Snoozy Sundays

I am one of those people that thinks a cup of tea solves a lot. Not everything, but a lot. I used to get through coffee by the gallon, but when I started my current job I decided to give up the caffeine along with a lot of other toxins from the office…..

I now drink 'normal' tea throughout the day and chamomile tea in the evnings, with the odd bag or two of peppermint thrown in when I'm feeling adventurous.

In Broadway Deli yesterday I came across these little bags of wonder…


They are tiny chiffon type bags- or ‘tea temples’ full of chamomile flowers and I love them!! I drink chamomile tea in the evenings to try and help me sleep, along with warm baths, lavender drenched pillows, etc. I am an advertising executives DREAM. I read the back of the box and became convinced instantly that these bags would help me sleep where all others had failed. After all, I had no idea that ‘normal’ tea bags are full of dust! Did you? Or crushed flowers? These aren’t! Oh no, these are 100% whole flowers from Croatia! How exotic. They are so pretty I feel I want to place them carefully in my underwear drawers.

So currently I am sat here with my very pleasant cup of chamomile flowers, along with a (very small) slice of Nigel Slaters’ fruit cake, still warm from the oven.

Ignore the burnt bits, they add to the flavour.


So I am all set. Rob is watching the rugby. Again. Maybe I will sleep well after all.
Goodnight. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Anna, Anna, will you ever learn? I suspect you would need to take out another mortgage if you were to drink that tea for the rest of your life? As long as it makes you feel better dear...
P.S Tick Tock tea is the future - it is caffenine free and organic. Sadly no flowers though x
