I spent some time this afternoon writing a post…this is not that post.
I pressed “save draft” and went to assemble dinner. My mind wandered to what I had been writing…not very well, I might add and God said…
“Not now…maybe later.”
So that post…if it is supposed to be published will be just that…maybe later.
But I was going to tag a little something on to the tail end of that other post…so here it is…thus the incredibly original title to this post.
On Friday, I visited a Starbucks with a couple of girlfriends. I wanted to try their new drink London Fog Tazo Tea Latte…my all time favorite tea is Earl Grey and this drink is a combination of Italian Bergamot, lavender and vanilla…our server was so nice and gave each of us gals a couple coupons to try their new tea lattes…they passed but I was overjoyed…it was divine! Check out your Starbucks and you might be able to get your hands on a free coupon and a special card for $2 tea drinks after 2pm.
Anyway, I got to thinking…I wonder if I could duplicate this at home…so I opened my tea drawer…I actually have two…and inside I found this…my friend Kim had given me a can of this wonderful tea awhile back…I had forgotten…since becoming more of a coffee drinker, I have much neglected tea. Last night, I brewed a pot of tea, heated up some fat-free half and half added a packet of Splenda and made my own tea latte…alas no foam but it was really yummy.
I have a lot of tea…I won’t go into details but it was a lot…they are skinny drawers but nonetheless…I am not sure if I heard that there would be a shortage of tea soon or what but it was a bit embarrassing. I won’t even try to go into excuses…I just have overbought and underused this item. But instead of staying amongst my shame of so much when many have so little…I made these today…
I had myself a little tea party…
I made these little tea packets…each contains a variety of about 10 tea packets and the ones on the bottom just contain assorted green teas. I used leftover letter stickers and had fun. I am going to give them to neighbors or friends or anyone who could use a lift…Courtney is going to give a couple to her tea loving friends and I am sending some to work with Carl for his co-workers.
Now one drawer is empty…the other drawer holds the teas that we drink most often…Earl Grey of course, Earl Grey Green which is wonderful, the Earl Grey with lavender, some mint, some bedtime tea, a little chamomile, some peach tea and that’s about it.
I have been really…I mean a really big winner lately in giveaways…so in that spirit…I am giving away a packet of my tea assortments
I talked here a bit about how I am reading through the Word this year…this book has the program of taking you through the Old Testament once and the Psalms and New Testament twice. Each day there is a one page reading based on one of the places you have read…I am using the second volume but have a brand new volume one waiting for someone.
Leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite hot beverage is and you will be entered to win…that simple…I will choose a winner the morning of January 16th…
So please enter…I am off to heat up the tea kettle and curl up with a good book…
