Gracious Hospitality.





April 27 - May 3
The White, Green, Black, and Herb of Tea

Tell about your favorite tea. How do you prepare it and serve it? Milk and sugar? Plain? What are some of your best memories of serving or sipping on this tea? Share a picture if you can. Tell the health benefits of the tea(s) you prefer. Where do you purchase your tea? Is there someplace you enjoying purchasing tea from? Who from and where?

So that is the theme for this week. Now the only tea I drink (apart from the generic kind )is this Camomile, Vanilla and Honey. It is widely available in shops here in the U.K. I drink it neat, by that I mean with no milk, or sugar. I really like this it has a great calming, soothing effect and I think it helps me sleep. It's very relaxing if you've had a stressful day. Give it a try! Check it out here.

Various flavors of oolong have been big with me over the winter, but I have recently discovered white tea, and my favorite lately is White Grapefruit from Adagio Teas. It's cold and rainy here today, so maybe I'll brew some up when I get home from work! :-)

Have a great weekend!

White grapefruit tea sounds intersting. Hope you have a good weekend too Lezlie.

I love to blend flavors and have used Tazo calm (primarily chamomile) with and Adagio blend of vanilla and honey, and it is delicious!!!

I love the package and the tea sounds good. I also find tea very relaxing. I like the way you say you drink it neat. I have never heard that term before. I have mine with a little milk.

I also love chamomile --- and it sounds delightful with honey AND vanilla. I've tried it with honey, but the vanilla is a new idea. Sounds perfect!

Thanks for sharing!

Neat! I like knowing the correct terminology. ;>

So this is the one to look for if one wishes to calm the nerves...
