In Response to Re: Valentine's Day:
Morning Nicki and everyone, talking about tea have you ever tried the Sugar Plum Spice Celestial Seasoning flavor? I had a hard time finding it during the year except during the holidays so I would stock up with a few boxes because they are soooooo good. I toured the company a few years back and they have all the teas in a gift shoppe at the end of the tour. Before you start the tour they have several types of teas to sample. I was in heaven! When I put my tea's in with my carry on luggage I was singled out and they looked at me like I was smuggling gold. They asked me, "Don't they sell tea in Chicago". My reply was, Well if they did then I made this trip for nothing and I wouldn't be asked so many ridiculous questions. If I answered like that now I probably would get jail time and considered a terrorist! LOL For those who don't know Celestial Seasoning is located in Colorado. I now get their catalog but still go to visit my sister in Colorado as often as money will allow! LOL To get a catalog call 1-800-2000-TEA

The sugar Plum Spice is good. I picked up another new one, at least for me, this year it's Gingerbread Spice. Very good, a bit of spice is nice morning or evening. If I make one of my big mugs of tea I will sometimes mix the gingerbread spice with a Chai. Sounds strange but the spices go well together. I have also dropped a piece of crystallized ginger into the bottom of the mug when I do the Gingerbread one. A bit extra ginger and the little bit of sweet from the sugar on the ginger. Then I get to eat the ginger. Nice way to end the evening.
The only one I got that I have not liked was one I picked up last year. An Egg Nog tea. I know sounds strange but I like nutmeg and I thought it would be pretty good. I found it did not have much flavor. Never know until you try.
