Some vacation acquisitions

While in Spokane, Wa., Shannon and I visited an adorable coffee/tea shop called Atticus. They kept all the tea in large glass jars along the wall in this one nook so it looked like an apothecary. We went in one day to warm up after ice skating and I had no choice but to drag Shannon and her mom back in the next day.

I picked up two kinds of loose leaf tea while I was there (plus a super cute water bottle):  Market Spice Green and Earl Grey with Lavender.

Apparently "market spice" is a west coast thing, but I had never heard of it. I haven't properly tried that yet. The earl grey is actually something we sell at the west coast stores but never get in the east coast shops so I was curious to try it out. It's nice. It smells pretty floral but mostly you just taste the black tea base. It's like drinking tea and your posh aunt's house.
This little guy was a world market purchase but he makes a damn fin cuppa
