Today I wanted to share some of my favorite fashion finds. I love pastel colors because they remind me of spring - plus my kitchen tile backsplash has an array of happy green colors. :)
This year though, I've been noticing more pastel greens to be the newest color trend, so when I saw this bright green dress at Nordstrom, I immediately fell in love with it. It's a dress by Frenchi in a color called Green Placid.
You'll see me wearing this in my Taiwanese Pineapple Cake (tart) video tutorial, where I've paired it with a simple white 3/4 sleeve cardigan. In addition to being really comfortable to wear, it also has a sweet scalloped hem.
This morning I got a chance to brew a batch of Golden Dragon Yellow Tea I recently bought from Teavana.
It's supposed to be one of the rarest teas in the world and it is their Limited Edition Yellow Tea. At $29.98 for 2 oz., it's one of Teavana's most expensive teas. Naturally, this peaked my interest. I wanted to know what one of their most expensive teas tasted like.
Upon opening the bag, I noticed a faint, fragrantly grassy smell. The tea leaves had yellowish undertones, that looked almost golden. The look and scent were very unique (in a beautiful way).
I brewed the tea at the recommended 175F degrees for 2-3 minutes and noticed immediately the water beginning to turn a yellow amber color. Before letting it come to a full brew, I poured myself a small cup. I always like to do this to test the flavors as they develop, as tea always seems to have an evolving taste.
