"GOURMET TEA"



          "CALL ME A SHOPAHOLIC” 

 If you need to RELAX ... Come on over ... I’ll be happy to  share a lovely mellow tea that I bought today.

While I normally order my tea online or buy it when I’m traveling,this one was purchased at Winners and it’s called Saffron/Chamomile Tea.


It’s a gourmet tea filled with ancient,exotic saffron,which is one of the most prized spices in the world. Not only is it delicious,but it has health benefits.

 The renowned psychic healer, Edgar Cayce recommended Saffron tea to many         of his patients as an healing agent for the stomach. Recent studies even suggest that "saffron" may have cancer suppressing properties.


Of course we’re enjoying a new type of Chamomile Tea blended with saffron. Please do try it as I have found that it was a perfectly delicious remedy for my busy day. Don’t you love shopping,( ha ha)  I mean choosing your tea cup? You can tell that I’m tired!!!



Luckily, I had this little teaset sitting on the shelf,just begging for  a nice hot brew. Isn’t the tapestry design ... PRETTY !!!

 Yes, It is just sweet and simple with no name, other than,"Made in England". I do enjoy it’s nostalgic little rose pattern.



After tasting the tea ... "Hm-m-m-m- Good”.. I did a little research on the internet and found the‘Gournmet Tea” site, where I could explore more teas.

Look for:( elite-gourmet.com or just write in Saffron Tea and it should  pop up. 
  
Goodness,you can buy:

        Saffron Cinnamon Diet Chai,Saffron & Red Rooibos,
                Saffron & Orange Earl Grey,
              Saffron Pomegranate & Chamomile,
                 Saffron Cardamom Black Tea,
                    Saffron Mango Green Tea, 
             Assam Black Citrus Spice and Saffron.


              I even found a,“ Saffron Tea"recipe: 
                    4 strand of  Saffron
                      A little Honey
                          Water

Put the saffron in a cup of warm water for ten minutes.After ten minutes, pour hot boiling water over it, then add honey. 

That’s easy,but first you have to find the saffron,which I               believe is available in most health food stores.

                I’m winding down...I think !!!


Well, it looks like an end to my day. I really must change my clothes just incase I go shopping again.( Hee hee)


Want to come !!!


THANKS for a relaxing teatime LADIES !!!

What a pretty figurine you have. The teacup is charming. Saffron tea would be a different taste for me, but probably a delicious one!

Zaa said...

Yes Lorrie..It’s very yellow..Try it some time... Thanks for the kind visit.

Margie said...

What an interesting tea and pretty teacup! I tried saffron tea years ago, but I honestly can't recall what it tasted like. I'm a former shopaholic and will have to live vicariously through you!

NanaDiana said...

Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting today! I was glad to be able to backlink to find you. I am not a big tea drinker but I love tea parties and all the beautiful china that goes along with the practice of drinking tea. I had a grandmother that had me drinking coffee at age 5....lol....with evaporated milk and sugar...lol Now I drink it black.

Hope you have a wonderful night. I am your newest follower. Hugs- Diana

Ruth W said...

Hi Zaa...What a lovely lady to be hostess! I love your pretty teacup too. I do like some flavored and exotic teas, but my favorite is a pretty plain cup of Darjeeling black tea. Have never heard of a saffron tea, I use that in risotto, not sure if I would like the tea...Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

You have another pretty porcelain figurine, and your tea cups are the prettiest. Yes, I love to shop, but don't always buy something, unless it is a one-of-a-kind item. : ) And I sip on Chamomile every night. Your posts are delightful, Zaa, and they leave me smiling every time I visit.
