Shutterfly free glass


Enjoying some passion iced tea in my new free Shutterfly glass.  All I did was pay the $6.00 shipping.  It is fun to have it engraved with my name on it.

Traveling tea- give me a call!!!



I'm hoping to take my tea on the road!!!!  Electricity not needed!!!

I have my own burner to heat the water.....

a tea pot that can sit on the heat.  And the tea pot folds down to lay almost completely flat.


How cool is that!!!  Pretty compact.

Has a metal bottom.
I've got my matching plastic cups




When I was in Africa in 2006 we were given tea - ceremonial tea style.  It was really neat.  Then when I was in Thailand in 2016 I met a missionary/International Worker, who said that her daughter did these teas with friends and also shared the gospel.  I LOVED THE IDEA!!!!
 
You first have Tea is as bitter as death, then strong as love, then sweet as life
It makes a great connection to life with out God is bitter as death, then God loved us so much he died for us, and now we have life in him and it is sweet
 
I hope to take this to my Sunday School class, show my friends, maybe my ESL class.  It is a neat ceremony, plus the illustration with the tea is memorable.

Tea ceremony in Africa
 
I also figure I can take the tea pot (with electricity- because I have a travel electircal burner too) to friends houses and teach them about tea.  I could bring over black tea, green tea, white tea, herbal tea, Oolong tea, etc and show the difference between the teas and how the water temperature and steeping times do matter!  Excited about traveling with my tea!

Honk Kong Airport Iced Milk Tea


Traveling home from a mission trip to Thailand we stopped off in the Hong Kong Airport.

Wish I had more time to explore outside!!!



 

Iced Milk Tea in Hong Kong, I had no idea what $38.00 was in Hong Kong, but I was hungry/thirsty.  I think it figured out to around $6.00.  I bought a black tea ice drink and a green tea smoothie and my credit card bill when I got home was $15.93- YIKES!!!  That is crazy, had I known the exchange rate I would have never bought it! Oh well, live and learn and enjoy the $6.00 drink!!!

Thai massage with tea



http://springfieldresort.com/village/facilities.html

While in Thailand I had a free morning.  I had won $100.00 at work for my 12 year anniversary.  I decided to splurge and have a massage!!!!!!


When I got there, they gave me a cold cloth and some really yummy tea!!!  I tried to figure out what tea it was but I did not understand what they were saying. It was so good and refreshing!!





After my massage they brought me another tea.  This was a ginger tea with fresh pineapple in it.  As I drank the tea I could use the tooth pick and eat the fresh pineapple. It was really a neat way to have the tea. It was a little gingery for me, but I liked it.

They let me walk to the top of the building to enjoy my tea and the view.  I took my tea and sat up there and soaked in the surroundings.
