My daily cup of tea is Elmwood Inn's Mayor's Cup, a blend of Ceylon, Darjeeling and Assam.
In addition, today I drank a cup of Harney and Sons Decaffeinated Ceylon and and a cup of African Autumn, a rooibos (in the above photo). Belinda left a comment yesterday informing me of the overwhelming requests for decaf tea at her church teas. Thank you, Belinda, for letting me know that. I would appreciate an opportunity to discuss this with you if you would email me at teatimegrandama3atyahoodotcom, if you don't mind.
In Angela's comment, she called me a tea "purist." Isn't it amazing how well we get to know each other through the blog world?!? She has me pegged, as I choose to drink black tea and black tea blends (no flavors) with absolutely no added milk or sweetener. And, Angela, I will report on the teas and why I did or didn't choose particular teas for this event.
I'm open to any and all suggestions for choosing a tea to serve 200 ladies. And, I must admit, the flavored tea choices I served last year, Harney's Hot Cinnamon Spice and Harney's Paris were overwhelmingly successful.
Hmmm... maybe I should take the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" approach and serve the same thing again. However, on the other hand, should I take the golden opportunity to introduce another fine tea to many women who would not drink anything other than Lipton tea bags?
