Jasmine Chicken Soup!

We had an unseasonably chilly, rainy weekend here in New York, so it was a good time to warm up with some Chicken Soup. And with our Jasmine Tea Sale, we figured we'd share a delicious Jasmine Chicken Soup recipe we found online. We'll be sharing more Jasmine recipes throughout the month, so be sure to come back! Stay warm out there, and don't fret - Summer is almost here! (We Hope!)

Earl Grey Tea Cookies

Tea is so versatile.  Of course you can drink it.  But did you know you could bake with it?  Add some fine loose leaf tea into your favorite cake or bread recipe and it elevates it to a higher level of indulgence. 

We're going to share some of our tea baking secrets with you.  If your recipe calls for melting butter, you could add some tea right into the butter. Another option is to add some tea leaves directly into your batter or dough.  If your tea is too coarse, use a spice grinder or a mortar & pestle to break it up into finer pieces. So easy!

Old Friends & New At a Tea Meeting

Yesterday, I was privileged to speak at the Annual Mid-Atlantic Tea Business Association in Bel Air, MD.  It was hosted this year by Tea by Two, a charming Tea Room owned by two friends, Janet & Erin. After a career in the insurance industry, they decided to make a significant change in their life trajectory and entered the wonderful world of Tea. Their care and attention to detail is evident and their enthusiasm and warmth obvious.  The Tea Room carries plenty of loose leaf tea and all manner of teaware exhibited on charming, old-fashioned stands and furniture.

The morning started with registration accompanied by Tea and a light Breakfast, with a generous Swag Bag of tea goodies available to each attendant.  Their beautiful tea cups and arrangements added to the overall atmosphere.
