Dragon Flower Tea











It was magical and tasted delicious too:))

Our workshop was in a very rough part of Dartmouth. In fact we had to interrupt the class at one point to call 911, as a fight was unfolding outside the windows with a baseball bat wielding madman and an equally wild lunatic
In the middle of the day, Mary and I had lunch at this tiny vegetarian tearoom in the most unlikely of places. Liu's Formosa Gift and Tea House.

Great pictures. We served these teas at a bridal shower, as iced teas in crystal pitchers. Everyone was talking about the tea.
