A Very Eclectic East Tea!

Today at Eclectic East we are enjoying a nice cuppa.

Not just any cup of tea but an eclectic one! We just returned from India where we were served darjeeling first flush, a wonderful light tea, served without milk. Today we have made our Indian tea in our traditional Chinese tea set given to us as a wedding present; the characters say “double happiness” which is always given to a newly married couple. To add to the eclectic mix we stirred our tea with a Japanese wooden spoon and served our tea with Japanese green tea cookies brought back from our recent trip to Kyoto. Delicious! (The tray is Ikea 😦 sorry to let you down!)
