Taking Time for Tea

A friend gave me a small tin of Tea forte' for my birthday. I have read about this tea, but can't remember drinking it before today. The information on the back of the tin of Ceylon black tea with jasmine flowers says: Unwrap a silken tea infuser and smell the fresh tea harvest. These revolutionary infusers are filled with the freshest whole-leaf teas and rough-cut herbs. Turn a simple cup of tea into a celebrations. Tea Forte infusers create a memorable experience for all the senses. Indulge. I don't know the price of this tea as it was a gift. And, I agree it can turn a simple cup into a celebration, but other loose leaf teas do that as well. That is the beauty of tea. It takes time to heat the water and prepare a nice cup or pot of tea. And, it takes time to enjoy a nice cup of tea. That is why tea has been described as a "cup of serenity." Tea is more than a beverage, it is all about taking time out of your busy day for yourself!

And how do you like the tea? I've not had these, but I've seen them and found them to be very lovely in packaging.

Steph, This tea was flavorful with a hint of jasmine, but, in my opinion, not superior to other similar loose leaf teas. The packaging is outstanding and unique. Apparently Tea Forte' is doing a fine job of marketing. I believe it is being promoted as Oprah's favorite tea.

I have found a wonderful new tea by Celestial Seaonings called Bengal Spice. It is so rich in flavour for a herbal tea and is wonderful hot or iced. I am hooked totally :-)
