I was recently in Porto and had the pleasure to go for a 5 o’clock with Thuy Tien from MÙI-Gourmet/ MÙI- Concept shop in Porto. (Click here to check a previous post with an interview with Thuy Tien.)
As soon as I entered the shop I was welcomed by Yuko, who still remembered me from our visit to Porto last August. Yuko gave me a bit of their amazing Keiko Green Tea Chocolate and gave us a preview taste of a new Tea that will be launched soon as part of the Mùi Concept Christmas Teas. I won’t spoil the surprise but I can tell you that will be a very traditional Portuguese flavour in a cup of Tea. Stay tuned as we will post more information about this new Tea.
Suddenly, Thuy entered the shops with a huge smile and a box of homemade Matcha scones. Thuy is an inspirational person and we spoke about Tea, trip, recipes, flavours and business while indulging ourselves with the amazing scones.
Thuy also gave me a taste of Vietname Lotus Tea, a rare green Tea flavoured with the scent of Lotus. The tea is made by allowing the green tea to absorb the flower’s natural scent. This Tea has a delicate fragrance and a floral sweetness aftertaste.
If you’re ever in Porto we highly recommend a visit to this shop where you will find not only fantastic and unique Teas but also a great variety of Tea accessories.
Happy Tea Break.
