On Thursday Amanda, Aaliyah and I were out and stopped in at an adorable shop called Betsy's Yarn and Tea Shop. They had a large assortment of teas and a collection of tea pots and cups/saucers in different colors. There was also a selection of yarns there. Of course I pretty much went straight to the yarn, while Amanda went for the tea pots. After looking through the yarn that they had I found a color that I really liked!
This is the yarn that I bought, though I haven't decided on what I am going to make with it.
The tea that I bought is part of a collection, called Be Active Teas, that is sold at the store, and is distributed The Republic of Tea. I got Get Burning: Herb Tea for Metabolism, and it is Hot Cinnamon Ginger. Since cinnamon is supposed to help with weight loss and I really like cinnamon flavored stuff, I thought it was the perfect kind for me to get. Besides the tea being cinnamon, it can be served as a hot tea or as iced tea depending on the season.
