Tea Talk

I missed a couple of weeks on the Tea time blog a thon over at "Gracious Hospitality"...but..trying to keep up with hosting the farmgirl blog a thon, as well as everyday life..I sort of fell behind.So sorry gals.

This week's theme is pretty easy though... so I decided to join back in on "trying" to keep up.

April 27 - May 3

The White, Green, Black, and Herb of TeaTell about your favorite tea. How do you prepare it and serve it? Milk and sugar? Plain? What are some of your best memories of serving or sipping on this tea? Share a picture if you can. Tell the health benefits of the tea(s) you prefer. Where do you purchase your tea? Is there someplace you enjoying purchasing tea from? Who from and where?
My favorite tea is:

Numi Tea: Rainforest Green...Mate Lemon Myrtle Green Tea

This infusion of Yerba Mate with Australian rainforests' Lemon Myrtle and China's Chun Mee green tea has a delightful lemon taste. It is an energizing blend that uplifts the senses.

You can find it for only $5.99 a box here:

I like it with a bit of tupelo honey added to it.
I simply zap it in a mug of water in my microwave for 1 minute..then let it set.
(yeah..I know..probably not the way to have a "proper cup of tea" still tastes wonderful!)

I like sassafras tea. That's my favorite!!

Thank you for your lovely comments on the blog and for accepting my goofy pictures (and odd sense of humor) to your lovely magazine. I am blown away by it all. In fact, the husband and I toasted to it this evening!!

Blessings and thanks!

Your tea sounds totally yummy! I enjoy NUMI teas. There is a supermarket in town that serves them at their deli --- and I enjoy sipping while I shop. It's quite a treat!

"Proper" is terribly subjective don'tcha know! Here's another that I've not heard of. So many new teas on my list of teas to try these days that it it's incredible. Thank you!
