Ok... finally...  ::) ::) ::)   I made a batch of this luscious tea. Had to find my teapot (just on the table...  ::)) and clean it out as I hadn't made a pot of tea in a month of Sundays...


Oh my... it is amazing!!! I love the smell of the lemon thyme wafting over the cup... and such notes of flavors intermingled... some strongly dominant... others more subtle... absolutely delish!!

I sweetened my first cup with honey (because I can  ;)) but I think I will try agave next.

Thank you Dear Isa!!!!

:K) :K) :K) :K) :K) :K)

yummmmiiee too ::)
Posted by: Poly, Sunday, December 17, 2006, 9:11pm; Reply: 14
It's just amazing.

First brew I did just plain - nothing added no sweetener: Great! :)

Next batch I added the fresh ginger and lemon: Delicious! :D

Last cup of that batch I added some sugar and a tiny splash of rum - it was awfully cold, rainy, and windy that day ;): Heaven!!! ;D

I've never liked Hibiscus in tea, but in this blend it tastes great. Thank you SO SO much Isa dear! :K)

I must say the lemon thyme is awsome.....
MY mum used to force me to drink regular thyme tea-:X- so I was a bit sceptic - but this tea is a altogether different thing and I might have matured my tastebuds as well - yum.
Emma keeps making new combos - so I never know what kind of tea I get in the afternoon:-D
Thank you so much again Isa- :K) -I wish we could get something like this here.
BTW I have plenty of lemonthyme in the garden- and I use a lot of it in cabbage and appledishes- maybe I should start and harvest it to tea ;-)

yup..yup..yup Hettilein :D that's it ;) ...and the possibilities of all kinds of mixups  is just awesome :D
you might add here a bit more from this..or the other..or thatone...just alltimes a great taste :D....
I love the complete mixing because you have from all a very fine taste...some in the backgrond, some lightly, some a bit more...just yuuummmiee and then when you are moody to add some other things like gingerslices or kumquats, or some cardamom & coriandre, it gives a completely other direction :o
wow just fine and for that bloody weather sometimes, it warms up from the interieure ;D

and all dearles it was a big pleasure for me to share this with U ;) ;D
(dance)(smarty)(whistle)

and think about this awesome deep red colour.....very fine :D

yyyyeeeehhhhaaaa...the tea has arrived this morning from my postman.  I told him last week that I was expecting a parcel of tea from Switzerland and today he brought it to me.  Now...let us all have a cup of tea together and many thanks to Isa.  YUMMILICIOUS!!!! :D:D:D  

Hunh...no red berries in the berry form...but look a little treat.  Oh oh...is it sugar in them?... or something more compliant.  Will have to check that out with caution and only eat one...don't want it to lead to mooooorrrreee.  Like Isa with her delicious gummi bears.  ;);)

Thank you Isa roostersis.  (cheers as she raises her cup of wonderful tea). :K):K)  ((((Big hugs))))

P.S.  Yes, Canada is a bit further...up north that is.  Still waiting for snow too.  'O' for a White Christmas.  Will not be the same without it. :(

Isa,

I picked up the package before I went to work yesterday just to make sure I wouldn't have to wait another day.  Of course, I tried the combo of teas last night and they were great!!!!!!  I'm going to add a little lemon juice in the mix tonight.

Thank you ever so much.  And, what a *Treat* to find real swiss chocolate!!!!!!!!!

Your gift just added to the festivities of the season.  

Joy

Sweet, Sweet Isa!

What a wonderfully fragrant treat came in the mail for me this mornng!   :K) :K)

The inside of my mailbox smelled delicious when I opened the door to it!  I can't tell you how wonderful it felt to receive such a thoughtfully planned package---and all the way from Switzerland!!

I shall treasure your kindness always, and long after the tea and chocolate treat is gone, I shall have little "Mr. Moose" to remind me of it.   :)

Love,

Myra.

My fragrant smelling box of tea and chocolate arrived in today's mail.  I will get some ginger and lemon when I go to town, and then brew up a pot.  We're expecting a cold wave so it came just at the right time.  Thanks so much, Isa

Dear Isa,
Thank you so much for the tea and Swiss chocolates...I'm in awe of your generosity and thoughtfulness.

What a wonderful gift you sent me! I made the recipe and it was delicious, plus I'm enjoying each flavor on its own, too - very soothing and a nice break from all the green tea I've been drinking this winter.

Well, I need a little bit of translation if someone can help a sista out.

1.  What are "fruitshelves"?  I'm picturing bookshelves made of citrus peels that smell wonderful but don't last long *lol*!

2.  What are "alpesherbers"?   I am not even going to attempt a guess at that one.

Thanks in advance for any shard of light anyone can cast my way!
Posted by: Henriette Bsec, Tuesday, September 11, 2007, 7:00pm; Reply: 35
1) my danish/ Isa translation would be ;-D
fruit/ citrus peels

alpesherbes = Herbs from the Alps.

The tea was really yummi both the fruity ones and the ones with herbs :-D

Aaah, okay, I thought the fruitshelves might be citrus "zest" or the entire peel.  And yes, I think you are probably correct about herbs from the Alps!

Next Q:  how big or small are these "bags" we are speaking of?

I think that is my last Q, too, you'll be glad to note!
