Did you know that January was "National Hot Tea Month"?
This beautiful teacup with matching infuser & lid from TEAVANA, was one of my birthday gifts that month.
Thank you, Sisters!
I just LOVE how it makes having a single cup of tea such a special experience.
It says the Ume blossom on the cup is the beloved symbol of hope in Asian art. Where there is still snow on the ground, the Ume blossom first blooms, signifying the coming Spring. Hurry Up!!!
I was told that if you have a smart phone,
I have a *dumb phone*...

What will they think of next?
One recent study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that substances in tea may even promote weight loss by increasing the amount of energy spent by the body. The theory is that green tea, because of the catechin (pronounced "cat E kins") content, has thermogenic properties that promote fat oxidation, may work together with other chemicals to increase weight loss.
I've been drinking hot tea all my life &
it sure ain't workin' here!!!
I just had a cup with a Hostess *Snowball*…haven’t had one of those in YEARS, but I saw the GREEN & had to get it for St. Patrick’s Day.
Aren't these cute???
Our FAVORITE tea!
You put some loose tea down inside the infuser then set it in the cup & pour boiling water over the tea leaves. When it is as dark as you like it, you remove the strainer...over the sink, to be safe & your hot tea is ready!
Okay, break time is over...back to getting out the GREEN for Cuisine Kathleen's party on the 13th!
Hope to see you there!
