Top 3 Favorite Teas - Spring Edition




                   Spring is the most beautiful season of the year.Flowers are blooming, grass is growing

and new life is forming. Spring is also a great time to try new teas.There's black tea, green tea, herbal

tea just to name a few. The bitter beverage has been around for thousands of years and has grown

very popular in recent years. It's used in place of coffee, goes well with snacks and and desserts.

Some are also used for medicinal purposes.... but we won't be talking about that today.

                  Today, I want to share with you three of my favorite tea flavors. We'll talk about what they
taste like, how long to steep them, and the best way( in my opinion) to drink them. This is my own

opinion.

                  Jasmine Green Tea: This has to be my absolute favorite tea.Green tea has so many

antioxidants and is so good for you. Now, Jasmine just brings your green tea up to a whole new

level...or two. It's amazing hot, but you can drink it with ice too. I don't add any sweetener to my

teas, but it would be great with honey. Steep for about 2 to 3 minutes. Enjoy with rice dishes slightly

sweet treats.

                 Peppermint: Peppermint tea is an herbal tea. It has no tea leaves in the mix. Just good old

fashioned peppermint leaves.The fresh taste of peppermint is just ans refreshing as mint gum. It's the

best  tea to enjoy on Spring afternoons and tastes best over ice. Steep for about 2 minutes. Don't

steep this one for too long or it will taste bitter; I found this out the hard way.

                Peach: Peach tea is also and herbal tea. It's usually made with peach blossoms and is mixed

with other herbs and flowers. It's best enjoyed cold over ice with yummy snacks. Steep it the same as

the others. Honey is a great choice to sweeten this tea.

                 Well, there you have it. My Top 3 favorite teas for Spring. Teas are nice and refreshing,

perfect for warm Spring days. I like to drink mine outside in the sunlight. How do you like to enjoy

your tea? What's your favorite part about Spring? Let me know in the comments below. Have a

sweet day!

A Personal Note



                First of all I want to apologize for not posting these last couple of weeks. I've been a little

discouraged in my writing lately. It's frustrating knowing that some people don't support you in your

dreams or don't agree with your ideas. How do you deal with discouragement and frustration?

                Sometimes, I think, people don't see beyond their own opinions and don't try to understand

where you are coming from. So, trying to work on things you love when the other person is not

around seems like the best option. But, it should it shouldn't be this way.  Being able to do what

makes you happy without worrying about what the other person thinks shouldn't be a problem. So,

from here on out let's declare that we don't care about the opinion of others and just do what makes

us happy. If you want to write, then write. If you want to dance, then dance. If you want to start your

own bakery then do it. The point is that if you feel deep in your heart it is something you are meant

to do and it makes you happy then do it.



             On to other news. I also want to touch on what is coming up for the blog and I think you are

going to like it. I'm going to start doing some reviews once a month, starting in March. Now, these

reviews are going to be my personal opinion. I'm not working with any companies for these reviews.

I'll also share with you my favorites from time to time. Don't worry there will still be recipes and

crafty fun.

           Now, my question for you is: What would you like to see reviewed? Baking products, candy

making products, candy in general etc.? Let me know in the comments below. Have a sweet day.
