A second post about the tea swap













The tea swap! I love this swap! Here is the first post about it.
Lisa sent me tea along with her cute illustrations. This sweet lady sent me a couple of her favourites although she missed the swap (thank you!! I so wish I could have included everyone!). The same went for Ana who sent me delicous tea and the beautiful tote bag she made. Nevena was in the swap sent me a bunch of lovely teas from Serbia, look at that moustache!
Maria sent me wonderful teabags of Genmai-Cha as a member of the swap and from Stella I received her favourite tea + some lovely extras.

Thank you ladies, you made me very happy!

  2. oh my god. i thought that tea in the left on the last photo doesn't grow anywhere but here, in Bulgaria! we call it "mursalski chai" and it's soooo good!
    this is the taste of my childhood! my grand mother made it to me (with lots and lots of sugar, hehe) and after growing up i always wanted to ask her what kind it was, but we had a big Bulgarian family drama going on so i never did. many years later i went to a mountain trip in a town called Trygrad (the name translates as "three cities" - and it's not even a city, because it's too small, how cool is this). the locals told me i had to try their tea and that's how i found it.
    right after i saw your post i researched and it seems like they have it in Greece, Albania and Macedonia as well.
    but anyway, i got so excited, i swear! I hope you like it too. by the way i can see your tea on the photo is one of great quality - you can always be sure of that if it's green, not yellow.
