It's not that I had forgotten that today was Tuesday - there was just so much going on!!!
I got a call from the little grocery store up the road - my tea order was in!!! Woohoo!!! I have been playing around making my own tea blends, and found this catalog -Frontier Co-op- and boy, do they have alot of neat stuff!!! The little grocery orders their items thru this catalog, so I got to look and pick out a few things. I am waiting for my own catalog to arrive in the mail, but in the meantime, I now have a few things to play with!!!
I will be selling at the little local farmers' market, and until the veggies start producing, I'll be selling tea blends, scones, and tea related items. There are some cute little teapot tea infusers also!
The large silver packs are tea leaves - a lb of each - lemon ginger, peppermint (or was it spearmint?) and stevia leaves. I got neat re-useable draw string tea bags, and a pack of bags for one time use. I will be making my own teabags out of cheesecloth and cotton string.
Since it is evening, and still hot out, I opted for plain old Lipton's ice tea, with a sprig of my home grown mint, stirred with one of my vintage silver iced tea spoons. The fragrance of my first peonies of the season, combined with the scent of honeysuckle wafting in the window on a faint breeze, makes the evening complete........................
