Turkish Tea


Awhile ago I bought this Turkish 
apple tea at the airport. 
The package is so adorable,
it has the shape of an apple,
how obvious. It was €5. 

I love tea, more than coffee.
How about you?

So of course we always
have a small dainty bite with
our tea! I baked some paper
lined sponge cakes. 
Overall it tasted good c:

My grandma passed away
a few days ago. She was in
coma and never woke up. 
Me and my grandma had a
'neutral' bond, we don't 
hate each other, but there
wasn't really a warm 
connection either. 

But I do feel sad. Sad for
papa for losing mum. 

 "Add 2 teaspoons of tea" was the directions. Me, finding it very minuscule, added 4 instead of 2. As result: tóóó sweet. I think 1 teaspoon was enough as well..


I'm Feeling: schoolstressed
Music: Birdy - Shelter One of my favorite singers of the moment.
Food: a biscuit
Drink: tea

  3. You can buy Turkish apple tea at the AH, it comes in a bigger package and is a lot cheaper too! And if your AH doesn't sell it then I'm sure an oriental store will!

  5. I LOVE TEA TOOOOOOOOO, YES, ALL CAPS <3
    Wow I've never tried Turkish Tea. ;____;
    But how I wish I could.

    Awww, my grandma passed away too. Even though we were really close, it wasn't hard for me to let go because I knew that she'll be in a better place. How is your dad now? Hopefully all is well.

    Take care :)

  7. The tea and cakes look really yummy! I much prefer tea over coffee too - I try to avoid large amounts of caffeine, if possible.

    I'm really sorry to hear about your grandma Mei. It must be hard for your dad; losing a parent is never easy...

  8. So sorry to hear about your grandmother. I suppose having a neutral relationship is better to avoid the feeling of loss, huh?

    On the bright side, I love Turkish apple tea. I bought some crazy amount of it like 3 pounds, while I was in Turkey.

  9. Oh mei, I wish we live close to each other. I'd pop by unannounced every Sunday for tea and cupcakes. I used to love tea but I appreciate the jittery I get after coffee haha.

  10. I'm sorry about your grandma, I hope your grandpa is doing okay.

    I like some coffee, but you can hardly call it coffee as it's usually more milk than coffee. And the chai latte I usually get is no coffee at all! Tea is always nice, as long as it doesn't have to much caffiene in it. Looks nice! :]

    I definitely prefer tea to coffee. Although I like coffee too, tea is just my thing haha!
