The edge of summer is near, which means there will be many less days of vibrant sun. It also means the cool colors become warm and everything in trend turns to fall. The last few days of summer are being held tightly before they are lost in a long year of work. Before all the bright and bubbly colors of summer turn to darker versions of themselves. And, not that I don't love fall because it actually is my favorite season, I really enjoy the beauty of summer and how lively everything becomes in both worlds of fashion and food. Like days I get to prance around in my yellow mini skirt or bright purple polka dot romper. Even the moments I crave a large glass of iced tea while baking for hours in a very warm kitchen. All these summery vibes will soon change over for all things warmer and more snuggly.
The name of Harney and Sons Tea, Dancing Snowflake is a bit ironic when thinking about summer. But it actually perfectly mimics the beauty of both fashion and food with its bloomed essence. A fluffy yellow flower opens up to hot water and garnishes any glass teapot with sunny sophistication. I love this tea for August because it symbolizes a time when fashion and drink are at their peak in season. Right now the trends of clothes, shoes, accessories, and colors of summer are almost full-filled. We will soon see the life of fall come to fruition. We will see lines of people waiting inside cramped coffee shops defending the cold and awaiting their order of hot tea. We will see food and beverage brands marketing their best and new fall items with clove, cinnamon, or pumpkin spice. But for now, we will savor the last moments of summer with the Dancing Snowflake tea (don't mind the name too much).
