    Sounds like a super event! We love tea, and drink it every morning. My wife likes to sweeten hers with sugar. I actually prefer my tea without any sweetener (or milk, or lemon) so I drink it “black.” Fun post! Thanks so much.

      My hubby and mom-in-law prefer black. But I love my beverages with sugar. Great to know that you enjoyed reading the post!

    I’ve never been to a tea tasting party but I am sure I’d love it. There’s a place here called Teavana that has wonderful teas and they’ll go through all their teas letting you smell them but it would be impossible to sample them all. I’m sure they wouldn’t have the time. How fun though.
    I use to drink coffee all the time now I prefer tea. I just think it tastes better. I wish I had been there. I would have had so much fun. Thanks for sharing.

      Even I prefer tea now. It makes you feel so light and fresh and you can experiment with so many kinds! My favorites are roselle, oolong and lemongrass!

      Purabi, a cup of hot tea is very relaxing especially in this winter! Thank you so much for all your delicious recipes. Only yesterday I came across your site and you can’t imagine how happy I am. Thanks again and God bless.

    Purabi, it was fun to “see” your tea tasting experience. I’d never heard of drinking tea out of a glass and it sounds like something I’d like to do. The blooming tea leaves in the bottom of the carafe were simply beautiful and added to the sensory element — no wonder tea is so relaxing and good for you, besides the health benefits. Lovely post!

    Purabi – this looks like so much fun. Being from mumbai, I love seeing any posts that give me a peek into the foodie happenings in mumbai. Although not a regular tea drinker, I like the sound of all these different teas.
    I will admit though,at the risk of sounding like a bad commenter, that Splenda (or any artificial sweetner) is a bad ingredient and does a lot of damage to health. The industry seems to promote it for marketing purposes. There is a lot of research out there proving the harms caused by these sweetners. I tend to use other natural sweetners even if they are “real sugar” like honey or maple syrup – because they are natural.

      Purabi, according to you this really looks like fun to try all the different teas and snacks also to meet everyone. I’m a tea drinker and I drink my tea only with 2 percent milk and NO sugar or sweetener whatsoever; I’m a diabetic. I rarely drink coffee and that’s only when I don’t have a choice.
      I don’t use Splenda or any artificial sweeteners for the same reason as you said. There are so many things that we are using that’s not good for our health but sometimes we just don’t know; what we do know we have to avoid. Although I’m diabetic I use a little sugar, Maple syrup or pure honey sometimes like in cakes and ice creams which I do make myself. Thank you Archana for letting everyone know about this.
