Measuring Spoons and New Tea

There is nothing like a tea theme gift from a friend to brighten your day.  This set of measuring spoons is so cute.

Each measure has a different pattern on the teapot and tea cup.

I like the way the metal is shaped to look like steam is swirling out of the teapot.  Thanks Joyce for such a thoughtful tea gift.

There was a new (to me) kind of tea at Marshalls today and even better, it was on the clearance table.

Vykasa Zanzibar flavor tea is not a familiar brand, but it sounded like a special green tea blend with raspberry, rose hip, black currant and blue mallow with passion fruit.  It comes in a nice tin with an inner lid to keep it airtight.

It had a lovely fragrance and gentle flavor with no bitterness.  I  first noticed a slight tartness , followed by sweetness – very soothing.  I’m pleased to have found another green tea that I like, since my goal is to drink less black tea and much more of the green.  To see other Vykasa teas and products go here.

Those spoons are adorable! Is it rude to ask where she got them? Thanks for sharing.

Love LOVE luv!!!!! The spoons. Great gift.
Glad your tea turned ut to be a good one. One great thing about getting the teas at these discount stores, if they're no good at least we didn't pay much! LOL!
