Laduree The Melange and teacup


Good morning! The house is silent and I am settling in for a productive workday, this morning with the added power of a dainty cup of Ladurée Thé Mélange. I tasted it for the first time a few weeks ago at Ladurée in Sydney during a weekend away with my sister. My tastebuds instantly fell in love: it’s like Earl Grey mixed with roses and honey. (Maybe that sounds like it shouldn’t work but trust me, it totally does.)

That beautiful sister gave me box of the tea for my birthday so I can relive the experience whenever I like. To be honest, sipping it at my messy dining table isn’t quite as good as having it alongside salted caramel macarons in a Marie Antoinette-inspired tea room… but it’s close.
