Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

tea from india

my friend who lives in India with her husband on assignment, sent me these teas grown there.  she knows that i simply love to drink tea, and find it as an escape from whatever is going on in my world that day.  Indian tea is said to be grown in the land of sunshine and ice where people practice yoga, meditation and love their land and nature.

i truly understand the idea of mediation and tea drinking, as i love to savor the flavor of the tea and focus on the warmth and pleasing aroma from the tea cup. with the many cold months ahead in Michigan, i have already begun to stock up on my tea packages. reading the information on this package enlightened me to the world of growing tea leaves.

in India, some of the best tea grows in elephant country, which provides the very fertile soil for the tea leaf growth.  master tea tasters select the leaves for their flavor and brightness. the Assam area lies in the north east district of India.

i am thrilled to be drinking such an elite package of tea and thoroughly appreciate her gift to me.
