Time For Tea

Happy Friday, everyone! We’re on the verge of yet another wintery blast, slated to make it’s frigid appearance later this afternoon. While I wish we had a bit more firewood on hand (the gentleman we hired to bring us wood has only delivered half of the cord and won’t return my calls inquiring about the other half; if any of you Ashevillians know a reliable source of properly seasoned hardwood firewood, I’d love to hear about them), I think we’ll be good for up to 3-4 days, should we loose power again. Otherwise, we’re set!


My “Small Measures with Ashley” post is up on Design Sponge. Today’s topic, “Time for Tea“, explores the multi-sensory benefits of imbibing tea. I’m drinking a cup of my homemade chai as I type! Nothing like a hearty dose of ginger, honey, spices, and black tea to warm up the belly and fortify the immune system!

Stay warm and dry this weekend!

    Ashley, We are getting snow and ice in West TN today too. Our first real dose this winter season. I ordered the ingredients for your homemade chai from Mountain Rose Herbs and have been enjoying it too. I'm definitely hooked. Yep, I think it's tea time in Tennessee too. Have a great weekend.

    I'm a tea fanatic. I think I have at least fifty kinds of tea on hand at them moment but I need to go through them to see what I want, what I need to re-order and what's compost.
    In my laziness to do a proper brewing I've been enjoy Twining's Chai.
