Verdant Kitchen Ginger Turmeric Green Tea


 
I sprained my knee in Thailand- falling out of a boat and a tuk tuk in the same day.  And the swelling in my knee has been effecting my baker's cyst and my arthritis.  So, I read the turmeric is a natural way to reduce swelling.  I was super nervous to taste it, thinking it might taste like bark- lol!!!  But, I actually enjoyed it.
My chiropractor said if I enjoyed turmeric tea there probably wasn't much turmeric in the tea.  hahaha. 
I may try to make this myself, but in the mean time, I will enjoy this tea.  And I love the cute wooden scoop that came along with the tea.

from the website- So much has been written about the benefits of green tea, ginger and turmeric.  This combination is brimming with complex and beneficial antioxidants. The wellness benefits will have you try this great product, but it is the deep mellow flavor and aroma that will have you start and end each day with your new favorite tea.

Smuckers Pickwick Herbal Tea, Wild Raspberry Rose


I went with my friend for lunch and ran into another friend!!  I love that my town is the home of Smuckers!  I am proud of all that Smuckers does for our community.  I love the family.  And I can say that because I was their nanny for 2.5 years.  The family is terrific.  They do so much good in the area.

While waiting for my food I was wondering about the store and noticed tea.  I had no idea that Smuckers owned a tea company!  But yes, Smuckers is the distributor for Pickwick tea.


I enjoyed a cup of tea that afternoon.  I was able to get two cups out of the one bag.  The flavor was very nice.  I may try mixing it with mint and make it cold this summer.






My friend Melanie and I went to Simply Smuckers for lunch the other day.  We got these little lunch boxes of food. Not bad for less than $7.00!!!


Chicken feta burger was AMAZING!!!!  So yummy

Grindlewald tea mug


My great (or is it great great) grandparents on my dad's side are from Grindlewald Switzerland.  I had a good friend who went there in 2015 and she bought me tea and this fun mug. 

Can you hear the Swiss Cow bells ringing???
