I am a tea drinker. And I have my favorites! I am always on the look out for new things though--
Just recently I came across Yogi Egyptian Licorice tea. I love the flavor of black licorice, and I know as an herb, it is touted to do a number of things:
“Licorice is useful for many ailments including asthma, athlete's foot, baldness, body odor, bursitis, canker sores, chronic fatigue, depression, colds and flu, coughs, dandruff, emphysema, gingivitis and tooth decay, gout, heartburn, HIV, viral infections, fungal infections, ulcers, liver problems, Lyme disease, menopause, psoriasis, shingles, sore throat, tendinitis, tuberculosis, ulcers, yeast infections, prostate enlargement and arthritis.”
Sounds like a total cure-all doesn’t it? Well I don’t know about old wives' tales, but you see that word MENOPAUSE in there?? I figure it’s worth a try! I just know I like the flavor of this tea….
So while we are on the subject of tea, I want to show you what Kathy made me! She first showed me this Tea Wallet during our Star Struck workshop in Wallingford, and I fell in NEED for one!
Isn’t this cute? It has all these pockets that will hold your tea bags, your splendas, etc….Love it!
The sides fold in like this…….into thirds…..and then:
And into thirds again, and look, it fastens with this adorable button!! Can’t you see all kinds of possibilities for these? They can hold other things besides tea too…..
So Saturday, at the workshop…..Kathy walked in with a whole boat load of these goodies, and told me to PICK A COLOR!!
I chose the red one with the big recycled brass button on it! Don’t you love this print?!
I also love the fabric she used as the lining….and it came with a couple of tea bags to get me started! I need to put some of my new Egyptian Licorice tea in the pockets and slip this into my purse so I am ready for tea on the go…
Don’t you just love the nifty cute things that Quilters come up with?
Today I am off to meet with the CT Piecemakers for a lecture/trunkshow this morning…it’s a whole new group to meet, and I can’t wait to get started!
