French Macaroons & Tea


Morning tea today was a lovely Yunnan black tea, given to me by a tea friend, accompanied by two French Macaroons. The flavors were Cassis for the purple one and Fleur de Sel for the speckled one. These are two of my favorite things and bring great joy.

Henri Mariage, founder of Mariage Freres, a wonderful french tea business, said:
The fragrance of adventure and poetry endlessly pervades each cup of tea.

This morning my tea adventure was to France. Can you picture yourself sitting along a sidewalk cafe sipping tea, eating a french macaroon, and reading poetry or better yet sharing with a special friend?
