1. An unusual cardboard box for mini Essie nail polish bottles. The nerd in me got a kick out of unfolding it and folding it back together. I know, I am easily amused.
2. Loose-leaf tea from Lupicia's fukubukuro. We got two boxes of these mystery sets, one with flavored black teas and one with green tea. Mr. Lilacmoon and I don't usually drink flavored teas, so we thought it would be an interesting way to try something different. And it was! It was like opening Christmas presents in January. I haven't tried all of them yet (it will be awhile) but I like the chestnut one a lot so far.
Speaking of tea, I can't wait to try this tea app, and I don't even have an iPhone (well, I use iPod Touch). Looks promising, doesn't it? It's great to see more people interested in tea (and apps for them!) because that means cafés and restaurants will start carrying more teas and brew them at the right temperatures. Hopefully.
Have a great weekend, my readers!
PS: iro iro means "various" in Japanese, one of my favorite words. I think I will use it more often here. :)
