Teas The Season

The season is beginning to change but it is still time to have a picnic…a teatime picnic that is. I had the opportunity to host a picnic tea and incorporated the elements of an afternoon tea as a picnic. It was great fun and here is how it came together. The whole idea of a picnic was originally a 17th Century French word, picque-nique. Its meaning was similar to today’s meaning: a social gathering where each attendee brings a share of the food.

An Early Lesson in Rooibos Tea
Teas The Season
by Beth
2y ago
A tea or not to be…. A true tea comes from the Camellia Sinesis plant and is divided into 6 true teas – black, green, oolong, pu-erh, yellow and white. The difference in these teas is based on the way the leaves are dried, oxidized, fermented and prepared. But in recent years, non-traditional “teas” have gained popularity. These “teas” are known as tisanes, teas made from berries, roots, spices and that do not contain any Camellia Sinesis. Let’s have an early lesson in Rooibos Teas.
