Default Share a cuppa with me..

You can see by my aviatar, I am a manic tea drinker. I would love to have some suggestions from those who share my love of tea, as to a tea I may not know about for a gift for a pal. Do you have a "special" tea, that you enjoy? I love PJ Tips, but, I wanted maybe, something exotic, or unique, but hot an herbal blend.....any suggestions are appreciated. P.S. I do know about Stash teas.....

Trip, with her book & tea!

Trip, I am not a tea drinker but what about giving a tea aficiando a selection of teas from around the world. This holiday season, with the sagging economy, we all have to be a bit more practical!

Well - I am a tea drinker too - I do have to jump start my day with Coffee, but after that it is tea - any type basically, tho' I don't love the reds very much.

Last year I bought one of those glass teapots and the tea flowers - it is just so lovely when it "blooms" before your eyes - it is more of a green type tea, they do come in differnt flavors - I love the jasmin ones.

I am a big fan of the Tazo teas. They have an orange one that is quite delightful.

I have a Cinnamon Plum that I enjoy immensely, it is by Republic of Tea.
I just made a big on-line order at their website on Saturday.
Often I visit the Bigelow tea site as well. They have all the old standards, I love Constant Comment and of course Earl Grey.
They have some nice tea accoutraments as well.

Have a Tealightful day!

I'm a tea lover too, but not much help I'm afraid, because I only like plain old Orange Pekoe, preferably Salada. Not a fan of flavoured and specialty teas.
I also collect tea pots, perhaps that might be an idea for your tea-loving friend!


Jen, I loved your expression - "have a tea-lightful day"!

Hi Trip!!!!
When in London we went to a big hotel to have tea like the Londonners,
then talking with a lady she recommended the "breakfast tea".Since that,
it is the kind we drink with english scones. Have a nice day.

I love the Chai tea at Starbucks, it has a clove flavor. i splurge once or twice a year around this time to have a tall cup at Starbucks. But you can buy the mix, or the teabags too.

maybe this would work for your gift.

I am no help, Not much of a tea drinker at all. Occasionally I enjoy a cup of flavored teas, mint, cinnamon apple or something like that. Coffee is my vice.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
