Summer Pudding

Summer Pudding

It's still summer in California.

A trip to the San Francisco Bay Area last weekend
yielded me some beautiful berries and fresh red currants
Delicious red summer fruits that are perfect for making summer puddings

A trip to London in May yielded me some unique tea blends,
including a summer favorite, 

Summer Pudding tea is from my favorite British tea purveyor,

 Summer Pudding Tea

Summer Pudding tea is as delicious as it sounds. 

Imagine the delicious kitchen smells of making summer puddings
or your favorite red fruit jams
and you've captured the essence of Summer Pudding tea.

This black tea is flavored with succulent summer
 fruits and a hint of spicy juniper.  I enjoy it both hot and iced with a little sugar
to sweeten up its fruity taste.

Whittard of Chelsea

I never visit England without a trip to Whittard of Chelsea
to stock up on unique flavored black teas with wonderful British names like:
Summer Pudding, English Rose and Sticky Toffee Pudding.

There are branches all over London and the UK. 
My favorite Whittard of Chelsea locations are at London's Covent Garden
  Bath and York England.

 Just look for the blue signs
and step into a Whittard of Chelsea branch
where you'll find 130 tempting tea blends including,
Summer Pudding...
a summer time favorite of mine.
