M is for Manatea

M is for Manatea. (I know, you think I spelled manatee wrong, but this is a very special manatee and that is why we spell it "manatea".)

I'm not a big loose-leaf tea drinker, but I do have some on hand and some of it is pretty tasty. Yesterday I decided to try out the Manatea my sis in law sent me a while back. You fill him up with loose-leaf tea, hang him on the side of your tea cup, and then he "leaks" into your cup. :0)

Apparently, according to the box, this guy's name is "Fred" (or at least I'd like to think so...). Fred the Manatea didn't seem to mind his boiling water bath yesterday afternoon and brewed me a very nice cup of tea. Now if only I had a cup that looked like a hot tub or swimming pool.

  3. :) I bought some tea today called "Breathe Right". It's supposed to promote good respiratory function. I'm not really totally sold that it will really help anything, but I will try anything at this point. I had a cup this morning and it was really yummy. It leaves a sweet taste in my throat after I swallow it and I don't need any sugar in it at all. We need to get together for a cup of tea soon.
