The Season for Giving

A warm cup of tea on a cool autumns eve or anytime is so wonderful. Tea makes me feel relaxed, warm, and cozy. We have given tea, and received it for gifts and we love it! I think tea is a great gift for a teacher, a friend, gift exchange, your Dad, or anyone you know who likes tea.
Our favorite place to get tea is the TEA SOURCE. We have been purchasing tea from one of their tea shops for quite a few years. They have quite a few varieties and are very helpful. If you can't make it to one of their shops, you may order online. Our favorites are: (The descriptions are from the site.)
Moon over MadagascarCode: 3002Price: Varies by size
This is an indulgent and decadent black tea. It is a marvelous blend of Chinese and Ceylon black teas with Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar. Rich and sumptuous tasting.
Evening In MissoulaCode: 9001Price: Varies by size
Our most popular herbal. Chamomile, rosehips, raspberry, papaya, peppermint, spearmint, strawberry leaf, vanilla, passion flower, red clover, star anise, and wild cherry bark. Absolutely fabulous.
Reena's ChaiCode: 1750Price: Varies by size
It is the family recipe of an Indian tea family. This blend of Indian black tea and whole spices is strong, spicy, aromatic, and delicious. This is our most authentic chai.
Don't these look wonderful:
Chocolate SafariCode: 9002Price: Varies by size
This delicious blend of rooibos, chocolate, vanilla extract, and coconut brews up an indulgent cup that is rich, very smooth, chocolatey, and irresistible
Basket O' BerriesCode: 9022Price: Varies by size
A very fruity and sweet tisane made with apple, elderberries, rosehip peels, blackberries, raspberry, flavoring, hibiscus, and sour cherry pieces. Kids love it.
Popped RooibosCode: 9034Price: Varies by size
This delicious and unique blend is very full-bodied and is slightly sweet (almost caramel-like), slightly toasty, and slightly popcorny. Contains rooibos, green tea, almond brittle, roasted rice, flavor.
Most of the teas come in 2 or 4 oz. foil bags. If you bring your bag back, they will credit you five cents. I'll be making a stop to one of their shops soon, I hope you do too!
