gifts from far away

my sweet darling brazilian friend bela went to amsterdam, belgium, paris and back home to brazil over the holidays. she asked me what i wanted from paris. well, being the tea fanatic that i am of course i asked for mariage freres tea. and just look at the load of tea she brought me back from all over!! plus i got a fantastic scarf her god mother made for me. i love it!!

she got me mariage freres earl grey french blue tea and it is fantastic!! she also got me teas from brazil and belgium. there is some melitta coffee in there as well. she said it is popular in brazil. of course it is, it's melitta ;)

and for ryan's drinking pleasure there is a bottle of cachaca which we will enjoy plenty of caipirinhas!!

What a lovely gift. Wish we had tea shops in the US like they do in Europe. I still order my favorite tea from a little tea shop in Geneva and have it shipped over to me about twice a year. Enjoy!

How divine!!! I've been getting back on the tea bandwagon lately and hope to visit some fun specialty tea shops soon for some yummies...
