April 27 - May 3 The White, Green, Black, and Herb of Tea Tell 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?
I just love to drink tea, more importantly I like the ceremony behind tea. When I drink it in the morning or afternoon, there is something special about it. I can't really say that about any other beverage that I drink on a daily basis.
I love hosting tea parties for my girlfriends so that we can try different teas. In the fall, our favorite was Autumn Orange Spice and when I host my Jane Austen theme tea parties, I serve a black tea from the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, England.
In the spring, Strawberry Kiwi and Rose Tree Cottage Pasadena Rose (made from the roses off of the Pasadena Rose Parade floats) go quite well with scones. Of course, my ol' morning standard is Earl Grey.
I have lately been brewing some Lipton Green tea with Mandarin Orange flavor to have iced with my lunch. Quite yummy!
