Tea and cookies – a perfect afternoon snack and break.

21 Days of Tea is over.

  • I haven’t drunk all the tea in my tea drawer.
  • I haven’t mastered the art of having tea every afternoon.
  • I still don’t care for Earl Grey tea.

But I have learned a few things.

  • Drinking hot tea in the morning is a pleasant ritual.
  • Drinking a glass of iced Tangerine Orange Sweet Zinger at night is an acceptable substitute for dessert.
  • It is okay to not finish the contents of the box or tin, if I don’t like it.
  • Loose tea seems to brew up a tastier cup of tea. I need to try more of these once I finish up what’s in my drawer.

So what’s next?

  • I really enjoyed sewing and filling these tea bags. When I get more loose tea, I will do the same.

    I will continue drinking the contents of my tea drawer.

  • If I don’t like the tea, I will get rid of it.
  • I will try some loose leaf teas.
  • I will finish up my tea crafts like the sharpie art on my teacup, quilled teacup, and so on. I will link them here when they are done.

Below are the results of my tea drinking experience.

Best Hot Teas

  1. English Breakfast (always makes me feel “ahhhhh” relaxed) and Honey Vanilla Chai (most delighted my senses) – tied! I knew that English Breakfast would win. This chai was a surprise.
  2. Sweet & Spicy
  3. Russian Morning #24
  4. Peppermint
  5. Green Moroccan Mint

Best Iced Tea

Tangerine Orange Sweet Zinger Ice

I think this is the cutest container of tea. It is a little over 3.5 inches tall,but holds 10 ounces of drink.

Tea Desserts . . . The frosted Earl Grey cookies are my favourite. 

Tea Crafts . . . I can’t pick a favourite. Whichever one I am using is my favourite.

I think this craft was the most "eye' appealing. It was certainly the most fun.
