Another Shameless Commercial Plug

I'm sitting here at my desk at work sipping on the absolute best tea I've ever tasted. It's the Republic of Tea's Asian Jasmine White Tea. Now, keep in mind that tea is not usually my drink of choice -- I generally do not enjoy black tea at all unless it has milk in it or it's iced, and I've never gotten my home-brewed green tea to taste as good as the tea you get in Chinese restaurants. This particular tea, however, is practically sending me into a moment, it's so good. And white tea is supposed to have even greater health benefits than green tea -- more antioxidants, less caffeine. (Just anecdotally, this tea seems to possess, like ketchup, special mellowing agents that make me less squirrely in the office...which takes some doing.)

So if you know a tea aficionado, slip a can of Asian Jasmine White into their Christmas stocking. They will thank you.

Did you know there are Lutheran Chick gift items that include tea mugs here? I just saw them and cracked up. Granted they are not "Chik" but close is close.

P.S. an after-thought said...

I thought I was smelling jasmine all the time during my recent trip to Uganda. It was probably the flowers on the coffee trees, or perhaps, the night rose, as one person told me.

No one else was noticing this. But I notice the flowers, the plants, that sort of thing.

All of Republic of Tea's varieties are wonderful. My current favorite is Pink Lemonade Green Tea. Though Pink Lady Apple ranks pretty high,too. Oh, and the classic Ginger Peach. And...

Well, I could go on and on...
