Ok, I am not Mary Poppins, and I am most certainly not British, but I love tea (as well as coffee).  I drink both hot and cold sweet tea, and I have found a little place in a suburb not far from my home, which serves tea, and if I wasn’t such a coffee drinker too, it could rival Starbucks any day of the week. (Did I say that? (In my female version of Steve Urckel))
What flavor? 
When I was a little girl, the only flavors of tea out there in the United States were black tea, and if you wanted a little bit more flavor, then it was the black tea, plus peppermint, chamomile, lemon, or orange.  My mother used to only drink Lipton Tea.  Since then, she has learned to drink other teas, and I have learned to appreciate the different teas and their health benefits.  There is black, Oblong, red, white, and green leaf teas to name a few.  My father, on the other hand, is a coffee drinker all the way, but hates Starbucks, which I introduce to him two months ago, he cannot get past paying over $3 for a cup of coffee.

Brewing tea

Brewing tea for some cultures is an art form within itself.  The Japanese call their tea ceremonies, Way of tea, and it is the ceremonial preparation and presentation of Matcha or powered green tea. They use Buddhism as the influence of this ceremony, and they have both a formal and an informal ceremony.  You can read the rest here. They are often performed by a Geisha.  The Chinese call their ceremony the “Art of Tea.” They have only formal side of making and presenting the tea.  In fact, the Japanese, as well as the Korean and the Vietnamese are all influenced by the Chinese version of this ceremony.  The British have high tea, and to make a proper tea that the British Royalty will enjoy, it requires 8 steps.  I am an old fashioned American woman, and I take my tea with a tea bag, or brew my tea in my Keurig Machine.  I use lemon (if I have it) and sugar or honey, cold or hot.  There is also the American Southern way of serving tea.  I believe it is similar to the British.

Tea basket Sale…  

It does not matter if you like tea, coffee, or both (with a little hot chocolate on the side), the tea basket is great for holding these items, but as I always tell everyone, go outside the basket.  That means, go outside what the name implies.  Here are some Tea Basket ideas:
