Last week, I ordered some tea from Twinings where they have my all time favoite tea: Twinings Darjeeling. The Darjeeling is a light tea. It tastes like it's sweetened, even without sugar or honey (but I add sugar anyway!) My mother-in-law, who's a Lipton fan, accused me of sweetening her tea, when she tried this. (But then I think anything tastes better than regular Lipton.)
I first tried Twinings Darjeeling here in S.E. Idaho, but the stores have only carried it intermittently. Lately, they have stopped stocking it again, so I decided to buy it online. I needed to purchase a minimum order of $15.00, so I ordered a bit more - - -but I got some amazing teas. In addition to the Darjeeling (loose - for the "tin") and Darjeeling bagged (large box),
- Vanilla Black Tea (love the Bigelow brand - so thought I'd try this)
- Tastes of Summer Black Tea (This is sooooo good. Can't wait to try it iced.)
- Four Red Fruits Black Tea (just tried it tonight another Winner - that will taste good iced.) and
- Chocolate Indulgence (Not a tea - this is for hot cocoa & it comes in a tin!)
I was sooo excited when all the products came in. It's been awhile since I ordered anything just for me!!! (Well, and the family, as I generously share all of this.)
I am hoping to have a tea party and meet some of my neighbors. I say hoping, because I am not good at following through on "intentions." Until I set the date, and send out the invites. . .it's not likely to happen. So stay tuned. . .who knows. . .maybe I will actually pull it off this year!
