Tealightful Vanilla Caramel Chai

This morning I felt like a little spice in my tea.  I chose Vanilla Caramel Chai. With its gorgeous dark golden red color, this black tea has the chai spices you’d expect — cinnamon, ginger, cloves, cardamom, star anise, and peppercorns.  My favorite part of this chai is the addition of caramel and vanilla.  For me, these two additions mellow out the chai just a bit.

Without adding anything to it, this tea has a definite chai bite.  I can definitely taste the ginger and the clove.  Since I’m not a big fan of anise, it’s lovely that this blend captures its essence without being too strong. If you need to be warmed on a cold day, this is the tea to choose.

To make it a more traditional chai, consider adding a little milk and perhaps one of our caramel honey sticks.  Mmmmm…  Easing into a Sunday.

Health and abundant happiness…

 

Tealightful Lemon Ginger Green review

I’m sorry; I’m not one of those people who can drink hot tea during hot weather.  At least I can’t unless I’m in air conditioned space most of the time. That describes me pretty well during the late days of summer in Florida.  It was on one of these days I tried this tea.

I love lemon and am coming to love the zing of ginger in hot tea as well.  This green tea blend is a great balance of just enough lemon for that sweet/tart lemon flavor complemented by that ginger “zing”.  It is not too grassy in taste, light in color with a fragrance I find quite calming.  I love to open the bag and inhale deeply.

A friend who loves this tea suggested to me it would probably be quite refreshing iced.  You can check that out for yourself.  Personally, I’m enjoying the indulgent color, aroma, taste, and centering of having it hot. It may quite some time before I get around to trying it iced.

It’s Probably Fall Somewhere

Wow.  Where has this year gone?  It’s nearly October and our new catalog and Fall/Winter teas are being introduced — again.  Here in Florida, it’s still summer. Today, for instance, it’s at least 86 outside with a “feels like” temperature of 100.  But, it’s probably fall somewhere by now.

It seems I’ve missed a whole year at least with you, my tea fans.  I’ve had some personal ups and downs and things finally seems to be moving more to the “up” side again.  Be patient with me; I haven’t stopped selling or loving tea.

Check out our beautiful new catalog (see the link on the sidebar) and our amazing new blends.  I haven’t had a chance to try any myself yet.  My personal order will be going in very soon.  And, to keep you interested, I hear even more great teas and blends are coming for the holidays.  Stay tuned.  Look for tea reviews from me, here and on my Facebook page.

Thank you for hanging in there with me.  To my loyal customers who have continued to order, you are the best and have my sincere thanks and gratitude.

Health and abundant happiness…

 

Time for a deep breath

We’ve past Labor Day.  The kids are back in school.  Summer is officially over, at least according to the calendar.  It’s time to take a deep breath before the autumn and winter holiday rush starts.

It’s the perfect time for a tea tasting with your friends.

Tea is becoming quite popular again.  People just like you are discovering the health benefits, both from drinking a great beverage and from taking time to enjoy life, relax with family and friends.

I think because of tea’s gentle stimulation, having much less caffeine than coffee, tea is the perfect drink to share in total silence.  It’s great to sit with a friend, your hands wrapped around a warm cup of tea, inhaling the calming fragrance and sipping quietly, enjoying the moment.

So — before your life starts to get really crazy again with the holidays, take a moment, and share some tea with your friends.  I can help.  I’ll be right here, waiting for you, silently sipping my tea.
