A Total Tea Experience

Posted: December 22, 2005
by: T.Alexander

When the weather turns chilly I often find myself brewing an afternoon cup of tea. On days when the sky is overcast and I need a little extra comfort, I fill my favorite mug with cinnamon and orange spice tea.

It may sound silly, but especially when I drink tea, the cup is an important part of the total experience. An over-sized mug is a must for strong flavored teas and only a delicate cup will do for Jasmine tea.

In the spirit of the holidays, Morning Coffee and Afternoon Tea blog has a fun recipe for Candy Cane Tea. This tea definitely calls for a snowman mug!Snowmanmugsgreen

1/2 stick of cinnamon
1/2 t grated orange peel - dried or fresh
1 t tea leaves

Steep cinnamon, orange peel and tea leaves together for 5-minutes. Pour into a cup. Drop in one small candy cane.

According to research, the chemical composition of coca leaves is more complete and rich in calories, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, fibre, ash, minerals (calcium, phosphorous, iron, potassium, magnesium, sodium, ascorbic acid, etc.) and vitamins A, C and E than other food plants and infusions in common use such as coffee, tea, camomile, etc. Thanks to this research, it is nowadays recognized that the coca leaf contains more proteins (19.9 per cent) than meat (19.4 per cent) and far more calcium (2,191 per cent) than condensed milk, and that it is richer in vitamin B-1 (276 per cent) than fresh carrots
