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.

Great mint tea recipes

Found some great mint tea recipes from by  Lindsay Goodwin

Mint makes an excellent herbal tea on its own, but you'll have something special with the addition of fennel and lemonbalm. An added bonus is that this blend will ease an upset stomach as well.


  • 8 oz peppermint leaves
  • 8 oz lemon balm leaves
  • 8 oz fennel seeds


Mix the herbs thoroughly, and store in an air tight container. For a cup of tea, use 1 tsp in a cup of boiling water. Steep for 10 minutes and strain out the herbs.

To make Watermelon Iced Tea, you will need:
  • 6 teaspoons black tea leaves, preferably Nilgiri or Ceylon
  • 3 cups boiling water
  • 3 cups ice
  • 1/6 or 1/4 watermelon, cut into cubes
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 sprig of mint, plus a few extra for garnish (optional)
To start making Watermelon Iced Tea, brew your tea. Here's how:
  1. Combine the tea leaves and boiling water in a teapot.
  2. Let steep for three to five minutes.
  3. Strain the tealeaves.
  4. Combine all ingredients but the tea in a blender. Blend until smooth using the "blend" setting. It should take about 30 seconds. As needed, stop blending to push the ingredients toward the blades with a spoon.

    Once the mixture is smooth, you can proceed to step three or cover the mixture until shortly before you plan to serve Watermelon Iced Tea. (Combining the watermelon mixture and the tea just before serving prevents the drink from separating.)Set the tea aside in the fridge or freezer When you're almost ready to serve Watermelon Iced Tea, pour the brewed black tea over a pitcher of ice. Most of the ice will melt, but you've brewed the tea extra strong to accommodate for this diultion.   Just before serving Watermelon Iced Tea, combine all ingredients in a large glass pitcher. Stir well. If the drink begins to separate into layers (as is natural for agua fresca-style drinks), simply stir it again.
          Serve this Southern sweet tea/watermelon agua fresca hybrid in a clear glass to show off
          its brilliant color. Add more ice or a sprig of mint if desired. Serve any extra Watermelon        
        Iced  Tea from a pitcher.

Any leftover Watermelon Iced Tea can be kept covered and refrigerated to be drunk the next morning.

Makes about four servings.
