A gift from Emma

I have the most amazing friend in the mail.  Her name is Emma and she lives in Ireland. She sends me tea bags that I have never seen or tasted before.  What a great friend to have!

This morning I made this yummy Peppermint & Licorice tea from Pukka.  Love the flavor of these two together.  At first I had my worry but, the peppermint takes over all the fear. The hint of licorice is perfect, not to bold at all.

If you are a tea lover like Emma & I, this is one to try.

I have been the worst pen pal for months.  When I sat & drink this tasty tea, all I could think about was, what a wonder friendship I have with Emma, she keeps writing me even when I have had to stop for awhile.  I am so lucky that she understands those little secrets I keep with not having enough time or extra money to send out things every month.  Those special friendships mean so much and we don’t always let those special friends know that they are important and thank you for not giving up on me.

A gift comes in many different ways.  I have been gifted with a friend who has a big heart and loves so many things that I do.  I would have never gotten this gift is it wasn’t for a simple hi on her blog. You can find her here puddlesidemusings.wordpress.com (if I did this right..lol)

Emma, thanks for being my friend!

  1. It’s true. Good friends stick with us, and always forgive us! But peppermint and liquorice?? It would take a lot of persuading that it was a good combination!!

  2. Aw, thank you! You’re so sweet! 🙂
    Even if you don’t have the time to write back at the moment, I still enjoy sending mail out so I’ll keep at it – plus, it’s fun sending out obscure tea flavours I might come across! xD I was unsure about peppermint and licorice too, it sounds crazy but it works!

  3. Oh baby! I love the peppermint and licorice combo! In the US, Choice brand has P&L and the Yogi brand has an Egyptian P&L which has warming spices in it. I’ve heard the licorice adds a sweet taste which eliminates the desire to add sugar. I know it does for me!

    Nice to get to share a cup of tea across the miles… that’s what friends are for!
