Good morning all! Before I get into today's exciting blog, I wanted to take a moment to remember 9/11. I, like millions of others, have that day and those images seared into my memories. It was a day that would forever change America and the way we view our freedom. It made us realize we are all vulnerable. It's now been over 10 years since that day and I want to remember those that gave their lives and thank those men and women who continue to give their serve and protect, and at times, give their lives for their fellow man. The firefighters, military and yes, our police officers. These people continue to strive to make America the best it can be and protect and serve those of us when in times of need. I for one thank you as does the entire Sterling Tea team. So regardless of your political views, take a moment today to remember all of those who have given their lives in service and those who continue to do so.
Now, I have to share with you that yesterday the Dallas Market opened and I was given the opportunity to work the first day show as Brenda had other commitments. I was excited because we would be introducing our limited edition holiday tea line and and an amazing tea maker that can change how you brew tea!
The new Craftea™ Maker is a fantastic machine that makes brewing tea, well, to be honest, idiot proof! You put your water, tea, and whatever other goodies (sugar, milk), press a few buttons and VOILA! a perfect cup of tea.
This tea maker will brew a perfect cup of black, green, oolongs, white, rooibos and herbal tisanes! Just pick the setting you need. One of our favorite things to make in this revolutionary product is a delicious chai latte! After a few trials we perfected the recipe to our liking and I was cranking it out at the Dallas Market. It really was so easy! If you love a good chai latte, skip the lines and make one in your own kitchen with the awesome Craftea™ Maker. Just click the picture and it will take you right to our sale page.
The Lonestar Chai Latte Recipe we use:
2 Tablespoons of Lonestar Chai add more for stronger brew
4oz Milk (we used 2%)
1 Tablespoons of sugar (we like using our jeweled sugar)
Follow the directions on the Craftea™ and use the Quick Chai setting. Pour into your favorite mug and you will be enjoying a perfect chai latte in your own home! This little beauty works with all our chai teas and well duh.. all our teas period!
Before I go, the holidays are fast approaching and we are introducing our limited edition Seasonal Favorites! Scoop them up before they are gone! My personal fav...the Caramel Apple Rooibos.
