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!)

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?

I love World Market and often shop at the one near our house. If you join their online club, they keep track of what you spend and then sent you great coupons, like $10 off a $30 purchase.

I have a tea pot from there and I buy Republic of Tea there also.

Greg Mortensen has now agreed to pay $1 million dollars back to his Montreal charity!
This is to settle the accuisations that he used the non-profit to promote & buy copies of his book that provided him profit.

The Central Asia Institute spent some 3.96 million since 2006 to buy copies of The Cups of Tea.

With all of this talk about colorful tea pots and cups, I have to wonder how many of these items have lead paint. It would be hard to tell, especially for items made out of the country. Even Macy's at one time said that some of their dishware could have lead paint in them, and the only brand I was able to find that stated they do not use lead paint is Fiestaware.

I am personally leery to buy colorful teaware only because I drink a lot of tea, and I would not want to expose my tea to lead paint and then drink it. Does anyone know of legitamate companies that do not use lead paint in their crockery besides Fiestaware?

Dear Debbie,

Thank you so much for revisiting this subject matter. Every once in awhile it does come up & in this day and age we are concerned what can possibly go into our bodies-

Let me do some checking around to see what kind of answers I can come up for you. Also asking readers if you have heard or seen news regarding lead paint please let us know here.

The subject will be mentioned here and nothing in the forum is ever a closed subject. Thank you Debbie

Dear Debbie,
Did some checking around and did not actually find much complaints about the Brand Fiesta Ware. Homer Laughlin was notified that few people had questioned the lead content. They brnd currently tests at .02PPM for lead & cadmium~so not 100% but very close.

It is made in the USA so they are compelled to follow strcit guidelines set forth from FDA.

Most in the know claim that if any type of ware glaze is pitted,cracked, or disentregrated in any way it should not be used.

Fiesta Ware that predated 1986 did not have these standards & it is thought that 1960-1970's ware most likely contained none.

So I hope this helps a bit!

Thanks for the great questions.

This week the brand named Turkey Hill ran in our papers with a coupon for refrigerated gallons & half Gallon teas.(in current papaers expiration date of 11/30/12)


Don't forget also: check your grocer's "dented" cart or clearance table in back ~boxed tea & bottled tea items allways reduced~ (helps when making a gift basket)

Be aware that not all teas are alike~

Teas may be blended or mixed with other edible flowers, and or other teas,or other herbs. Reading labels is important if you are on specialized diets. Always ask your doctor if a particluar brand or type is ok for you.

This tea adding to Starbucks already Tazo Tea line will offer at least 100 loose leaf teas! They have about 300 stores already and they believe that the two tea brands are complimentary toward each other. Many cafe's however, only offer one or the other or both, they have not decided as of yet.


Good to know......

Ideas for tea items is endless:

Not only do people use old cracked cups (or mismatched) to make DIY craft projects~old tea pots can be used as well. They can become planters for small plants and given when one needs a quick gift for a sick person or teacher for example.

Tea pots that are similar in size shape or color can be used as decorative canisters for loose sugar or even cookies if the lid is tight.

I know of at least one person that used a tea warmer as her candle light for tables or when the lights went out! haha sweet idea right?

Your ideas can be endless with tea!

If you think of more let us know ASAP!

Hello Tea lovers..... in the March 2013 issue, HGTV magazine asks...When is the last time you cleaned....your tea kettle?

(writers Jessica Dodell-Feder and Kelly Tagore tool on everyday items and used their expertise and research to come up with good answers to their questions)

how often? they found that a kettle should be washed about every 4 to 5 uses.

They DO NOT recommend any kettle in the dishwasher!!!

You'll be cleaning the outside of the kettle~
the writers consulted Patrick Farrell, VP of merchandising for Teavana. He reccommended no steel wool or scouring pads they scratch.Wash the outside with warm soapy water and a sponge.

If you have hard water & you have deposits on the kettle it's ok to add vinegar to water and heat for 10-15 minutes.

Heat and rinse to remove any traces of vinegar.

Volia! Clean kettle!

page 29 HGTV Magazine to see the article.

Dear Angie:

Oh yes Teavana is a beautiful store. Their stylings and products packaging are quite beautiful!

