Tea to Go Cups

While out and about today, I found these neat tea to go cups and wanted to share. It is a travel tumbler with a built in tea infuser basket. On the lid there is a little lever that swings the basket into the water. When the tea is done steeping, you just lift it out of the water and it tucks away in the lid.

It is dishwasher safe, which is a huge time saver for me and fits in my car's cup holder. I'm on the go a lot and love to bring tea with me wherever I go.  Oh and the lid snaps shut, so no spills either.

You can easily order it from Amazon and have it shipped right to your home. Check it out and let me know what you think. What is your favorite tea to go cup? Share in the comments below.

Dreaming About Teapots

On this cold and rainy Saturday, after a blissful few days of warm weather and sunshine, my thought turn to teapots. Full of beauty, but also a thing of function. The perfect place to allow tea leaves to steep, creating that wonderful cup of tea that warms the body and soul.

Perhaps a strong and sturdy American Tea Room Signature Black Teapot?

Or a Cast Iron Teapot covered in cherry blossoms to help us look forward to Spring?

This glass teapot is a great way to see the tea as it steeps or to enjoy a flowering tea as it unfolds.

How about Tea for One in this practical teapot?

Yes, I am dreaming of Teapots. Will you join me? Which one is your favorite?

Teavana Strawberry Lemonade & Jasmine Tea Blend

Teavana Free ShippingYesterday my husband and daughter traveled to our local mall to go birthday shopping for me.  My birthday is not for another 4 weeks and this was quite the surprise.  My husband is usually a fly by the seat of his pants, last minute kind of guy.  When they came home they had a cup of iced tea from Teavana.

My daughter loves going there to try the samples and we usually walk out with something. My husband very excitedly says "you have to try this." It was a red colored tea and I could immediately taste the jasmine. I asked him what it was and he told me it was a blend of Strawberry Lemonade and Peachberry Jasmine Sutra tea. Normally my husband is not a big fan of Jasmine tea, so it was a surprise that he liked it.

These two teas make a really great blend together and I am going to add some of both to the tea cabinet. Now is a great time to do so too, because with every $30 order placed at Teavana.com, you can receive a gift subscription to Body+Soul magazine. What a great way to do something nice for your body & soul with tea and a magazine filled with articles and tips on living a healthy lifestyle.
