~ Delightful Teas For The Hot Season~

Here are a few quality Le Palais Des Thés (look in my blogroll for the link to their site) tea blends which I highly recommend you to try. They a
re so refreshing, intoxicating and enjoyable. Perfect for drinking in the morning (Thés Des Sources & Thé Des Sables), in the afternoon (Darjeeling) or in the evening, after dinner (Blue Of London) or for making ambrosial ice teas and luscious baked goods.

  65. Une ballade au pays des thés, des sculptures et la nature. J'ai beaucoup de mal à me décider entre le thé des Sables et ses parfums exotiques et l'acidulé de celui aux 7 agrumes.
