Bangkok Lemongrass

My Tea Thoughts:

Sunday, December 28, 2008

Bangkok Lemongrass smells great and tastes even better! I got two more delicious-looking teas along with this one for Christmas, so expect posts on them soon. Back to the tea at hand, this tea has all the joyous flavor of peaceful summer sunshine. It's not a smooth tea, but this only adds to the appreciation of its lemony base, with notes of honey and just a hint of sage. An all-around great tea, recommended for a noon or afternoon cup. Thanks for this tea -- you know who you are!

Happy Sipping,

Haiku Friday ~ No. 8

Trees are shedding lights,
But we still can celebrate
The birth of our Lord!

To get you through the post-holiday letdown, sip a steaming cup of Earl Grey (a classic staple) and unwind before you go make those returns!

Happy Sipping,

Haiku... um... Sunday? ~ No. 7

So sorry I am posting this soooo late!

Will summer arrive
Before we all freeze to death?
Never fear, it will!

If you, like me, are shivering through this Christmastime, try a cup of "Candy Cane Lane" (a decaf green tea with peppermint; I promise to review it soon!) to add some holiday cheer and hold off Jack Frost!

Haiku Friday ~ No. 6

Flour falling down:
Can it be? The clouds can bake!
Children play in snow.

Brrr! Let's warm up with a wintry cup of white tea -- pure as the driven snow.

Haiku "Friday" ~ No. 5

Sorry about the delay... I just totally forgot! Well, here's the haiku for this week:

Mistletoe and gifts
Are not all that's Christmas-time.
Celebrate Christ's birth!

Try some Peppermint Herbal or a similar minty delight for a traditional wintry flavor with this haiku.

Happy Sipping,
