We had a lot of rain drizzles...typical spring time! There's not much I could do in a wet garden. Cooler days like these mean.. time for a nice warm herbal tea. This particular tea cup does it's service well.
With the lid on, it can brew and keep your tea warm. It also got a removable porcelain strainer.
We have been growing our own herbs in the garden for this purpose. Homemade herbal tea means you have a way of knowing exactly what was mixed in your tea drink. With loose herbs, you would need a strainer so you won't be drinking bits with your tea.
Various herbs blend makes a very interesting tea flavour. Today, my cup of tea was with Chrysanthemum flower, berries, orange peels, and rock sugar. It taste wonderful:) I simple lift the porcelain strainer within, sit it on top of the upside down lid, and I have my delicious tea drink!
This is definitely a very handy type of tea cup for homemade loose herbal tea. Do you have any favourite tea cups? or tea mix?
I hope you had a wonderful Easter celebration. We enjoyed ours with some friends over at our place. They also brought me a big tray of various herbs seedlings from their garden...Oh...I'm so happy and grateful! So, there will be lots of herbal tea ingredients to look forward to:)
