It's October 31st, one of the best days of the year for kids. But, what's so great about Halloween for adults and what does tea have to do with it anyway? Well, if you're a woman like me, Halloween's gifts always included dress-up fantasies and chocolate.
But what if you just got a last minute command performance invitation to a costume party or you've decided you need to wear a costume to encourage a dearly beloved child who's nervous about dressing up to go trick or treating and you're all out of ideas? How about wearing a tea related costume? You could choose the classic Alice, Mad Hatter, or Queen of Hearts characters or as a teapot,teabag, or tea towel. How about becoming a Chinese Dragon or a tea leaves reading Fortune Teller for the night?
If you're just sending out your kids and staying home giving out all your goodies to the neighborhood kids, you know you're going to have another problem. What do you do after your little darlings have come home, told you about their adventures, deposited their UNICEF money and overflowing trick or treat containers, and gone to bed? The chocolate bars they left on top are calling, "eat me; eat me now." Couldn't you filch just one? No, the kids have memorized the contents of their stashes, an you have to set a good example. You go to another room and try to keep busy, but the chocolate just shouts louder. Your resistance is slipping. What can you do? How about a cup of chocolate, vanilla , or almond tea to satisfy your cravings and make you feel good in the morning too?
