So it's finally here! I'm so excited to share with you, what has been in my head for awhile, but only now is being presented: A Cuppa Tea With Shawna Marie

Some of you may remember that I started to do something like this before, only it was with a pen name. I'm really glad it wasn't my real name then, because it seemed like it was good practice for the real show. Now I am going by my actual name, and I have a better idea of what it's supposed to look like, etc. I'm open to comments to help me to develop the best kind of show!

And what's it all about? It's about having some time that you can make a cup of tea, now and again, sit in your favorite comfortable chair, maybe even in your jammies and enjoy the show. Each "visit" will be about 15 to 20 minutes long --- just enough time to enjoy your tea (or coffee or cocoa) and sit still a little while. We ladies all need a break in our busy days
(the men folk do too, which I'm not minimizing, of course!). I hope this will become a new favorite to many! I hope you will come away inspired, again, and again, and again.

With that, I'd like to present to you the very first show, ask that you subscribe and share it with others, and may this be a momentous occasion that you are taking part in! I invite you to share in the comments, so that it is more like a visit with you too! Thanks for joining me!

Just wanted to share a nice discovery with my faithful readers. Last night I was up into the wee hours of morning, and a cup of tea sounded like just-the-thing for me.

I was going to have "orange and spice" when I thought, "How would it be if I mixed it with a camomile tea bag?"

Well the results were great, and I wanted you to know! Because if you are like me, you know camomile is a good promoter of relaxation and sleep, but is not an amazing flavor at all. It seems to me that camomile was meant to be ONE of the ingredients --- not the main one, or the only one.

This is why I like "Sleepytime Tea" as well. Whoever blended that tea product did a good job in making it taste good while giving all the benefits of various herbs put together. None-the-less, I keep camomile tea around --- and now I know a good way to drink it! You may enjoy it too!

Simply put one Twinings Pure Camomile tea bag together in the same mug with one Biglow Orange and Spice tea bag, a spoon of sugar and hot water. Let it steep, stir it, and WA-LA!

You have a nice tea to sip on and a way to relax.
