HOSPITALITY MADE SIMPLE

How many times have you had an unexpected visitor and had nothing to offer them to eat or drink? That does not have to be the case. Tea is a great drink to have on hand for that unexpected visitor or friend who called and “just needed to come over and talk.” Tea & Tradition’s teas will stay fresh for up to a year in our sealed bags. You can store several easily, in our bags, in your cabinet or pantry and have a nice variety to offer your friend, neighbor or occasional stranger who happens upon your front door.

I have recently discovered these great mixes at the grocery store for muffins, brownies and cookies. The muffins require only milk. How easy is that? They cost between 94¢ to $1.58 and are DELICIOUS. I keep them in my pantry, so when I have unexpected visitors and we sit down for tea I can easily offer them a sweet treat to go with it. Something warm from the oven really makes people feel special not to mention a cup of delicious tea.

It does not have to be fancy! People just want to feel special. Tea tends to slow us down and allows us to focus on our guest. People come over for a lot of reasons and sometimes we do not even know what those are, but going the extra mile can really minister to an unspoken need.

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. 1 Peter 4:8-9

When hospitality becomes an art it loses its very soul. Max Beerbohm

Recently I was visiting in Georgia and mailed a bag of the new creme brulee tea to my friend in Mo. When I returned she visited me and brought the tea for me try. She said it was to die for and she was absolutely right. It was so soothing to sit and visit and sip our tea. A cup of tea always seems to soothe and relax a person. karen_baldwin@wildblue.net

I've found the Kennesaw Mtn. tea for breakfast is great! I've ordered Hibiscus Punch and Peach Pizazz for ice tea for friends and family.
