Although I'm more of a coffee fan, I enjoy the occasional cup. My parents, however, love the stuff. So much so that they thought they might combine two of their passions- tea, and charity. So, even though they're both retired, they started a new company. 100% of the profits go to support CareNow, which helps support fundamental healthcare in rural Africa- a country where some are so poor, they don't even own clothes.

Anyway, their website just went live, so feel free to check it out:

Okay, I'll convert it to not-spam. How do you make your tea? Any particular type of pot, or do you use tea bags? We've discovered a french press works well for both coffee and tea.

I am a big fan of Yixing teapots. When time is a factor I just use a teacup and saucer though.

Oh, and at school I drink freeze dried powdered green tea in a bottle of water. Jackie Chan Xtra Green brand.

Your conversion didn't work on the initial post. Smile
Silly Rabbit, no one with anything on the ball makes tea from pot but if I did it would be Blueberry Kush.

Way cool. Give your folks a hug from me.

It's a nice retirement project, that's for sure.

Again, I apologize to those who consider this spam. My parents are working really hard on this project, and it's for a good cause, so I feel obligated to mention it. Some of their suppliers are from Ethiopia and hoping to support themselves and improve their community.

Check out some of the blooming flower teas- you can even use them as decorative potpourrie after you're done brewing them. Very cool, I'd never even heard of that before.
