TEA FORTE Garden Harvest White single steeps


 
Single Steeps
garden harvest white tea single steeps
12-15 servings with three each of the following: Peach Rhubarb Preserve, Tangerine Rosemary, Tupelo Honey Fig, White Cinnamon Sage, Wild Apple Ginger
$12.00
 
I received this sampler set from Tea Forte.  I am a fan of this tea.  My favorite is the  Peach Rhubarb, then Wild Apple Ginger, then Tangerine Rosemary, then White Cinnamon Sage, and lastly Tupelo Honey Fig.  These single steepers are great.  I can get two cups out of one single serving.  The samplers are a great way to try teas that you are unsure of.  Once you try it in a small sampler, if you like it you can purchase more next time in larger quantities!
 
 
 
 
Peach Rhubarb Preserve 
Peach Rhubarb Preserve { White Tea }
    This organic rare white tea brews up all the bounty of a summer harvest. Savory rhubarb and the sweet taste of lush peaches are blended with fragrant, floral hibiscus. This cup sings with delight. Refreshing iced.
 
 
 
 
 
Wild Apple Ginger 
Wild Apple Ginger { White Tea }
    This beautiful marriage of garden and cup begins with the delicate flavor of organic rare white tea. The tingle of spicy ginger complements the sweet taste of a crisp apple for a deliciously delightful cup.
 
 
 
Tangerine Rosemary

Smooth and sublime, this organic rare white tea is enlivened with crisp apples and the flavor of sun-sweet tangerines. An alluring addition of fragrant rosemary adds to this savory garden cup. Refreshing iced!

This refined organic rare white tea is heightened with the zing of cassia cinnamon and an undertone of wispy sage. Balanced with the roasted taste of South African Cape honeybush for an exceptionally crafted cup.

A summer medley of organic rare tea, delicious sweet figs and the taste of tupelo honey. Cooling peppermint and sunny citrus join in perfect harmony for a most fragrant cup.
 

New "Tea" T-shirt


I went to a claims conference and one of the claims adjusting firms had this "logo".  I was so excited that I asked them for a shirt.  Bold, huh?  Well they sent me one in the mail this week.  I can not wait to wear my new shirt!

SMITH Jasmine Silver Tip

 
My friend Robin gave me this yummy Jasmine Silver Tip tea to try.  I have discovered that Jasmine is my new favorite flavor. I enjoyed this cup of tea....A LOT!  This is a really good tea.  I highly recommend this Jasmine tea.
 
Smith's also makes a Jasmine Pearl Tea that is divine. I will be blogging about that one soon too.  It is not only art to look at, but amazing tasting.
 
 But, for now, I encourage you to try Jasmine Silver tip tea!
 
 
 
About this Tea
Delicate, tender green tea leaves from China’s Fujian Province are harvested each May and steam-fired to maintain their flavor - then placed amid just- picked jasmine buds, which open slowly to share their fragrance. Many call it the perfect marriage.
Ingredients
China full leaf green tea scented with jasmine blossoms.
Preparation
For best flavor, bring freshly drawn filtered water to 190 degrees. Steep three minutes. Play a spot of bridge or mahjong to help pass the time.


Sweetness of kids drinking tea









TAZO Passion tea...

I love my Passion Tea from Starbucks

 
I took my passion tea bags and experimented with making iced tea my self.  The first time I made the tea I only used 3 tea bags, the next time I made it, I used 4 tea bags and it was better .:)

 
An exuberant herbal infusion of hibiscus, orange peel, rose hips & passion fruit flavors.
Tasting Notes...Juicy berry, wine-like, earthy.

When I put the 4 tea bags in the gallon pitcher I put it in the frig over night. Then the next morning it was all set to go.  I do not add sugar, but I am sure with sugar some may like it even better.  I like it a lot, no, it is not like Starbucks, but that is because I don't add the sugar.  It is a great refreshing treat though!  I go through a gallon pitcher in two days. :) so, much cheaper, and healthier than Starbucks.

 
I took the boys some tea to try.  They were not a fan.  I think that if it I had added sugar they would have liked it.  But, I don't think that their mother would have liked that right before bedtime.
