Wanna Make Love To The Tea or Drink It? How About both?

You have to stop by this new cute little tea shop just opened in Dupont Circle – The Capital Teas.  It’s a fantastic little joint right north of  Q Street & Connecticut Avenue.  They carry a very good selection of loose-leaf teas and accessories like tea sets, tea pots, car cups, and French presses.

We were passing by their store and saw several people in there trying out their teas like the wine tasting experience. They had about 3 pots brewed for you to sample but you can walk around and smell each individual tea as well.  The intensity of the flavors and smells is unbelievable and it will be hard to decide since they all smell very good.  The blends tend to be a basic tea base with additional flavors like dried fruits and spices rather than just an exotic tea.  Most are a black tea base but they have a lot of white and green tea as well.

World Cup and Gay Parade took Dupont Circle by Storm

The Mini World Cup in Dupont Circle – USA 1 : England 1.

This was the highest World Cup fever I had ever seen among the Washingtonians since 1985 when I moved here in DC.  It is about time 🙂  Soccer has seemingly gripped a good portion of the nation’s attention. Thousands gathered to watch U.S. take on stiff ass Brits in FIFA World Cup  around the circle and the surrounding Bars and clubs.

The event was organized by Michael Lipin and friend Aaron DeNu, the same men who organized the massive snowball fight, also in Dupont Circle, during the February Blizzard of 2010. Dupont Festival, which aims to organize public outdoor activities in Dupont Circle, also played a key role in organizing the event. Read more of this post
