Hi there :) I have hit the jackpot here! Love your site, love your stuff! I drink a lot of peppermint tea and happen to have an excess of leaves on hand as well as some delicious apricots (lots-received as a gift). So I was looking for inspiration and was rewarded with this awesome recipe. I can already taste this dish!!! YUM... Can't wait to make it :) Thank you so much guys...will be back regularly! Oh, and SallyBR, thanks for the link to that cookbook. I'm going to check it out too!
Good info. on green tea. Green tea is so beneficial in so many ways as you've pointed out. As far as bitterness, perhaps a lot of the times it is because people are using water which is either still boiling or just plain too hot. I try to keep it between 160F and 180F and always use purified or filtered water for best taste. I love all of green tea's healthful benefits, but especially the fact that it has been shown to improve our brain's functioning! Thank you for your article. Keep on spreading the word!

Darlene, what a lovely site this is...all of it! From your beautiful pictures, recipes, information. You document everything beautifully. I love to learn something new every day. Today, I learned about tea pets! I love the figurines, the story behind them and the reason to have one. I never knew. Must get one asap :) Would love to share a cup of tea with you one day! Marilyn, the current scandal is so involved. From climate change to wages to deforestation, definitely trying times. You can get a lot of information on the subject by googling "what challenges is the tea industry facing?" You'll be reading for a while, lol. Thanks again, Darlene, for this great site!!!

Loved reading this and you have posted some awesome pictures! Lucky kids :) Definitely agree with Lois about researching and educating yourself first (as you did) especially when unfamiliar with the herbs. Hilarious that the kids ate the rose hips, but totally understandable :) mecala www.elegantserenity.com

Hi Aenne :) Just wanted to say that I am enjoying your lovely site, and now that I have discovered it, I intend to stop by every now and then. I'll have a lovely cup of tea in my hand as I sit back and relax while doing so. Like you, I love my herbal teas. I usually try to have a cup of chamomile in the evenings. Tea definitely does bring moments of grace to our chaotic lives!
