    White Tea a Gift

    I received a gift of Silver needle Jasmine tea from a friend and thought that I would share my experience with you.

    It had been a very hectic day and when I arrived home I was greeted by this tin of tea. As I opened the tea, I had to stop and admire how beautiful the tea appeared. The needles were fluffy and light and the scent from the tin was clean, crisp floral scent of jasmine. It was refreshing and made me anticipate making and tasting this tea.

    I am so fond of white tea, and this was no exception. It is a very light yellow tea in color with a light floral aroma when infused. This tea is a mixture of white tea notes, with a slightly vegetal tone, but there is a strong jasmine taste. This is a pleasant tea, not bitter and definitely worth trying.

    Keep in mind that white tea contains the least caffeine of all types of tea. It is considered to be one of the healthiest teas to drink.

    Jasmine white as well as many other fine white teas can be found at Adagio Teas.

    It's A Mystery To Me

    Fall is here and many are planning their Halloween Parties.

    I love a good Mystery Party and have had several Mystery Tea Parties over the years. It is fun to get a group of friend together over afternoon tea, in costume and pretend to be someone else for the afternoon.

    I have even served high tea and had a few select friends over to solve a mystery over all the courses.

    It is so much fun when your guests get into playing their roles as you gather clues. I hope you will have as much fun as I have planning a Mystery Tea Party for Halloween, or anytime. For a ready made mystery party just for Halloween we have one for you. Check out the left collumn.

    There is always a good time to have a tea party. You never need a reason, just a pot a tea and friends.

    You may want to serve these delicious Apple Cinnamon Scones. I love how the kitchen smells when I make these. Here's the recipe.

    Featured Herb: Echinacea

    Last month we learned how to make a tincture using echinacea. I wanted to ammend one of the instructions. The leaves are to covered with alcohol, if you notice the level of liquid has evaporated to expose the leaves add more alcohol.

    Here is a recipe
    You will need a sterile jar
    Dried Echinacea root
    100 proof alcohol
    Cheese cloth lined strainer
    Blue or amber bottles with an eye dropper

    Place enough dried Echinacea into the jar to fill to the top
    Cover with alcohol and place the lid on. Take notice if the alcohol is no longer covering the leaves. Your must add more alcohol and keep the leaves covered at all times until you decant them.

    Let this mixture sit in the jar (preferably in a dark place) for 2 to 6 weeks shaking the jar once a day

    To decant use the cheese cloth lined strainer to strain the liquid
    Fill jars, label and date them

    Please note that herbal remedies are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration. I make no claim to be a doctor or an accredited herbalist. I am an individual who believes we take too many pills and too many antibiotics. I believe I have found useful natural ways to maintain health or useful remedies for certain illness. I encourage you to do your own research and consult your medical professional.

    Here is my recent experience with a tincture of Echinacea and Goldenseal (also an herb). Not having time to decant my recipe in process, I purchased a tinctue from Mountain Rose Herbs. I wanted to be prepared in case someone in the family should come down with a cold.

    I turned out to be the first patient. Everyone just knows when they are getting something.

    This came on fast and by evening my throat was literly on fire. I squirted half a dropper full of the tincture toward the back of my throat. It tasted quite awful but again my throat was on fire.

    I could have added the herbs to a tea, but I wanted instant help.

    It did give me instant relief and I was able to fall asleep. I woke up twice through the night and used the tincture again. I was careful to get the dropped far enough back to miss my tongue and hit my throat.

    In the morning my throat was so much better I didn't use the tincture again.

    An adult dose is 2 ml or ½ teaspoon up to 5 times per day.
    For a child's dose divide the childs weight by 150. A 50 pound child would take 1/3 the adult dose 50/150=1/3
