Here are a couple indulgences that I am quite devoted to these days.
Posh fancy French Teas. Since working from home, I drink a lot more tea and have done a great job of working my way through a large collection/hoard of the stuff. Despite myself,I have admittedly developed a bit of a coffee lately. Nevertheless this will never threaten my love for tea and my slimmer wallet doesn’t seem to stop my extravagant tea purchases either. We all have our indulgences and this is my immovable love, a canister of tea every couple of months is acceptable…I think?!
\ Mariage Frères Paris – Ginza
In my opinion, this is an elegant blend and masterful combination of flavours. The caramel is gentle and provides a creamy entrance before the livelier fresher strawberry notes. A delicious afternoon tea.
How to prepare Paris – Ginza:
Measure out 2,5 g of tea for 20 cl of pure, filtered water
Bring the water to a simmer (about 95° C) and let the tea infuse for 5 minutes
My tea cup is from Reiko Kaneko, I have had it for a while now and i am pleased that the gold plating remains perfect.
My newest indulgence/necessity is hand cream. I collect them such that I am never without them. Each and every room has one, as does each bag. My job is such that my hands need to be spotless and so I am continually washing my hands before working cloth, metal, clay etc.
