The most wonderful of all seasons seems to be upon us. This month, Americans everywhere will turn their thoughts to family and friends. All across the country we will gather together to reflect on our personal blessings and enjoy a bountiful feast. Other countries around the World also celebrate a day to give thanks for their bountiful harvests. So whether you are celebrating Thanksgiving in the U.S. or Dongmaeng in Korea, Maras Taun in Indonesia or Nabanna in Bangladesh,
we wish you all peace and happiness.
Happy sipping, Maureen
A TEA PLANTATION IN MISSISSIPPI ?

When Hurricane Katrina destroyed his timber stand in 2005, Lincoln County landowner Jason McDonald searched for an alternative crop.

In May 2012, he visited the Charleston Tea Plantation in South Carolina and began to consider growing the crop himself.

“I wanted something that was sustainable and better at resisting storm damage,” McDonald said. “As long as tea plants are managed well, they are low-growing, which makes them able to survive high winds.”

After five months of in-depth research, he and his business partner, Timothy Gipson, decided they would give tea a shot. For expert help in the venture, they went to their Mississippi State University Extension Service office.

Colonel Jason McDonald visited the Charleston Tea Plantation in South Carolina after Hurricane Katrina destroyed his 280 acre timber farm. He wanted to replace the timber with something that was better at resisting storms. After months of research, he and his partner, Timothy Gipson, decided on TEA. They then went to Mississippi State University for help. Although tea has never been grown in Mississippi before, the soil and conditions seem to be well suited for this plant. In the Spring of 2013, they started with 250 plants, which survived the winter and have done well. Plans are to expand to over 60,000 tea plants covering 150 acres.

Now known as The Great Mississippi Tea Company, this is an exciting farm to watch. They plan to produce conventional organic black teas in an ethically sustainable environment. We applaud Colonel McDonald and his partners for taking on this new business venture, inherent with the risks that farming does bring. Their mission says it all ......

"The Great Mississippi Tea Company is steeped in American history, revolution, and pioneering spirit. It is from this pioneering background and proud family heritage and lineage, that The Great Mississippi Tea Company wishes to carry on its heritage as a piece of living history; it also hopes to bring about revolution in the centuries old tea industry to bring about a bright future for ourselves and all of humanity."

Cranberry Orange
Cranberry Nut
Cranberries have been a part of the Thanksgiving feast since the very first one in 1620. Having grown up in the northeast, we are very familiar with the fruit of these low growing, woody plants.


Savor the tart, tangy crispness of local cranberries blended with naturally-sweet, juicy oranges and just a hint of cinnamon in this aromatic seasonal blend.


Order your Cranberry Orange today!
We've created two blends using this tart, tangy fruit just for your Thanksgiving table. As a child, when we saw the cranberry bogs being flooded, we knew it was almost time for Thanksgiving.


This blend of South African Rooibos with tart, tangy, dried cranberries and nutty walnuts and almonds is fresh, crisp and nutty. A perfect way to end your Thanksgiving feast!

THE PALM COURT AT THE PLAZA

Congratulations to the Plaza Hotel in New York City for reopening its grand Palm Court restaurant. Celebrity chef, Geoffrey Zakarian will head up the relaunch of this iconic room. In keeping with the tradition of its original design, the architects have brought large potted plants, four soaring palm trees and an oval trellised bar for an elegant, yet relaxed, outdoor setting.

Of course, Afternoon Tea willl be served with custom tableware and china and a bit of Eloise too. If you haven't been to The Plaza, I strongly suggest a visit.
