I received this box of tea bags from a friend and it is very good tea. Isn't that little leaf the cutest thing?!

When I found out that the small trays to use with the bags could be ordered, I just had to have some! I think they are really neat....I love to use them!

Oh, and my fortune was "You will soon be honored by someone you respect" :)
