Tea for Two on Tuesday

Hot tea solves everything.  Well, that's not entirely true, but hot or iced tea certainly has a soothing, calming, and quenching effect on me.  I'm not a tea expert by any means, but I do like to try new things and there are so many different kinds available...it's just exciting to a tea fanatic like myself.  I do like chamomile tea when I'm feeling a bit on edge or achy, as it calms me down and lets me sleep peacefully.  During the daytime, I usually choose a nice fruity tea or with a touch of mint...peach or raspberry teas are my favorites.  Decaffinated tea is sort of a misnomer, but what I like in the mornings as I try to wake up...love the smell, the steam opens my pores and the hot cup warms my hands.  I went to a tea room with my daughter this weekend and since it was another warm fall day, we decided to have our lunch out on the deck.  She chose a green herbal tea to go with her portebella mushroom sandwich and salad (what's the difference?) and I chose peach tea to go with my fruited turkey sandwich and pasta salad.  We thought they had mixed up our teas but they proved to be correct, even though my tea looked green and hers looked peachy.  Looking at Bonnie's collection of tea cups and saucers was fun, and everything hanging on the walls had to do with tea.  A tea room...maybe I should decorate with tea?

Thanks be to God for His inexpressible gift!
