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.

Has anyone seen the cute little girl tea party things at the Pottery Barn?

While these things are on the pricey side these are very giftable things to give & save as keepsakes for a lifetime!

they carry 3 tea sets porcelain, silver, or a fun stakable~
cake stands for the tea table

a cute white tea cart
tea party aprons (these can be personalized!)

Just adorable!

Starbucks buys Teavana!

For about $620 million Starbucks buys Teavana Holdings, Inc.

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!

Chai to go!

Chai in an instant~as seen in the Chicago Tribune Newspaper~ New chai tea blends on the market of interest:

Tipu's Chai Now (trio)All that is needed is boiling water & your fav. dairy product~ called the sweet & spicy

The Simple Life is to stir in a tsp. of black tea spice mix into milk or water~

Sounds easy!

Their taste testers rated: Sweet & Spicy as the best!

Try them if you see them & let us know what you think~
