I hab a cold…snif.fle..sneeze…and just got my DAVIDsTEA shipment from Canada today…so against my better judgement (just knew this was not going to cut it) I did a 5 minute steep of this with some sweetening, no milk (yucky). Howdy Doody Hollywood! Almost had a miracle cure! Fantastic margarita madness citrus mandarin like those orange slice candies…you know the ones…gum drops. Made me feel better, not bitter.

One thing that I’ve tried before that I might do again in the Summer is simmer some tea like this one with honey, strain and enjoy. This is especially good with a tea that has habiscus and makes a slightly pink honey. Nice on berries with Greek yoghert or in a duller tea.

Grandmother to 3 teenaged girls and 5 young boys. (we all drink tea!) I began teatime in the Summer over 30 years ago when my children were little. We took a break from play for tea and snacks every day. My children loved tea time.
There are several tea houses close to my home and a Tea Festival in Boulder. Fort Collins is a bit of a foodie town. We brew lots of Beer (Fat Tire is one brand) and have several Spice Shops (Savory was one featured on Food Network).
Colorado State University is a mile from my home and the Rocky Mountains begin to climb at the end of my street. The climate is semi-arid with LOTS OF SUN AT 5000 feet. (Heavy Winter snows start in higher elevations). Living my whole life in Northern California (Silicon Valley) I have to admit that I LOVE IT HERE!!!
I attend a wonderful Greek Orthodox Church and enjoy cooking ethnic foods (all kinds). I am disabled with Migraines and Fibromyalgia.
My family is Bi-racial (African-American, Scots) and Bi-cultural, (Peru, Cyprus, France, Mexico, Native American)
