When visiting Kenya, the women and men brewed up Chai tea in an enormous burnt kettle over coals to savor with each meal. Last year when reading Three Cups of Tea, the theme of three cups of tea a day confirmed that the practice contains a way not only to inspire physical health, but spiritual and social health as well.
In winter, I brew up a cup of tea each afternoon. And I’d like to share some with you through this season in a big communal “Tea Party.”
How it works: I have decided to throw together a tea exchange involving anyone & everyone who wants to sign up. The exchange will hopefully be complete before the first day of Spring, in late March. When you sign up, you’ll agree to mail three samples of loose leaf or tea bags to someone else.
Sign up by sending me your address. I will then make a big old list of these addresses, and send the list to the first person on the list as well as the tea. The last person will send three samples to me. If you blog, it might be fun to post about each cup of tea and, if applicable, put a link up to the person you are sending it to or received your sample from. Email the following info to me by January 18th! •

Can’t wait to see how three cups of Tea bless you!
