Tea Time

Today I am linking up to Julia over at Hooked On Houses for her weekly "Hooked On Fridays" round-up.

A few months back, one of the anesthesiologists I work with brought in a bunch different types of teas to share. He frequently goes to Big Lots and buys any teas he thinks would be interesting. He is a real advocate for drinking tea for its health benefits.

I loved this St. Dalfour Organic Lemon Tea. To sweeten it a little the doctor gave me some Agave nectar. Agave Nectar is very good for you and it a sweetener with a low glycemic index. It has a very light taste and the combination with tea is delicious.

Well, if you have ever shopped at Big Lots you know that if you see something you better buy all you want because the next time you look for the item they will be gone. I traveled around to at least 4 Big Lots in my general area and had no luck finding any more of this tea. Finally, I did an internet search and found that I could buy both the St. Dalfour tea and Agave Nectar on Amazon. I have been "hooked on" having a cup of tea every day--even though it is summer. I fix my tea and have a Bible devotional time. Very relaxing!

Be sure to visit Julia's Blog Hooked on Houses and the Hooked on Friday party.

Also, head over to Life as Mom and check out Frugal Fridays.

What did we ever do without the internet? I know I search nearly daily for this or that.

It is good that you are drinking tea. I was going to but I guess the summer just got the best of me.

I love drinking tea. I will have to check out Big Lots next time I get by that way. And I love the idea of combining tea time with devotional time!

Thanks for sharing this.
