Starbucks, the coffee giant, has this and that on its menu for tea- but rumor has it that Starbucks may sell Darjeeling in the nearest of futures!(this is according to the Tea Council of the United States)

How's that for something new? Will keep you posted on this.

Extreme weather conditions have hampered the growth and cultivation of Pu-erh/ loong Chen tea in China. Because the weather has been harsh there is less tea and that has resulted in a 50% increase in price.

If you have visited any Cost Plus World Market- I don't need to tell you the pretty tea pots, tea cups, tea sets, and teas and flowering posies that are available there! They are reasonably priced and the store even makes up gift baskets on request or you can make your own!

Fabulous for Christmas!

*I have no affiliation with this store in any way-just letting our tea lovers when I see things available!

Happy tea shopping

Oh dear! Confusion on the horizon!

TEA is an abbreviation that is often used for the word triethanolamine! (as one can see the tea is in all caps!)

When one sees this on a cosmetics label -this is not the good kind of tea! It is a chemical additive found in cosmetics like sunscreens, lotions, moisturizers, foundations and haircolors! TEA is also used as a fragrance ingredient.

This is a known carcinogen and can be toxic to skin, respiratory systems, and immune systems.

Please do however, use cosmetics that contain real tea.

Be an informed consumer and always read labels-there is very loose or hardly nonexistant regulations on the cosmetic industry!

Look for organic cosmetics there you will likely find products that contain real tea (no caps!)

Mail order Houses like Signals & Linda Anderson have many tea related items for sale for Christmas gifts both are reachable by on-line and are their sites are their names.

Signals carries cute tea pots and tea cups w/words for two examples, and Linda Anderson has tea towels, Celtic tea pots, funny "tea towels w/attitude", and tea pot silhouette chalkboards! Funny, gift-worthy!

*I have no affilitation with either of these business and am not a paid endorser, just sharing tea gifts w/readers!

There's tea everywhere!

January is flu season and tea will help boost up your antioxidant levels. It helps protect and when the flu has set in-tea helps to minimize symptoms and hydrate. Looking for an inexpensive gift for flu season? Make a small gift basket for a friend that contains green teas & honey & soup and a mug!

Very lovely and a gift of cheer that would make anyone feel better!

A tea horoscope for me!
On Jan. 24,2012 this horoscope ran in my newspaper that I had to share it!

Today is a seven. Focus on home & family warms the hearth. It's good medicine-take as much as you can, with tea and company. Renew your spirit to go back out into the world again!

Wow! I think I'd give that horoscope a 10! Surrounding yourself with family, and friends and tea! What else could one need?
