Dreamland Tea house removable kettle









I could not believe that this set was only $11.05 and free shipping.  It is so cute.

It comes from China, I think that is why it is so inexpensive.  It also does not come boxed.  But, thankfully it comes with instructions.




This one is super cute and I really want to finish it in one evening, but Earl Grey keeps sitting on the pieces, making it hard to get it completed.


The actual "shop" part of the cafe is the mug itself, which is clever...and it comes out and it also free standing.



There are lots of extras with this one.  2 people, a cafe cart and the covered umbrella table.


My little collection, is not so little any more.

Tea Drops, Citrus Ginger



Ingredients: organic raw cane sugar, organic dried orange peel, organic dried ginger, organic dried spearmint, organic orange extract, organic lemon extract


Enjoying my birthday mug with this instant tea.  You put the tea drop in the mug, add hot water and go.  I stir it at first and then not again.  I let the sediment stay at the bottom of the mug and then add more hot water and I can get two cups of tea out of one Tea Drop. 


This instant citrus ginger tea would get a 5 out of 5 if there was not sugar in it.  I wish they made some Tea Drops without sugar.  I like my tea plain, no sugar.  But, there is no denying this tea is good.  I like the subtle citrus notes with the kick of ginger.  I am a fan.

Tea inspired gift bag idea


I went on a ladies retreat in March in Tennessee.  I only knew 2 of the gals when we left Ohio, but I ended up making lots of friends by the end of the weekend.

We rented a big house on the lake- talked about Jesus, worshiped, ate, talked, laughed and relaxed



Our "speaker" was David Paul Tripp- I highly recommend him as a good leader and speaker.  Looking to be inspired in your daily walk with God, check him out!!



In doing this retreat we were all supposed to bring something to share with the other 16 ladies on the trip.  That way we would all go away with a great goodie bag.

Well, I wanted my item to be tea related, of course.  So, I spent some time on line and decided to give a bag with loose tea and a steeper in it...then I saw these adorable little bowls that the steeper could sit in so that you did not get tea all over the place between cups of tea...so, I bought those too.

If you ever have a need to give a little something to a group of people, let me recommend this idea.  It was not too pricey, I think less than $3 a person, but I sis already have the Tea Forte tea packets.









Look at all the fun bags ready to be handed out.....



People were super creative with what they gave.
