I love coffee, but there are times when its tea that hits the spot.
I've been a long time fan of green tea but when I got pregnant I wasn't allowed to drink it. So I started drinking various flavours of rooibos tea. Most generic grocery store brands are vanilla flavoured.
However if you go to St. Jacobs Farmers Market there's a little tea shop in the corner of one of the many buildings that sell the best variety of teas. Green teas, rooibos, earl grey, and so many more.
This past weekend we headed out to the farmers market to purchase some tea.

Kristen bought the Japanese Green tea and I bought two kind of rooibos
Pear & Belgium Chocolate.
Kristen keeps alternating between the green tea and the pear since he loves both flavours so much
Here's a pot of belguim choclate that I intend on enjoying today.
Oh just a sidenote...leaves can be used up to 3 times before discarding....neat eh?
And the longer it sits in the hot water the better your tea will taste.
How was your Easter weekend?
