The Simple Pleasures of Tea

There are few things as delightful as a freshly brewed pot of tea. 

Cool weather will be arriving soon, and that means time for me to stock up on tea and dried herbs for the teapot.  When restocking the tea chest, I add herbs for medicinal use, especially those that help with the sniffles, coughs and colds so common in the fall and winter; and I also add plenty of herbs and teas purely for enjoyment ... read more here.


  1. Talk about perfect timing! I am spending the afternoon today preparing for a Tea Party with a Purpose that my Girls in Action group is hosting tomorrow.


  2. My grand daughter is having an Alice in WOnderland birthday party and we are going to serve tea. What is a good tea for young girls?

  3. Mrs. C,
    I think Fairy Tale tea blend from Mountain Rose herbs would be great for a Alice in Wonderland tea party :) . Other options would be their Quiet Child blend if you think things might get a bit wild LOL! ... at our home we often make plain black tea and serve it with lots of milk or cream, and honey :) .
    Enjoy your tea party!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
