So finally I remembered to take my camera and snap a couple of picks while I did some baking. I am passionate about food,so I will be putting up some food posts from now on. They came out really nice and soft, which is great. I was able to use my moms beautiful tea cups which are amazing,love the vintage feel too them. I am quite pick about the tea I drink, Lipton Green tea seems to be the only tea that soothes and relaxes me,so I highly recommend it!
What kinds of tea do you use?