Some of their products are quite pricey, however, these are very gift worthy.

Any store that encourages the art of tea and the health of tea in my book is a good one.

Thank you for sharing!

Have you tried Thai Iced Tea?


I heard that of late offered in many Thailand Restaurants was:
Cha-yen (iced tea)
This is classified as a fusion"

It made from black tea or Ceylon tea (brewed strong) condensed milk,sugar,and ice

*substitutions may be half n half for the condensed milk and powdered tea, which is a far cry from actual steeped & brewed tea!

But this tea sounds fun, and tasty, try it if you discover it on a menu somewhere!

Tea is always good. I enjoy the oolong and chai (a spicy tea I purchased last Christmas). I attended a bridal shower and the party favor was enough tea for a pot of tea. YUMMY.

My kids gave me two boxes of Twinings tea - a Christmas tea and a Winter Spice. They are both very mild - I always enjoyed Celestial Seasonings Sugar Plum Spice Tea, however, I was not able to find it this Christmas. I see it is available online though.

Thank you for the info on Twinings - I do enjoy their breakfast tea and Earl Gray.

Dear Angie, I must say that is a wonderfully thoughtful gift! Tea is wonderful during the holiday season.

Spice teas taste wonderful during the holidays. Tea companies are constantly changing/or adding to their tea lines. I'm glad what you like is at least available on-line for purchase. Sometimes, for whatever reason, the supermarket themselves change what they are selling. Could be available at another market?

Anyway, you're welcome for the information on Twinings tea. I hope that you'll enjoy your experience with that tea and if you do you're welcome to post anything tea related here!

Happy New Year!

Scented tea is an infusion method of petals,fruits, spices or oils into black or green tea. This has been going on since the Ming Dynasty 1368-1644

Sip yourself slim~ As reported in the March 2014 Issue of Family Circle magazine...Dr. Jeffrey Blumberg, a Tufts University professor of nutrition, stated that new research shows green tea may help people lose weight.

He tells readers to aim for two mugs of green tea per day that is *steeped for at least 3 minutes.

the combinations of the zero calories, caffeine and catechins it does speed up the metabolism.

*the longer that green tea seeps the higher content of antioxidants.


While some researchers do say that one would have to consume a lot more to see an actual weight loss from the drinking well it certainly won't hurt either.

<sigh> I do not like the taste of green tea. On these cold miserable wintry days, tea sure has been a comfort.

Dear Angie,

Have you tried to flavor the tea? Enhance with a drop of lemon or perhaps a drop of agave? honey?

I am doing an article on sweetening next week I shall try to include something about enhancing green tea. Perhaps try a blend with green tea in it?


Let me know if you try.
Thank you

Oprah Chai


Starbucks coffee giant owns Teavana tea and they have partnered with Oprah Winfrey to launch Oprah Chai.

It is a chai masala infused with cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and clove. All of the proceeds from sales will benefit youth education charities.

Good job! Buy chai support education that's smart tea!

I had no idea that Teavana was owned by Starbucks.

Dear Angie,

Most large major businesses often "acquire" other businesses to stay way on top of the heap. The Tea industry has long been up and coming, and it appears that many businesses want to have more than "one log on the fire" by aligning themselves with many facets of the drink industry.

Well established business that are acquired often keep their names due to the fact that they are quite known by the name and to change it would actually damage the brand.

Enjoy trying the new Oprah Chai and let us know how you liked it~

What is Guayusa tea? It is pronounced (guy-use-a)
It is from the tree (similar to an evergreen here) called LLex Guayusa. It is native to the rainforest in the upper Amazon.

The leaves of this tree contain a large amount of caffeine; it is prepared as a tea and is used as a stimulant.

I've been very disappointed in the tea selections at some of the supermarkets. At one time, the selection in all the stores was really good but some of them have cut back. I enjoy Luzianne Tea but other than the Ice Tea bags my stores have not been carrying the brand. I switched to Tetley but I do like Red Rose, Bigalow and Twinings. Celestial is the herbal tea which I use during the winter.

Have you ever ordered tea online? I was in one of the malls yesterday and Teavanna has a shop there.
