Today's tea is an old timey favorite - that I had never had before!
Sassafras tea- meant to be enjoyed cold - I tried it hot - and it was just as nice. Kind of a licorice flavor- I could see this mixed in with a fizzy water.
Along with this - since it is the season - a piece or two (or more!) of maple sugar candy!! Yum!!! haven't had these in years- but the local grocery just got some in!
Note- the sassafras has zero calories - since the maple sugar candy doesn't!!!
Also got another happy mail package - from Teresa- my "supplier"! :>)
Some teabags of mugicha, and the real thing to make the Japanese summer barley tea. It can be made as sun tea or the traditional way.
On a tea related note - here is one of the tea kettle cozies (sweaters) I crocheted, that are in Julieanna's shop. I forgot to take a photo when it was complete - there are hand dyed wool flowers on top. Two different styles are available- this one is adjustable to fit different sizes.
Please feel free to join us each Tuesday - visit Patty and Kimmie for a list of all the tea partiers!!
