I have fallen in love with DAVIDs TEA. They have a huge range of flavours, from the very traditional like matchas and herbals to modern takes like Caramel Corn and Cocomint Cream. Every flavour is so well balanced and tastes genuine. I have one of their Steepers and love the process of making tea with it, but they also sell travel mugs with built in strainers and tea filters. The tea filters are disposable tea bags with an open top that you can fill with whatever loose tea you like, and then close by pulling the drawstring. So cute! They’ve made loose tea easy to make and enjoy anywhere.

I wanted to create a light and casual layout for these photos, but didn’t have an idea about what colours I wanted to use. Sitting on my desk was Studio Calico’s Park Ave. Card Kit that I had ordered. I decided to play with it and see what I could come up with. I added in a few items from my stash, but most of the items are from that one kit.
