A Spot of Tea

The other afternoon the thought of a snack sounded good.

The thing is, my body didn't really need a snack.

So I brewed myself a spot of hibiscus tea and served it in my favorite rose-covered cup.

This is a most delicious, floral-tasting tea that is a rich, ruby color.

There's only one place around here that sells pure, organic hibiscus tea.

Unfortunately, I have never  been able to find it in the regular supermarkets. 

Many teas list hibiscus as one of the ingredients but never alone so finding it turned out to be a real boon.

Once a teaspoon of sugar was added to it, it tasted even more delicious.

Snack was averted, thanks to a spot of tea.

I could once give you my favorite, but that has changed. Now it's anybody's guess.:-) Sometimes a cup of tea doesn't take care of that need for a snack, though.:)

Hello from Spain: I like to drink tea with hibiscus. A cup of hot tea is very healthy. Keep in touch

Jasmine tea is my very favorite tea. I just love the smell and flavor of it.
In the morning I usually have one cup of Earl Grey with sugar and evaporated milk in it. That's the only tea I usually have for the day.
In the evening I like Jasmine. I do not need to add anything to that milk and no sugar. Yum.

Oh, I love tea... I drink green, black, pu'erh, herbals, oolong, you name it. My favourite tea is Dragonwell green tea which I have almost every morning. I totally get what you're saying about tea as a snack because I've done it many times. Tea can be a lovely snack and it's healthy too. :)
