Zangvil Triple Launch Tea Party 20.11.2011 - One Week Away!

Zangvil Perfumed Tea

On 20.11.2011 (Which turns to be quite an auspicious number that adds up to 8 = infinity!) Ayala Moriel will be celebrating 3 magical creations:

Zangvil perfume, Zangvil tea and a new white chocolate bar (the flavour is still a secret!) that we've created in collaboration with CocoaNymph!

Come celebrate with us in this festive, winter-white afternoon tea party. To add to the magic, we will be serving the tea and the treats in beautiful earthenware hand crafted by artist Grace Lee of eikcam.

Launching Ayala Moriel's new perfume, Zangvil and matching perfumed tea that Ayala created and is based on a rare beauty: jasmine scented white tea, along with other delicious botanicals, to create a perfume in a cup!
Rachel Sawatzky & I will also finally share with you our 4th collaboration: a white chocolate bar! The flavour will be a surprise - any guesses? ;-)

Thank you Marilena!
I love that teacup too :-)
It is vintage, and was gifted to me by a very good friends on my birthday a couple of years ago.

I suspect that a "Zangvil" flavoured chocolate bar would be too obvious... so my guess as to what perfume inspired the new CocoaNymph chocolate bar would have to be "Fete d'hiver."

It seems appropriately seasonal. :)

Is it White Potion???? I hope so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My first guess would be Zangvil. It would be perfect, white chocolate, ginger, orange, jasmine tea.

If not I would have to guess White Potion. My fav truffle would but amazing in a bar. OMG could you imagine.

I'm going to guess a white chocolate bar inspired by Vetiver Racinettes!

Shannon, your Fete d'Hiver idea is amusing! Trying to think in my head how that would be done... Frankincense and orange with white chocolate? That would be far fetched and never done before, no doubt!

Was so great to have you at the Zangvil tea party yesterday :-)

Happy holiday season!

Shawn, I thought you like your custom perfume the best...!
You'll just have to come to Portobello West to experience it! And I hear Dancing Leaf will be there too!

Amy, you managed to top off Shannon's idea (Fete d'Hiver chocolate bar) with the Vetiver Racinettes concept. I can't begin to imagine how vetiver will taste in food... Wow, you two are very adventurous and inspiring!
Please come over for tea more often ;-)

Now that you all know the answer... It's time to reveal the winner!
Nikki guessed it correctly first and she gets a whole bar of White Potion all to herself!
