Des Moines Marriot and Taylors of Harrogate!


I was staying in Des Moines for a work conference and  I was a bit worried that they would have some silly "cheap" tea.  BOY WAS I WRONG!!!! 
 

In my room I had a cute individual coffee/tea maker with Taylors Tea.  I just discovered this tea a few weeks ago when I had their Blackberry and Elderflower tea.  I was soo excited!  Their tea is very good!!!

I got to stay on the 18th floor.  Enjoying tea and looking at the city.

Breakfast!!!   I think I had at least 6 cups of tea  each day while at the Marriot.  YEAH good tea in the hotel!! 
Lemon & Orange Tea
Ancient Chinese blend with essences of fruits and flowers. Combination of black tea with the sweet, tangy flavor of citrus fruits. Use one tea bag. Add freshly boiled water and infuse for 3-5 minutes. Serve on its own or with sugar or honey.

snack with some Fairtrade Breakfast tea and Scottish Breakfast tea
