There’s nothing more therapeutic than a good cup of hot tea. I’m a lipton girl, I use tea bags. This will hopefully give you an understanding about how confused I was when I realized this was loose tea. Much to my surprise, I’ve been sipping this stuff daily. My mother had a cup as well, and now she’s dipping into my tea stash too! First of all, I’m a sucker for packaging. These little cardboard canisters are chic and simple, making them fabulous.
All you do is scoop a spoonful into the clothbag and steep it into your mug or tea kettle of hot water. A little honey and sugar, and it’s perfection! At first I thought, this is going to be way too much work for a cup of tea! But the 8 seconds of labor really, really pays off. I’m an old fashioned girl, so I was completely content with the Royal English Breakfast blend ($13.95). Apparently, Beyonce and Taylor Swift love the Sassy Green Tea with Acai. Smart choice ladies. Acai (pronounced Ah-Sah-Yee) is amazing for the body! For the more eclectic tea drinker, Tea Village Co. also offers white, jasmine, oolong and an assortment of other varieties. One canister will yield 40-45 servings of tea. Yes, anything over $5 is a bit pricey for tea, but don’t we all love a little relaxing getaway every once and awhile. I think so. I’m re-ordering!
