Imperial Chai tea

imperial chai tea muffins

The Imperial Chai Tea is a delicious blend of black tea and spices (cardamom and cloves) wich was on the shelves of the Palais de Thés earlier this year.

Most of Indians drink it on a daily basis and infuse it in boiling whole milk with sugar. Chaiwallahs sell this tea everywhere in the streets and in the trains of India. On the picture below there also are Imperial Chaï flavored home-made muffins!

Moomin’s tea

  • thé moomins tea
  • thés moomins teas
  • thés moomins teas
  • thé moomins teabox boite
  • thé moomins tea bags sachets

Found in a Finnish online store (because the Moomin’s country is actually Finland and not Japan), those official Moomin’s teas are sold for a little less then 4 euros for 100 grams.
Those are flavoured black teas, here are the various flavours:

  • Moominmamma’s Magic Potion – Strawberries and rhubarb
  • Go for It! – Blueberry muffin
  • Sweetheart – Wild strawberries
  • I Should Know – Lemon

I found them all to be delicious, very tasty yet balanced!
Best served in the Moomin’s tea set :

Le thé au jasmin de Delhaize

C’est de la bombe bébé! Enfin si vous permettez de m’exprimer ainsi. Trouvé au détour d’un rayon de chez Delhaize, acheté plus par curiosité qu’autre chose, quelle ne fut pas ma surprise en goûtant ce splendide thé au jasmin!

Il est léger, fleuri, pas trop amer, juste comme il doit être!


2.49 € pour 20 sachets en mousseline !
Il ne faut pas hésiter, foncez chez Delhaize!
