Today was such a wonderfully sunny day, and very uncharacteristic of Boston. Walking outside felt like a celebration. Beautiful nature, the sun and clear blue sky...Nice weather means non-bum-tastic clothing, so I wore a little splash of floral to compliment the splendid day.

Lately...I have been drinking SO MUCH tea! Inspired by the tea culture of the Near East/North Africa, I mix mint, Irish breakfast tea and agave/honey for a refreshing, warms-your-soul beverage.
Perfect as a digestif and after meals, pouring the tea into these cool Moroccan-inspired tea glasses that my sister bought in France (resembles big shot glasses) makes drinking tea a delight. My sister's friend made us really great tea this past summer, in which she added orange blossom water, and so I added a bit of orange zest, which wasn't the greatest substitute, but the tea had a nice subtle citrus flavor. I paired my mint black tea with one of my fave biscuits, Italian wafer cookies, "Quadratini" (I love the Lemon and Vanilla flavors). They're all natural too, so yay!
