Ginseng flower on Tuesday..

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

I've just been to Caterina's and she's having "sari tea"
and my other Tea Tuesday friends will be sharing their tea adventures too...
So, hop over to Kimmie's and you'll find them..

My tea story today is about 2 owl (Japanese) cups and Ginseng Flower tea..


which health properties are equivalent to the Ginseng plant (of course :)
"strengthening the Qi, promotes restfulness, etc...." < I need them ;) >

The owls? well I lugged them back from Florida!!
ah well when you love tea, there are no limits to buying tea paraphernalias... ;)

By the way, remember to drop your name into the "Giveaway" hat right before this post, below
to receive Asian theme collage and art materials with the Somerset mags...
The owners will be announced next Tuesday (18th January)!
(PS I'm actually sourcing these materials and packaging them especially for the giveaways ..after all I'm here in Asia :)))  )
 Happy Tuesday!!!

Such unique tea cups - you must have been extra careful with them on the flight. And ginseng flower sounds lovely

I do so love your owl cups too!!! I would have lugged them halfway around the world too!! Thank you so much Steph for your lovely and sweet Christmas gifts! I received them yesterday - just in time for today's tea post!! You are dear to send your thoughtfulness this far!

Dear Steph,

First, thank you so much for the lovely gifts you sent. I got them when I got home from the PO yesterday afternoon. Although my power had been turned back on, I was exhausted from shoveling out my car and driveway, then sliding my way to the PO. Thank you for thinking of me. You are way, way too generous.

Second, these little lidded cups are adorable. You have the best taste in tea cups. And I can see you have great taste in tea, too. Ginseng Flower tea sounds delightful. You have access to far better tea than I ever could, but like you, I prefer the loose leaf, not the bag.

Happy belated Tea Tuesday. I hope to send a few of my UK friends your way today, too. I know once they get here, they will LOVE what they see!

it's not only the tea, for the full relaxation benefit, the cup is a very important part of the package. enjoy. fascinated by your asian themed collage and art materials. may have to drop my name in the hat. i do alot of asian themed collages and always looking for new materials.

Hi dear friend. I thought you might enjoy my blog post today. Just another thank you from the bottom of my trusting heart!
