Tea Things Tuesday

TEA THINGS TUESDAY
Hosted by: Kim at http://shabbypinkandpretty.blogspot.com
Thank you Kim!

So, today really is going to be a tea things Tuesday.

We are going to take our Tevana 34 oz cylinder glass tea maker and...

MAKE SOME TEA!!!!

Start with a warmed up Tevana 34 oz cylinder glass tea maker and...




add some Casablanca Herbal blend from the Tea Table. Now I have to tell you I find this stuff rather addictive, it's just plain GOOD!




add your boiling water...



mayhaps a little sugar...



lid goes back on and it filters through the mesh as you pour. It's so pretty! I love the taste, very sweet even without the sugar, it has all kinds of goodies in it, apples, strawberries, kiwi.... decaf, so no actual tea. ummmm YUMMY!

Also sharing this tea canister I found for $3.00 while out thrifting one day. It still had the 40 sealed tea bags in it, ya, those had to go. Can't decide whether to put tea in it or cookies or such.



Happy Tea Things Tuesday!!!

Hi Jocelyn,
The tea is from The Tea Table. They are wonderful to deal with and have an excellent selection of tea at a reasonable price. Their web site is http://www.theteatable.com. They have a lot of wonderful teas available!

What a great way to make tea! Sounds absolutely delish! And I love your tea canister...we should put our teas into pretty containers, rather than hiding them away in the cupboard...very nice!

Have a wonderful Tea Things Tuesday!

What a unique tea maker. I've never tried using something like that before. I should get myself one of those so I can brew up some yummy iced teas in the summer time.

Thanks for sharing a little "how to" today and also for showing your pretty tea canister. Such a pretty way to store teas.

That looked so good I had to go make me a cuppa tea. It's cold here so I had mine hot. Hugs

Yum....I will take a glass. I have never seen a maker like this...very interesting!

I found my hot tea maker out in the garage and brought it in today. John was trying to put it in the yard sale this summer. I told him he couldn't do that. What was he thinking???

It's very cold here and my tea is keeping me warm. Hugs

This tea looks so good! I also like tea (or herbal infusions) that contain fruit. Have a great weekend!

Love the tea cannister and the tea steeper from Teavana! I love Teavana's teas! I think I've done business with The Tea Table before...just not sure.
