Tea Newsletter ~ December 2009

Hello everyone,

Can you believe it is only two weeks until Advent starts?    For all of you in the Colorado Springs area, I will host a Let’s Do Tea party at my home on Saturday, December 12, 1-3 PM.  If you will be visiting the area, let me know – you are most welcome!  There will be a door prize drawing and extra chances to win for anyone who brings a friend.  If you can’t attend but are running low on your favorite teas, let me know and I can add your order to that party – if you live in Colorado Springs you will get reduced shipping!

Advent is full of wonderful feasts!  Why not celebrate St. Nicholas Day with Peppermint Bark Black Tea and candy canes for your family?  Or St. Lucy Day with Drop of Tea Cookies and a cup of hot After 7 Rooibos Tea for your neighbors?  Invite them over for dessert and candlelight.  Lovely!
