chore tea ...

... or chai tea?
I think I'll have the chai tea, thank you!


hmmmmmm!


"Masala Chai"
it says peppercorn on the list of ingredients
and I can taste a subtle kick of pepper


maybe that's what I needed to get these chores done
- a kick!


but first I'll have to put my camera down


and quit my lolligagging


***

... why don't you go lolligag with my tea friends listed in my Tea on Tuesday list in the sidebar?

and today's tea was brought to me (and you) by my friend Teresa and her tea company 4ceylontea.com

I'm trying to imagine what fennel and peppercorns would taste like in chai...I'd like to try it!

I think I'm going to try making chai one of these days. It sounds wonderful. And you did have a lot of laundry there! I can't possibly imagine folding that many things at one time. Guess that's why I do laundry every couple of days (grin). Glad you took a few minutes to enjoy tea with us, though. Happy Tea Tuesday.

PS. Just saw the word verification: spoonte!

Peppercorns may purify the blood - but I don't like them in my tea!!! LOL But, I guess I would take that tea over chores any time!!!

Gayle...... that,s me said...

Chore tea lol ! I have to have tea BEFORE chores, sometimes DURING chores and definitely AFTER chores, it's the only way they will get done. Have a lovely day , once the chores are out of the way.

Hi Kimmie - Friday at work. Just made myself a cup of tea, thought of you so "wandered down the hall" to say "HI!" Enjoy your weekend!

Glad you liked the tea. I like the Chai when it's a cold night...it does have a bit of a 'kick' to it. Your photos are all so lovely!
