Sidamo Coffee and Tea--A Review

My sister and I enjoyed a wonderful coffee shop in Fulton Maryland called Sidamo Coffee And Tea. Their main store is in Washington, DC near Union Station.

 My sister had a cup of their coffee, freshly roasted and ground on the premises daily and I had a cup of Provence Rooibos which was truly a sublime and transporting experience.  I had enjoyed Rooibos tea, which, by the way, is not a true tea, but a tisane made of the leaves of the red bush tree from South Africa, but had never heard of or tasted Provence Rooibos which is made with the addition of roses, lavender, and currents.  The aroma alone is worth the purchase and transports you immediately to sunny French fields freshly in bloom.

I will definitely have Provence Rooibos on hand from now on.  It is well worth the buying.

My dh likes black tea as well. There is a store in MD that sells exceptional black tea. When I get there w/ my sister, hopefully some time in the near future, I'll blog about that.

And, T, this coffee shop is in the same spot as another one that, apparently went out of business, so maybe you knew that one.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
