Tea Leaf Reading

It's 2011 and I'm turning over a new leaf.  Not really.  I'm just drinking it. I discovered this delicious tea last month while I was in Neiman's looking for Christmas gifts.  Needless to say, it's a luxury tea (read: not cheap).  Moving on...

Meet Tea Forte, my new favorite indulgence.  I believe Republic of Tea just broke up with me, gasp!  So far, my favorite flavors are Coco Truffle, which is a caffeine-free herbal blend; and Hazelnut Truffle, a super rich black tea.  Holy I-Couldn't-Believe-Tea-Could-Taste-Like-Dessert!  Again, moving on...

The tea bag infusers are actually little hand crafted fabric pyramids with a tiny leaf tag handle.  You just sit them in your cup with hot water and let them steep.  But, don't put them in the microwave-- there's wire in the little handle.  Tea Forte offers infusers for hot tea, iced tea, and cocktails. Lemon Grass Mint Mojitos-- can you imagine? Yuhhh-um!  You can also purchase custom teaware with a little hole in the top specially designed for the little pyramids.  Soooo cute!

Anyhoo, each of the infuser packages had a little leaf tucked into it with a warm fuzzy message on it.  So, in the tradition of The Good Chocolate, I thought I'd share them with you.  Enjoy!
