Orrville Relay for Life Tea party, 12th annual

This was the 12th annual relay for life tea party- this was my mom's 11th time there!!!  This was my second.  I am a HUGE fan!!!



The menu- my mom helped set up the original menu.  They now also have a cookbook with the recipes in it.
I took a neighboring tea cup off a table, I like this purple one better than the one that was on the table in front of me.  Lol!  All the little girls got a special tea cup that they got to take home.  How fun is that, I am glad I did not switch for one of those tea cups.

Me, my Aunt Joyce, friend Bonnie, and my mom

We had 10-12 teas to pick from and then they brought each table a tea pot of hot water.

They also brought around scones for us to eat while we waited on our table to be called.





for the kids...




This is my Aunt Joyce's recipe.  I totally love this bread!!!


I don't like cherries, but these coconut bars were really good!!!

three kinds of scones...

These were delicious!

This was something they added this year, and I really liked it.

I have had this salad many times, but I have to say that I love that everything was chopped so finely.  It made the salad much better and tastes blended better.

Can you believe only $10 for all this food!!!!!!  plus, you could get seconds :)

My lovely mom!!!!!

Smith Masala Chai No.33


While visiting my sister in Vancouver, I raided her pantry.  And found some Smith Masala Chai. I am a fan- so I made myself a delicious cup!

 
 
Assam teas, ginger, cassia, black peppercorns, cardamom, cloves, pink peppercorns, and natural flavors.
 

I wish you could smell the spices. they are so rich and wonderful!

after the water comes to a boil, I steep the black chai tea for 5 minutes

then adding to my cup.  Then with all chai I add milk and sugar to complete the perfect cup of tea

Cold brew with lai fufu German tea- Myrte Ingwer (Myrtle ginger)


Long day at work, and I need a lot of cold brew to get me through the day.  Because it is cold brew you can let the loose leaf tea hang out in the water all day and it does not get bitter.
 
 
 
 
 

 
I put this screen/netting over the opening, so I can pour out the water and the loose tea does not get out.  I think it works great

I bought this ginger tea when I was in Muich from a tea shop. The lady spoke very little English, but I l just loved her and her shop.  She helped me buy this tea.
 
 
2 TBS per 1/2 gallon of water

Myrte Ingwer (Myrtle ginger)



Works perfect to pour into my cup and I have cold brew tea all day long. I can even add more water and I still get the same great taste!
