Thanks to Kim @ Shabby,Pink and Pretty for hosting Tea Things. Please drop by her blog and see others who are showing tea things or get out your beautiful teapot and come join us.
I found this beautiful tea set at TJ Maxx and then found the larger pitcher at Stein Mart a few days ago.
Of course, I threw away the paper tag that came on the pieces, but I will find out the name of maker.
Here are some teas I found and ordered online from this company…Teavana. I was not familiar with Rooibus Tea, but it is very good. This is what I found about it.
It is pronounced “ROY BOS”
Rooibos is becoming more popular in Western countries particularly among health-conscious consumers, due to its high level of antioxidants ,its lack of caffeine, and its low tannin levels compared to fully oxidized black tea or unoxidized green tea leaves.
Rooibos is purported to assist with nervous tension, allergies and digestive problems.
Traditional medicinal uses of rooibos in South Africa include alleviating infantile colic, allergies, asthma and dermatological problems
The flavour of rooibos tea is often described as being sweet (without sugar added) and slightly nutty. Rooibos can be prepared in the same manner as black tea, and this is the most common method. Unlike black tea, however, rooibos does not become bitter when steeped for a long time. Rooibos tea is a reddish brown colour, explaining why rooibos is sometimes referred to as "red tea".
I hope you enjoyed your tea today.
