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

Traveling TEA With Jesus

Spring teas

Spring is here and I am going to share a couple of teas I prepared and enjoyed last week.

A strong iced tea, made with fresh ginger.

5 tea bags
1-inch piece of fresh ginger
Sugar, to taste

Slice ginger root into thin slices and crush. Heat 1 quart of water and let tea steep with the ginger. Let steep over low heat for at least 10 minutes. Strain out tea and ginger slices and add sugar. Let cool and serve over ice.

This Green Tea Sangria recipe from Afternoon Teas, Please is a non-alcoholic sangria made with iced green tea and fresh fruit. It won the Monthly Tea Recipe Contest in August, 2010. Contest judge Chris Cason of Tavalon Tea described this tea as sweet and fruity, but light enough that you can easily drink a full pitcher without feeling like it's a meal.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Steep time: 12 hours

Total Time: 12 hours, 10 minutes

Yield: Approx. six cups


3 cups water
6 tsp. green tealeaves (Cason recommends a Chinese green tea from Fujian, China)
1 sliced Granny Smith apple
3 cups ice cubes
Several sliced citrus fruits, such as lemons, limes or oranges
Honey (to taste)

Bring the water to a boil and then allow it to cool for several minutes.
Steep the tea in a pot for the recommended amount of brewing time.
Line the bottom of an 8-cup pitcher with the apple slices.
Add the ice cubes and tea.
Top the mixture with sliced citrus fruit.
Cover the pitcher and refrigerate it overnight.
Add honey to taste.
Add more ice before serving if desired.
