Tea marvelous tea!




I am a tea lover, so I am always on the look out for interesting and lovely teas.

So when I found this site I danced (on my own) in my study.

So many choices and options and colors and tastes… I am a kid in a candy store!

Go have a look!!!!!!! http://www.theteamerchant.co.za/ And buy me some 🙂

As soon as my current teas are done I will start buying the flower tea and inform you of my “expert” opinion.

To make the Tea Martini

  1. Make a glass by putting together all ingredients in a shaker and shake for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Serve in martini glass or tea cup.
Note: If you don’t have corn syrup, you can make your own by boiling together 1 cup water with 2 cups sugar until dissolved. Adjust quantity of syrup to taste. You can also use other tea flavors for this recipe. This recipe is perfect with some scones or cookies on the side.
