I met a princess in plain clothes today, and this is her castle.
Her castle is The Enchanted Teacup. It’s a drive-by discovery for me. I am on my way to Gary’s Deli when I see a purple and lime green building on Tranquille Road. Yes, purple and lime green.
Qu'est-ce que c'est?

The Enchanted Teacup is half tea shop and half Tea Party!
A section of the space is reserved for loose leaf tea sales and the rest of the room is all about themed tea parties. Tiaras, wands and tutus. Everything one, aged 3 and up, should need for a fantasy tea party. No, I’m not here to rock out an Un-Birthday party Mad Hatter styles. I’m here to pick up some Darjeeling.

1st Flush Darjeeling ($11.00 for 50 grams)

I drink a lot of tea, and I’m not really picky about my tea. Bagged or loose is fine with me. I’m quite happy with a regular black tea for everyday sipping, but I try to keep some Darjeeling on hand if I want a special, more delicate brew.

The enchanted leaves unravel beautifully. My steeping today produces a mellow amber first flush Darjeeling. It’s a nice cuppa to go with an appropriate Wes Anderson film tonight.

Coconut Dream White Blend ($8.00 for 50 grams)

This is an impulse buy. I am completely sucked in by the possibility of a tea that may taste or smell like coconuts!
The bag even assures me that:
If you like coconut your (sic) sure to like this one.
Well, I like coconuts!
Holy Rupert Holmes! When I open the bag, the contents smell like how a piña colada tastes.
Look at it. The red safflowers and blue Cornflowers make this so eye pleasing. I’m in bit of a trance as I put the kettle on.

The leaves reveal a potpourri of aroma, with coconut being the team leader. I’m not usually a fan of flavoured teas, but this colourful coconut brew just put me in such a good mood.

The Plain Clothes Princess shares that The Enchanted Teacup has been around for several months. How did I not notice this before? I mean, it’s purple and green! If you prefer loose whole leaf teas you may want to wander into The Enchanted Teacup to check out their selections.
