Townshend’s Tea House…..

Today I had the pleasure of visiting the Townshend’s Tea House on Alberta Street in NE Portland.  What a gem!

So many choices, and I am new to the land of teas…so I asked for a suggestion.  To my surprise they had about 16 different kinds of Chai Tea to experience.  All of which were said to be wonderful.  So I then asked for the waitress’ favorite.  She quickly explained about the Green Tea and Coconut Chai that was indeed one of her choices.

Yes please…….I will be back, say, next week!

 

Absolutely delish!

Each one a true wonder —

Have you ever noticed when you look, I mean really look at a tulip – just how truly wonderful they are?  Each one has it’s own unique blend of colors.  You have to look intensely at every single petal, and you will see the markings of a genius with a paintbrush.  Although they may seem all yellow or all red or a combination of both.  When you really look – each one is as individual as we are.  Fingerprints in the petals, all shapes and sizes and each one blooms just when it is supposed to.  One more reason to love looking at nature through my lens.
