Mid-October, already and no denying it’s autumn. One is entitled (required?) to have tea and an indulgent snack in the afternoon from now until spring, right?

Favourite pairings…

black Ceylon tea + ginger cookies

reeeeally black, but not tannic, unsweeted ceylon black tea and juggary

red rooibos tea (with sugar and milk!) and spice cake

green tea and chinese egg custards

jasmine tea and thin, sweet biscuits

earl grey tea and a whole lotta steamed milk and honey
