Tea Tasting at Cafe Zoe

So, I guess I’m supposed to take lessons in Time Management because I have so much to do and I am finding it very difficult to juggle between blogging and studying! {Did I mention I have less than 6 days for my University exams? } *bites nails nervously*

But for now, I’m not gonna bore you with all the soppy melodrama of college life. Because I’m sharing my experience at the tea tasting event that I was sooooooo excited about! ๐Ÿ˜€

I know I’m 2 weeks late but I am so excited ! I hope your gonna enjoy this too!

So, this event was organized by Splenda, which is a zero calorie sweetener. And along with that there was this amazing lady – Radhika Batra Shah of Radhika’s Fine teas.

The event began essentially with a tea ceremony. This tea ceremony was, to say the least, a very enriching experience. to out it in Radhika’s words, it was tea from the gardens to our cups. fresh, organic and very very refreshing and if you are someone who cannot do without sugar in your tea, you can get a little healthier and have Splenda instead. Trust me when I say this, a mere pinch is more than enough! It adds instant sweetness without any calories!

My partner is crime, Karishma Shah {Click here to see her blog} and I were sooooo excited for this event that was held in Cafe Zoe, Lower Parel, Mumbai.

There I met another blogger friend Purabi Naha and we 3 have gelled pretty well since! ๐Ÿ™‚

The tea ceremony began with a morning tea, called the Longjing tea. The best part about this tea ceremony was that it was served with a food pairing that would go excellently well with the tea in question.
