Tea Time

One of the gifts I received for Christmas was a beautiful box of teas...not in tea bags...an assortment of loose tea.  Along with the teas was a mug and an "infuser" all by Teavana.

The only tea I have had has always been in a bag so using an infuser and measuring out the loose tea was a whole new thing for me.  I mean really, how complicated could it be?
So I made myself a cup of tea, Lemon Ginger specifically.  And to tell you the truth, I really wasn't impressed with the taste.  However, it was when I went to put the self sealing foil pouch away that my eyes spotted "the directions."

Who knew that you were supposed to steep the tea for "x" amount of minutes?  WHo knew that each type of tea has the "steep time" right on the box/bag?  Who knew I wasn't supposed to leave the tea bag in until I finished it?  Who knew that I wasn't supposed to be dunking by old tea bag?  Who knew that by following "the directions" I would eliminate the bitter aftertaste?

Well, let me tell you that once I followed the directions, each cup of tea was absolutely AWESOME!!!

Don't Fence Me In



These three are easy to identify.  They all have white markings on their noses...not just around their noses.  So when they come to visit, I watch to see just where they go.  They like to explore the area around the bird feeders.

At first, they were a tad apprehensive, since the "bird sanctuary" we created was not there last Winter.  I think they bed down on the South side of our property.

However, this next bunch stays on the East side of our property.  They are the fence jumpers.  They bed down in the spot I cleared for myself to observe the eagles.  I walked in there Tuesday morning and there was deer poop everywhere!  Those little "fence jumpers"!!
