We share tea and talk tea at assisted living homes, private homes and community centers. We play Teago Bingo with prizes for winners. We are also doing mystery tea events.
Spend time being refreshed by God's Word with a cup of tea. Relax in a comfy chair that gets some afternoon sun. Reflect on the goodness of life.
Real joy comes not from ease or riches or
from the praise of men, but from doing something worthwhile. Wilfred T. Grenfell
Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name. Ps 100:4
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
Blessings to you and your family. Have a TEA- rrrific day.

Traveling TEA With Jesus
Sunday, October 31, 2010
Use high quality water and steep to your personal taste.
Steep in 12 oz. pot-
Green Tea 1-1/2 tbsp 180-200 F 1-2 minutes
White Tea 2 tbsp 180-200 F 1-3 minutes
Scented Tea 1/2 tbsp 200 F 1-2 minutes
Oolong Tea 1/2-2 tbsp 212 F 1-2 minutes
Black Tea 1/2 -2 tbsp 212 F 1-2 minutes
Puer Tea 1-2 tbsp 212 F 1-2 minutes
I know some teas say to steep Black and Rooibos tea 3-5 minutes. All is how weak or how strong you would like it. I have steeped my black and rooibos tea about 3-5 minutes. Adjust time depending on your taste, longer steeps for a richer taste, shorter for a lighter taste.
Loose tea can usually be steeped 2 -3 times. Just leave a bit of water on leaves before next steep which helps strengthen your next cup. Also, subsequent cups will not only yield different flavors but even more nutrition.
Even tho loose tea may seem like alot when you purchase just remember you can reuse your loose tea for more than one cup and get just as much nutrition, antioxidants, minerals, vitamins.
You can also after you are done with the loose tea you can let them dry and put them in a sachet.
