is on the top shelf of our pantry so I got me a chair to help me. I found some paper plates, paper cups, a pack of…

A Perfect Friday Night

For some, a perfect Friday night mean going to parties but for me it is sharing a pot of tea and a carrot cake with my other half.

A Cosy Saturday Evening

After a long day at work, my friend and I drove to Ikea. She wanted to buy a broom while I was looking for storage boxes and teapots. But before shopping we had some pizzas and sausages. After that we started looking for the things that are on our shopping list. Guess what. We ended…
