Happy Tea on Tuesday!
This morning I was outside watering my garden.
It is such a nice cool morning.
I almost forgot that today was tea day.
I thought I would share with you today a photo
of my basket of tea bags.
This is how I keep most of my tea bags organized.
I also have tins full of tea.
All of my tea cups,
sweetners, etc. are in one cabinet,
with this basket.
I used to have jars full of herbal tea mixes also.
But at the moment they are all empty.
Time to mix up some more.
I was looking through some of my books
for herbal tea recipes,
and found a surprising tea mix made with caraway seeds.
That is a new one for me.
I found it in
by Madalene Hill and Gwen Barclay
I don't know if I will grow my own caraway
because this is what it says...
"One would have to be a small elf
making tea for the elf family
in order to have enough seeds
from a few plants."
So, I guess it's off to the store I go,
to purchase some caraway seeds.
They give a recipe for
"A lesson learned from a memorable lunch
in Riga, Latvia, several years ago:
Steep 2 tablespoons of caraway seed
in 2 cups boiling water
for 7-10 minutes.
Strain, reheat if necessary,
and sweeten with your best honey."
Other good tea plants are...
jasmine (not carolina jessamine),
