Dear tea readers,

Here's a fun little gadget for tea~

A tea bag button! It is a little silicone button that sticks to your tea cup and then can wind the tea bag around it. This holds your tea bag in place!

They are available all over on-line and also at major retailers such as Bed,Bath and Beyond.

Cute!

Fashion What to wear to a high tea.......

as seen in the 2/14/16 edition of Chicago Tribune's Answer Angel by Ellen Warren a woman was in a quandry about what to wear to a tea.
the answer angel told her that long ago it was called:
"day dress with a hat" (From Britain). What that means is that one needs to wear a nice looking dress that you'd wear to a brunch or a lunch. And the hat is optional. Also many women will also wear a fancy blouse and fine dress slacks.

The Answer Angel also told the woman to even google Duchess Kate and see what she's wearing as she is setting trends in leaps and bounds!

If you get to go to a tea, enjoy and have fun with it hat and all!

Dear Tea Readers,

The brand Snapple has a couple of new teas~ (can be found in the tea aisles) They are called Straight Up Tea, each of the bottles are 18.5 ounces. And black tea is used except in the case of Red Bush & green tea in the Rooibus and Honey Green respectively.

These bottled teas claim no artificial anything! All natural ingredients. 3 levels of sweetness.

Sweet Tea at 180 calories & a whopping 44 g of sugar! (but it does get better)

Honey Green Tea at 90 calories & 21 g of sugar
S. African Rooibus 90 calories & 22 g of sugar
Sorta sweet at 90 calories & 21 g of sugar
Unsweetened at 0 calories & 0 g of sugar (the best choice)

At least we can see that some manufacturers are sort of listening~ better products for people.

*I have no affiliation with this brand. This post is for tea information only.

Watch your bottled teas for the sugar content.

**Also this brand has a current buy one get one free coupon in the weekend newspapers.

Dear Tea Drinkers,

Pepsico Brand has come out with new Ready to Drink(RTD) teas in cans.

They will be mixing their popular Brisk Tea with Yerba Mate'. It will be called Brisk Mate'.

Sounds like an exciting new product, just watch the sugars on this.

I have no affiliation with this brand or product, nor am I endorsing it. This post for reader enjoyment.

Dear Tea Readers,

I'll be going shortly to a tea room for lunch with my daughter, the upcoming holidays not only provide together time with my immediate family, but also fun and exciting holiday themed activities.

Is anyone going to a tea room or having holiday experiences with high tea or giving the gift of tea?

Dear Tea Readers,

Over indulgence, and other holiday fun leaves our tummy's in rumbles.

Try this:

Have a cup/mug full of chamomile tea, yes! The calming properties of chamomile calms and chases away inflammation in the tummy. Chamomile is also great for sleep as well. I'd use tea instead of drugs if it's at all possible.


*Please consult w/physician for advice on tea drinking, for allergy or possible prescription interaction.

Dear Tea Readers,

Did you know that you can make wine from tea???

It takes several months to make (once mixed it needs to be left alone in a cool dark place for a couple of months)

with only a few ingredients: 4 pints of cold tea, 2# of granulated sugar, 1/2# of raisins, and 2 lemons!

Would you try it?
