After everyone is gone in the morning I do enjoy my tea. Sitting at the kitchen table looking out onto the porch, the fence post with my bird feeder looks so alone until you see, the kitty on the step looking in and realize she is ready for food herself....smart birds..
This morning I am drinking Jasmin tea. I did not know all the benefits this tea might bring, now mind you I know nothing about teas I'm just learning, but this is something I found. Thought you might get a kick out of it and learn a little something too. Again I know nothing, so take this as you will.
