Welcome to Friendship Tea, a blog about the daily happenings in the life of Linda, a tea enthusiast, who enjoys travel and trip planning, and is passionate about family, friends, life in Kentucky, and all things TEA.
I found this stainless steel vacuum insulated 2 liter Primula Carafe at Home Goods for $19.99. It can be used for cold or hot beverages, but for me, it will only be for tea! This carafe has a thermometer and gauge built into the lid to show the temperature of the beverage inside. According to the package label, it is Temp Assure™ Technology. The slogan is "After all, when flavor is important...Temperature is Everything!" Hmm...that is what I have always been taught by various tea educators, and it was the only one on the shelf...I snatched it up in a flash and put it in my cart and never looked back!
When the world is all at odds And the mind is all at sea Then cease the useless tedium And brew a cup of tea. There is magic in its' fragrance, There is solace in its' taste; And then laden moments vanish Somehow into space. And the world becomes a lovely thing! There's beauty as you'll see; All because you briefly stopped To brew a cup of tea. ~ Source unknown
