September Tea Chat!

September is my favorite month of the year. I love the changing of the color of the leaves , the cool evening, the clean crisp mornings and the renewal of the season...
I am planning the the End of the Summer Tea with the seasonal  berries, pumpkin and apples to wake the season up nicely.

I am all set for the changing of the leaves and the cooler weather. . 
The Tea Salon is ready for the charming colorful month of September.  It is a new month, new season and a good time flavorful seasonal tea.
Great time to invite some of your family and friends over for a "September Celebration Tea". 
It will be a renewed experience. Summer is over and it is time for new adventures.  Sit and talk about your Summer fun and what  plans you have for the cooler weather. 
All  my guest have agreed that they will be able to come to the Salon more often, now that kids are back to school, vacations is over and it time to enjoy the "Me Time". 

This is a great way to re-cop  from the hustle and bustle of  Summer. 
 Time to take in the sounds of tranquility and the smells of home baked goods. Perfect time to warm up the oven after a long Summer shut down.

This is a beautiful story of an amazing lady. I wish I had meet her. She is a perfect example of growing old gracefully.
She is my inspiration of living a quiet and peaceful lifestyle.

August Tea Table Chat!

                                               Hot Tea!
Keep a variety of hot tea on hand. Orange pekoe and English breakfast are the most popular blend to serve with a meal. Delicate oolong, smoky souchong and the spicy blends are appropriate for afternoon tea. Store tea in a tightly covered tin away from spices or other aromatic foods. Warm a china or earthenware pot (metal changes the flavor of the tea) by rinsing it with boiling water. Measure the tea into the pot- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon per cup according to the quality of the tea and the desired strength. Pour in just enough boiling water so that the tea leaves float freely  Cover and let stand 3 minutes (longer steeping develops a bitter taste), Strain, and dilute with boiling water. Serve tea  in delicate china cups with cube sugar or rock candy, cream or milk (English tea lovers insist on milk), and thin slices of lemon. For a spicy flavor, stick each lemon slice with two or three cloves, Serve China tea or smoky souchong tea clear with nothing to distract from the distinctive bouquet.

June In The Studio!

June is National Iced Tea Month.    June 10 is designated as National Iced Tea Day!

 Legend has it that a tea vendor at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis popularized the drink. 
 Richard Blechynden, director of the East India pavilion, became frustrated as he tried to offer samples of hot tea under the simmering Missouri sun. In an attempt to boost consumption, he circulated and chilled the tea through a series of lead pipes immersed in ice.

 The resulting cool, refreshing beverage was a hit with fair goers, and the iced drink became popular throughout the United States. Be sure to always call it iced tea rather than ice tea. Tea with ice in it is an iced beverage.
 So,we have the 1904 World’s Fair to thank for the lift-off in popularity of iced tea. That exceedingly hot summer meant fair goers were looking to cool down and what better way than with a glass of iced tea.
By the First World War, Americans were buying tall glasses, which became commonly known as iced-tea glasses, long spoons suitable for stirring sugar into taller glasses and lemon forks. 
Prohibition, which ran from 1920 to 1933, helped boost the popularity of iced tea as Americans looked at alternatives to drinking beer, wine and hard liquor, which were made illegal during this period.

We are also trying to keep cool with the upcoming summer weather at the Tea Salon. 

We are serving this month a nice Wonjoh Ice Tea. It is a flavorful Hibiscus tea from West Africa. 

It makes for a great colorful and refreshing Iced Tea.    Add some berries and orange slices and sit back and enjoy.

Well with that said, "I wish you a cool and lazy summer!"
