Tea, Please

In honor of the April 15 tea parties around the nation, I thought I'd share with you my ode to tea. Personally, I'm a fan of a good old fashioned cuppa joe, unflavored please. Tea doesn't really do it for me, despite my southern roots. Making tea wallets, however, does seem to be my cup of tea.



For a non-tea drinker, I certainly have a large supply of tea, and quite a wide variety as well. What can I say? Tea comes in pretty packages that lure me in. Can't quite bring myself to enjoy drinking it though.




I found a tutorial for the wallets on Christy's Creations. They are actually pretty easy to put together. My big change was to use an elastic hair tie rather than the closure she suggested.



Turns out the tea wallets are good for Emergen-C packets as well.




As you can see, I've made quite a few of these wallets. Whenever I give one away, I load it up with tea, thereby significantly reducing my stash. Eventually I'll get rid of all the nasty tea leaves, unless a pretty package calls my name again. Besides, isn't it patriotic to be devoted to coffee? I'm just trying to do my part.

I love these. My friends drink tea. I, like you, would prefer a nice black cup of coffee. I'm going to make some of these. Maybe for Christmas gifts. I love them. They are sooo cute.

Thanks!

I'm not a big tea fan. I do like hot Lipton tea with a little sugar and honey! Try it..it's yum!
