A Scrumptious Vegan Tea Party

Jun 21, 2014 by

Recently, I was asked by a new member if there was any info on our site about a Vegan TeaTime or Vegan Tea Party Treats. Since there wasn’t anything I could find, I decided to write one something for our Vegan Tea Loving Friends.

Tea and Christmas Cookies

Nov 20, 2013 by

Sugar cookies pair will with a variety of teas.  Many people enjoy a spicy tea during the holidays.  If that is you consider serving Market Spice Tea (from Market Spice)  or Christmas Cookie Tea (from Tea Source).  Sugar cookies also go well with a Golden Yunnan (try Rishi Tea ).   The sweet almond taste of the Candy Cane cookie pairs well with a hearty Assam or Keemun black tea.  These teas can be purchased from a...
