Tea Garden Herbs, New Teapots and Vienna Opera Ball Tea

I anxiously await the coming of the spring flower because we have had so much rain that the flowers when they finally come in May it should be quite a show. The delayed spring has given me plenty of time to get all my gardens cleaned out and do a little extra planning for my herb garden. I try to pack in as many culinary herbs as I can that not only are good for cooking but make delicious additions to my summer iced teas. I usually don’t make teas out of just herbs instead I throw them in my green or black iced tea to add extra flavor. Some of my favorites are lemon balm or lemon verbena and the many variations of mint like chocolate mint, and sages. Last year I found a pineapple sage and it was an incredible addition to tropical fruit teas. Next time you go to the Nursery to find some new plants smell them, maybe give them a little taste and think about how wonderful they would be in your tea. 

New Products
This week we introduced our new ceramic teapots with fitted stainless steel filters, Grimaldi 2 cup and San Remo 6 cup. These teapots are made so that the top of the teapot can be on while the filter is in the teapot and the filter has a very fine mesh which will let you brew even rooibos without debris in the bottom of your teacup. We are starting out with these teapots in just white but they are available in the same colors as our other teapots so let us know if would like one in another color.

Ooh pick me pick me! I would love to win some tea! I love your tea blends, I used to shop exclusively at another leading brand name tea purveyor until I discovered you guys. the Buckingham Palace and French Blends are DELISH! I'm sure the Vienna Opera Ball Tea is equally as fab!

I love anything with jasmine in it. My current favourite is jasmine green tea but I'd love to try a jasmine infused black tea. arlo51@hotmail.com

I just discovered your site this morning ... while surfing the net to find a replacement for my former source of loose teas [now absorbed by another company with less variety and higher prices]. After viewing many other sites, yours is best suited to my needs ... so expect future orders.
