V. is out working in the garden and I am having a lie-in. My sinuses are acting up again and the discovery of a (not) new series called: The Paradise is keeping me horizontal and happy. What fun!
Enjoy! I am... along with a cup of Rouge d'automne tea by Mariage Freres, the perfect treat for a cool, sunny fall Saturday:
Autumn, which turns maple leaves fiery red, is a good time to indulge in a delicious treat that erases the bitterness of rainy days. That is why Mariage Frères has employed an almost forbidden fruit - marrons glacés, a famous French indulgence ever since the days of Louis XIV - to create its new "Autumnal Red" tea.A red rooibos from South Africa, mild in taste with very little tannin, has been combined with the flavour of fine candied chestnuts and Bourbon vanilla, yielding a most striking yet smooth cup, warm and festive, with fruity and slightly spicy harmonies that precede a final note of honey and dried fruit.
