tea time...

over the weekend, dylan wanted to take me to a new cafe he had found downtown. he had tried the moroccan tea before and loved it; he said it was unlike any other tea he has had. he wanted me to try it. let me put this out there...i.hate.tea. i think it's awful. i want to like it, but just don't. to me, it tastes like a really, really diluted hot cup of something. i've tried leaving the tea bag in longer, i've tried adding milk, sugar, honey, and nothing works. so i was skeptical of this place.
 Barbarossa's Cafe-the place to be
we sat at a little table outside
 the server pouring our tea

it was a very cute little place. while i did not like the tea (still not a tea person, probably will never be), i'm sure we'll definitely be back for coffee at some point. dylan loves it there, so no doubt he will be back for more tea this week. it's made with all fresh leaves and brewed when you order it; no tea bags here.


anyway-it's canada day! which also means it's now july! holy geez, summer has gone fast. well, not just summer, the whole year so far. i can't wait to get out of the house today, walk around a festival and see fireworks tonight. AND i'm so freakin' excited to go to the cottage tomorrow!!!

this place looks SO cute!! i totally understand where you're coming from... whenever my mom and i go to alice's tea cup in ny, she orders COFFEE! (tea just simply isn't her cup of tea...) and i used to get SO mortified. but now i've just gotten used to it and understand now :-)
