tea-steeping guide

WATERAlways use the best water possible. If the water tastes good, so will your tea. If that is not the case, then bottled spring water is a nice alternative. Heat the water on the stove top or in an electric kettle to the desired temperature. A microwave oven is not recommended.TEMPERATUREHeating the water to the correct temperature is arguably one of the most important factors in making a great pot of tea.

artful arrangements

1. Natural ElementsIncorporate fragrant boughs and colorful fruits, as well as other natural elements, in wintry arrangements. All are perfect for cold-season centerpieces, such as a mix of evergreens, holly berries, pinecones, and, for added drama, roses from a florist and apples and cut pomegranates from the market.2. Pumpkin VaseFit a glass or plastic container inside a clean, hollowed-out pumpkin (either miniature or full size), and place the bouquet inside, with stems trimmed to fit. Water-drenched floral foam in the bottom of the container will add anchorage and will keep the arrangement fresh longer.3. A Rosy TopiaryStart with long-stemmed roses, filler flowers of choice, and greenery. Bundle the bouquet tightly with rubber bands or twine. Fit a shallow urn with dampened floral foam, and place the bouquet securely in…
