Dance of the Sugar Plum Sencha

During the height of holiday shopping chaos, there are few greater indulgences than a cup of Le Palais Gourmet plum sencha tea, a soothing Japanese green tea, made without grinding the leaves, and blended with fragrant sweet plum ($38/3.5 oz). Which you will have earned after braving the hard-sell ambush that happens anytime you walk in the door of the shop on Cañon in Beverly Hills—a good argument for ordering online. But overeager sales people notwithstanding, this tea sanctuary offers some 200 teas along with beautiful accouterments, such as silver-plated tea strainers, Japanese tetsubins, and gorgeous washi paper-covered airtight canisters for storing tea. A perfect gift for the most important person on your holiday list: YOU!
