Tea and Honey

G.J. drinks only decaf tea. I finally have been able to teach him to recognize the difference between a good quality decaf tea and a "less than good quality" version.  Typhoo is the brand we have purchased in England on several occasions so when I find it here, I always purchase it for him.  This time I found it in a speciality foods store in Lexington. 

As I continued shopping, I noticed the Honey Bitzzzzzz™.  This is a granulated version of honey.  ParTea Lady at Tea and Talk recently posted about a granulated honey she discovered as a substitute for sugar.   This is not the same as her's and upon closer examination of the label, I discovered the ingredients include: sugar, honey and caramel color.   The instructions on the back of the package say it can be sprinkled in hot tea, shake on cereal, buttered toast, ice cream, or yogurt or use in baking.  Sounds promising.  I will give it a try.

The Honey Bitzzzz sound very interesting! I may have to look for them next time I'm in a place that sells specialty foods like that.

I've been wanting to try Typhoo tea (the caffeinated kind). Let us know how you like the Honey Bitzzzzzz.

I am a decaff tea drinker too but not a fan of Typhoo. I stick with PG & Twinings, plus a few herbal choices.
