Novel-Tea: Part 12

Sometimes I'm slow to start books that it seems everyone else finished ages ago.

Dear John is one of those books - even the movie has been out forever...and I haven't seen it yet. Book before movie... ALWAYS.


In true Nicholas Sparks' fashion, the story was quick and easy to read, involved falling in love, and flowed well with respect to both pacing and tears.

My tea of the day is the one that made me fall in love with DAVIDsTEA last year, when I thought I hated tea. This is Butterfly Jasmine. The leaves unfurl into a butterfly shape as it steeps!

The tea leaves are rolled up to look like little cocoons.

The steam fogged up my lens and by the time I snapped the shot, the magical moment was over.

Butterfly jasmine is delicious iced with a little agave nectar.

I found SUCH an appropriate dress to pair with the tea.


This dress was created by Seattle designer Luly Yang. Art in the form of fashion!
