BLANCHE DAEL TEA PARTYzondag, mei 31, 2015Nena / turnitinsideout.com
I'm going to tell you something personal and maybe even a shocking fact about myself: I don't like coffee. Jep I said it. I'm not like 99% of the world who can't live without coffee. Instead I'm a tea addict. I always bought my tea at the supermarket, brands like Pickwick and Lipton. But last week I read an article about nettle tea. How healthy it is and how good it is for diseases and imperfect skins. The list is way to long to mention here, it seems like this tea works for almost every physic problem. It sounded quite good to me but Pickwick or Lipton don't sell nettle tea so I had to search for another alternative. My mom said me I had to go to a specialized tea store and that they always buy their coffee at Blanche Dael in Maastricht. A coffee-roasting factory with an even bigger tea assortment. They already exist since 1878 and are purveyor to the royal household. That can only be a good thing! I came home with three different tastes: Nettle tea, Bamboo fruit and Japanese cherry. Because it was my first time using fresh tea I also bought a cute floating tea egg. I had mixed expectations about the nettle tea but I was positively surprised when I tried it. The taste is very soft and delicious! I'm sold to fresh tea from now on! Are you a coffee lover or do you prefer tea ?
