It’s been a few years since I spent Easter with Daniel’s side of the family. Their traditions are a bit different than how I grew up. This year we are headed to Fort Worth for the holiday weekend, and because Daniel’s parents don’t do the traditional basket full of chocolates, I decided to switch things up a bit with Bigelow Tea.
Growing up, my parents always made my sister and I the most
sinful delicious basket of treats. Sometimes there’d be a toy or new blouse within the silly plastic grass, too. My first Easter with Daniel’s side [my new side!] of the family involved a very fun Easter egg hunt for cash. I don’t recall too much chocolate, to be honest! 🙂
So instead of an Easter basket filled with sweets and marshmallows, I created a basket for tea lovers. 🙂 I visited Walmart for most of the basket’s contents, and selected Bigelow Tea, a family owned company with which I grew up, for my new side of the family.
But that’s not all! I wanted this basket to be even more special. There are a lot more tea recipes than just adding water. Within the larger plastic eggs are a few assorted tea bags, and the smaller eggs contain recipes! One of the tastiest ones I found is called:
Thai Coconut Iced Tea
Prepare a cup of Bigelow jasmine tea and let it cool. // Add ice, half a cup of light coconut milk, and a packet of sweetener. // Stir and drink up!
