You Suit Me To A Tea…Yes, Yes You Do!

Loving the turquoise and orange today! Trying out some different color schemes for a tea party next week. These are the colors I have to work with and I couldn’t be happier!

Turquoise and Peach remind me of the ocean and coral. They just make me smile!

The menu is set and I’m working on the invitations today. Obviously it is a Bridal Tea. My favorite kind. I also wanted to tell you about an amazing tea I had.

Peach Fresh Brew Iced Tea Image result for peach tea     This Peach Iced Tea with a peach sliced up in it is delicious!  I’ve been doing more cold brewing this month since the heat here is somewhere between WTF and OMG!  This one comes in larger bags too so it’s easy to whip up a pitcher.

The next one I tried with great success was cold brewing Ahmad Tea’s Lemon Ginger. It is a perfect drink in this heat and it’s good for you too! Do you switch up your hot tea to more cold teas in summer? What are some you have tried?

   I usually cold brew mine in a quart mason jar. This one was so good!

Today is Corneal check up day. I’m a bit anxious, but it’s a reasonable amount of anxiety. So today is going to be a great day and any news I get will be positive and reassuring!

The Tea Fairy Finally Shows Up!

The first thing I saw was this little gem from Ahmad Tea of London. This is the Lemon & Ginger Tea. The ingredients listed are Ginger, Lemongrass, Apple and White Hibiscus with some Quince and Lemon Peel. On opening the packet, there was a subtle aroma of lemon and ginger. Now my nose is a bit stuffy this week, so it can not be relied on right now.

So I let it steep for the 4 minutes and it was this lovely pale color. The taste was a tiny little explosion of ginger and lemon on my tongue!  I really enjoyed it. This is one I will definitely be getting again.

Here is a shot of all the goodies the Tea Fairy brought with her. My favorite Harney & Sons Earl Grey and my Tazo Zen and Passion and Green Ginger.Along with some Italian Macaroons.

This is last night when I was researching a new gun and having tea and the next thing I knew all of those macaroons were gone! Now in my own defense they were each smaller than an oreo and there were only 6! They were so good I almost wept as I savored each and every one.

Yes, I’m aware Prysa that I was supposed to share at Book Club/Coven Meeting, but I am not a saint and I wanted them all. And I am very grateful for them and I want to say Thank you to that wicked little tea fairy!

 

Much Love and Tea   xxPatricia
