Saw this on Design Sponge. What a cool teapot from CB2!
On a day where marriage equality is everywhere in the news it seems appropriate to share that Brisbane-based tea brand Slurp has launched a campaign titled “EqualiTEA.” 100% of the profits will be donated to the Queensland Association for Healthy Communities (www.qahc.org.au) and to the Marriage Equality documentary “Love Like Yours.”
DR MATTHEW HYND, Chief Tea Guru at SLURP, said the idea was to help raise his company’s profile while promoting the issue of Marriage Equality.
The EqualiTEAs have awesome names like: Uncle Gertrude, Haus of Fierce, Unleash Me, Love Box, No Tea No Shade, Queen Bea and Love Like Yours.
Check out www.slurptea.com.au for announcements on the EqualiTEA campaign.
Teacups are in! Just take a look at these cute shirts from The Gap. They’ve been everywhere! Abby told me she saw it. Then, I saw the teacup dress on the NYCRecessionista blog.
And, then it showed up in my mailbox!! Happy Birthday to me, thanks mom & dad! I thought you fellow tea-lovers needed to know about this cute tea fashion.
Dear friends, Are you really prepared for Blizzard Nemo? Abby is in the 18″+ inch zone and I’m in the 24″+ area. Oh my! I’ve seen a lot of preparedness posts on social media, so I thought I’d add one of my own. Don’t forget to make TEA! (or coffee, if that’s your thing) Heat up the kettle now or start our cold-brew method.
You’ll likely enjoy some pre-made tea in the fridge should the power go out. Unless you have a gas stove. I’m wishing I had a gas stove about now! Just remember: to keep your food fresh and cold in a power outage try to limit the number of times you open the fridge door.
It is also a good day for baking/cooking. Looking for a good recipe? Try Abby’s lemon tea squares. YUM! Most of all, stay safe & warm!
Yeah, yeah this blog is about tea, but who can talk about tea ALL the time? A girl’s gotta eat too, right? But, I still need tea too! So what you have here is a post about pairing tea with food. Very informal. I know what I like and try to pair things that I like that I think will go well together. Done. Easy peasy!
It all started with some beautiful cranberry herbal tea. I made that then realized I needed a little something to go along with it as well. And what goes better with tea than my other favorite thing, crepes?!
Luckily for me I happened to have a stash of Stonewall Kitchen Traditional Crepe Mix! Yum! And so easy, thank goodness. I also had a can of pears on hand as well as some brown sugar and cinnamon. Just for fun I put some bacon in the oven too! It made my house smell like bacon heaven.
By the way, the image on the container above was taken by the one and only Katie! Pretty cool, eh?
So I got to work. For the crepe mix, the only additional items you need are two eggs and a cup of water. Check. Check! It took no time at all to get everything ready to go. First I dumped the pears into a pot with about half the water in the can, and some brown sugar and a pinch of cinnamon (very specific measurements). Then I mixed everything together for the crepes. By that time I was about done with my first cup of tea! Time for another.
About 15 minutes later everything was ready! It all went together perfectly! The tartness of the tea was matched and balanced by the sweet pear filling and the salty bacon. So tasty and satisfying! Do you have any tea and food pairings that you love? Let us know! Katie and I will give it a go and you might find a post about it.
Today Design Sponge is featuring some very cool tea things, including this owl tea set. Love!
Check out their post, and these cute owls from Pearl River!
January tends to be a time of both reflecting on the past year and planning for the year ahead. In this spirit Abby & I thought we’d take a look at our most popular posts as part of planning for our the future or our blog. You liked a mix of our tea reviews and other tea-themed posts. We’ll keep both coming. Please take a look at our most popular posts below and check back for more to come!

What a cute story from a tea room & british imports store in Woodstck, CT. They anticipate that news of the royal baby will be good for business since memorabilia from the royal wedding flew off the shelves!
Congratulations to Will and Kate!

Katie and I would like to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving this year!
Here at delecTEAble we have a lot to be thankful for. We are so thankful for our wonderful readers and for the terrific experiences that writing this blog has given us. I’m not sure about Katie on this one, but I’m also thankful for pics of cute cupcakes everywhere these days. Seriously, how cute is this little turkey cupcake???
And of course, as always, we are thankful for TEA!
Speaking of tea (as if we really talk about anything else here), remember to slurp down some green or herbal tea to help with the digestion of your big holiday meal. Although, it isn’t easy, try to save room for tea, you will be thankful for THAT later
Below are a couple of links to articles that outline the benefits of tea when it comes to digestion and how some teas are better at the job than others. Green tea and many herbal teas such as camomile and peppermint seem to be the leaders for teas that help the tummy. Hope you find these links helpful. If you feel like it, let us know what you are thankful for. Stuff like that makes us smile and will probably make you smile too!
