Tea Time

28 August 2009
One of my favorite things is having morning tea with my neighbors, Marge and Lynette. We sit on the porch and enjoy a steaming cup, good conversation, and watch the beautiful Texas morning unfold. It i

s a soothing time for me, and something I really look forward to. I think my love of tea came from my Nanny, we had so many afternoon teas when I was a little girl and I treasure those memories. Anyway, tea time seems to do my soul good.

I was very excited when I was asked to review some samples of Dilmah Tea. I had never heard of it before and was very intrigued by it. So, I went over to read The Dilmah Story and explore their website. I was impressed!

What really stood out to me was the fact that it's ethical tea, all grown, picked, and packaged in the same place. This is a rare thing, something I wish more companies did. Knowing that the growers are a

How was the tea? I am glad you asked. It is very good. The flavor is smooth and fresh. Their was no bitterness or harsh aftertaste like you find with some hot teas. We tried the Ceylon Supreme and the Green Tea with Ginger. Lynette liked that the green tea helped soothe her nauseated tummy. We did have to play with steeping times and the amount of bags needed per teapot, but you have to do that with ever new tea you try. One cup, one bag and this makes a great spot of tea. I highly recommend this tasty tea.

Reading this post I got stuck on the Texas mornings part. Why? Because I have to go see the in-laws next weekend. I think I could really like Texas, especially the picture you paint of it, but never. Nope, too stressful. Added to that stress, the 13 hour drive with a 2 yr old and a 9 mo. old. Sigh. Can I just stay with you and send them off on their own? hee hee
