Coconut Chocolate Tea Blend

The first thing I do in the morning is make a cup of tea. Alex isn’t even allowed to talk to me until I have my mug of tea in one hand and bowl of Rice Krispies in the other hand. I also get a bit grumpy when Eamon has the day off on Sky News and I have to watch Mark Longhurst. I like Stephen Dixon though. He’s nice to look at first thing in the morning.

Cherry Vanilla Tea Cookies

These cookies are just so darn adorable I almost don’t want to eat them. Almost! I brought these along with me to a holiday cookie party along with my peppermint spiral cookies and Snickerdoodle Truffles. There is also a little bit of edible glitter mixed in with the powdered sugar which make them look extra whimsical.

Bubble Tea


Bubble Tea is officially* the “it” thing this summer in London! Not one, but two dedicated bubble tea outlets have opened in the last two months. I started thinking about bubble tea when Ute went to Boba Jam back in January (there are also plenty of places in Chinatown that serve it and I’ve also had it in Ping Pong before) and a few weeks ago my interest was renewed when I found Bubbleology on twitter.

Bubbe tea was originated in Taiwan in the 1980’s where it’s as popular as soda in North America. I read somewhere that there are 8,000 bubble tea cafes in Taiwan! I used to live in Seattle and it’s a common to find it there too.

I love drinking tea but didn’t know that much about the different varieties. Andrea from Made With Pink was also there!
