Tea by Algabar

We just added a few new teas to our online boutique. Check out Starry Night, a tea that pays homage to my favorite painting by Van Gogh! It is a rooibos blended with coconut, cocoa nibs and star anise (YUM) but it is the blue cornflower and yellow safflower petals that inspired the name.

Most decadent Hong Kong afternoon tea sets

When I was in the fashion biz I spent abt 2 -3 months a year in Hong Kong. Altho it is no longer under British rule and so much has changed since those days, it remains one of the best cities for Afternoon Tea.

Which tea sounds good to you? I had an amazing meal and great experience at Cafe Grey in NYC and would love to check out Cafe Grey on the 49th floor of the Upper House Hotel in Victoria Harbour. Sounds divine!

Scones, tea and gossip -- afternoon tea is possibly the best colonial legacy in Hong Kong; here's where to find the fanciest.
