Tea Glorious Tea

I was just reading about Jacque Dixon's tea habit on Facebook and was rethinking mine of course. Being raised in Africa I am really addicted to tea especially Red bush or Rooibos Tea. This tea is only grown in South Africa and is amazing. It is caffeine free and also a diuretic - not harmfully so. My favorite way of making this kind of tea in the summer is to put 5-6 bags in the Sun tea jar and leave outside for a few hours. Discard the bags of tea, add honey and stir well. Place Suntea jar in the fridge and a few hours later enjoy a wonderfully refreshing drink. I jsut read about this glass tea jar which brews one cup of tea at a time from tea leaves. It looks awesome. Swing on over to take a look. I think I need one of these for that quick pick-me-up cup of tea in the winter time, especially before bed. If you want to find this Red Bush tea - look in Kroger's tea section and it is in a red box with Red Bush tea on it in the Private Selection label area. Check out the fancy tea jar at the website below

Now that sounds like a refreshing cuppa! Would love to come on over and have some with you - rooibos and a chat what could be better!

Have you ever tried this tea?: http://www.specialteas.com/Rooibos-Honeybush/781-Rooibos-Lemon-Chiffon.html We purchased some this spring, and it is really good and unique. I tried quite a few rooibos teas at the time, and this one was far and away our favorite!
