Yesterday we had the joy of participating in the wonderful Protest Jewellery Workshop run by Pretty Political… it was fantastic fun, and beautifully inspiring. I also enjoyed a delightful cuppa tea in The Warehouse Cafe.
“Our Virunga Earl Grey is a scented pure origin tea, sourced from the finest tea gardens in Rwanda, found close to the country’s border with the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Virunga National Park. Here, tea bushes grow slowly, at high altitude and relatively low temperatures, developing greater flavour before they are individually picked and blended with a traditional Bergamot oil to give a distinctive flavour of citrus, with spicy floral notes. It really is perfection to a tea and we look forward to you enjoying it as much as we do.” [source]
Birchall Tea’s Virunga Earl Grey was a delightful brew to compliment our industrious evening of creativity! This Earl Grey was beautifully fragrant, with deliciously strong notes of bergamot, and just a hint of citrus giving the tea a pleasant acidic finish. For me, it was served with a splash of soy milk that evened out the slight bitterness.
A perfect tea for jewellery making! To see more of what I made during the evening, visit my blog at Chloe Henderson.
