the daily Starr share it saturday

Several years ago we were visiting our favorite little mountain getaway hotel – The Old Edwards Inn in Highlands, NC.

Go here just once and you get it – everything about this quaint mountain escape makes me happy!

And this tea is no exception.

Tea Forte White Ginger Pear

This tea seriously made me change my outlook on tea – for the rest of my life.

I’m not kidding. Once you try this tea, you will want no other tea.

I like to add a bit of honey to mine and drink it hot. One of the coolest things is how this tea comes bagged.

These flavor infused triangle bags sit in your hot water, one cup at a time. They are cute and perfect!

And honestly, I had no idea about the background or history of this amazing tea until I read this tonight online:

About Tea Forte White Ginger Pear White Tea – 16 Filterbags

White tea is regarded by many tea connoisseurs as something to be reserved for special occasions. It’s rarer and less processed than other teas, and the low oxidation of its leaves means it holds more natural elements of the plant. White Ginger Pear Tea is a soothingly fragrant and alluring ginger tea that brings together several natural ingredients from around the world. Contained in eco-friendly filterbags, it’s easy to prepare, and ideal for special occasions. Its core ingredient is rare White Peony tea, handpicked and dried in the crisp mountainous air of Fujian, China. This is harmonized by Polish herbs, Iranian mallow, and Chinese pear and ginger, each adding its own voice without drowning out the floral-sweet bass note of the tea. These wonderful ingredients are contained in 16 individually wrapped filterbags. Each White Ginger Pear Tea filter is made with natural, unbleached paper that’s 100% recyclable.

This sweet White Peony tea is a creation of Tea Forté. Starting out in Massachusetts in 2003, the company began with a highly stylized product line based on traditional Japanese tea drinking ceremonies, intended to “elevate a cup of tea into an extraordinary experience for all your senses.” Today, they present an unparalleled variety of handcrafted teas and tea accessories with sumptuously decorated packaging. Enjoyed in over 35 countries, their products can be found in the most prestigious restaurants, hotels, resorts and luxury retailers, making them ultimate ambassadors of the tea-drinking experience.

Annnnnddd I just discovered tonight you can get 16 tea bags for only $7.50 online! That’s way cheaper than I’ve paid before. And if you sign up for their email list, you can get an additional 10% off your order.

I wish I were getting paid to tell you all this, but I’m not 🙂 I just want to spread the tea love, y’all.

My nose is all clogged up and I can hardly breathe with allergies and sinus stuff. I’m headed home to fix my favorite tea.
