Higgins & Burke Jasmine Tea

My friend Melanie got me this beautiful tea cup for Christmas.  I love it...it fits a lot of tea in it :)  I tried Higgins & Burke Jasmine Tea the other day at work.  It is good.  It is maybe not a favorite as far as Jasmine flavors go, but it is still very good.  I think that if you like green tea you will really like this, because I think it is stronger green tea.  I am not a huge green tea fan, I like the Jasmine flavor to be stronger than the green tea....if that makes sense.

Jasmine

An ancient tea blend of fragrant Jasmine flowers that are picked during the day and laid onto premium, pan-fired green tea leaves which absorb the scent as the blossoms open at dusk. The result is a fresh green character, floral aroma and intoxicating flavour that will captivate your senses.

Ingredients

Premium Hyson green tea, jasmine flowers.

TEALIGHTFUL Royal Tea

I may have blogged about this tea before, but here I go again....
I like this dark, rich, black tea.  I think if you like coffee, you may like this tea.  It is almost too "dark and rich" for me.  But, then I add the milk and I find it is perfect.  I used my new cup that I recieved as a Christmas gift from an attorney I use at work.
I like the big oversized mugs, because I can fill the cup of with tea and there is still enough room for milk...as you can even see if the photo that there is still a lot of room left in this travel mug. 

These are my new favorite cookies that I like to eat with my tea.  I got these cookies at Aldi's.  It is a spiced cookie.  So yummy!!!!

Tea Caddy

 
here is the tea caddy my dad made Robin for Christmas per my request.  let me know if you would like to order one.  they are really fun.  I made one row white tea bags, one row black tea bags, and so on.  my friend Melanie said she might use one for jewelry.  Dad originally made it to carry seed packets in, but as soon as I saw it, I knew I "needed" one for tea packets ;)  

Tea Forte tea pot and Cherry Cosmo

look at the fun Christmas gifts I received from my friend Robin.
 


 
Ingredients organic rosehips, organic hibiscus, organic apple pieces, organic raspberries, natural cherry flavor, other natural flavoring (berry)



it was so fun to use my tea pot at work today. 
The teapot kept the tea warm, plus it is super cute!!

I was not sure what I would think of the Cherry Cosmo...sometimes cherry tea can taste like cough syrup.  But not this one!!  I really like it.  I think it might be the hibiscus in the tea.  I am a fan of hibiscus.  Robin did a good job picking this tea out.
