I have a confession to make – I have never seen a single episode of the insanely popular Doctor Who. As far as I’m concerned, I have no idea WHO Doctor WHO is! And yet… I am so in love with this adorable Doctor Who Tardis Teapot, I’m beside myself.

This beautiful collector’s item is fashioned after the time machine in the BBC TV show Doctor Who.

Wait? Time machine? What have I been missing?!?!

Beautiful Lemon Yellow Tea Kettle

Yellow Teapot
The beautiful Lemon Yellow Tea Kettle, shown here, is ridiculously good-looking. Bright, colorful, eye-catching, and downright cheerful, it has moved to the top of my “must have” list.

The adorable Calypso Basics 2-Quart Enamel-on-Steel tea kettle is actually available in a wide variety of colors (black, white, orange, lime, blue and a beautiful shade of pink that I’m pretty nuts about too). Each is available on Amazon – if you click through the link above (or here!), you can see each of the gorgeous colors available.

If you go with the lemon yellow, you might also be interested in the Lemon Shape Cutting Board with Knife, pictured below.

The Health Benefits of Tea are Staggering…

Given the fact that you’re here… on a tea blog…. leads me to believe that you’re as crazy about tea as I am. So I’ll skip telling you how delicious, refreshing, and absolutely perfect tea is – you already get that.

I’ll skip right to something you may not fully realize and that is this: Our favorite drink is as good for us as it is to us.

All tea (black, green, white, red, and oolong) – whether it’s iced or hot – is packed with antioxidants called polyphenols. Think of polyphenols as little superheroes that battle free radicals. Free radicals (the villains) have one thing in mind: damaging our cells and tissues and, thereby, increasing our risk of heart disease, cancer, and countless other diseases.

The polyphenols battle these guys before they have a chance to harm us.

What’s more, pholyphenols in tea help lower LDL cholesterol.

Catechins (which green tea, in particular, is loaded with) have been shown to improve triglyceride levels and may help protect against Alzheimer’s and certain forms of cancer.

Decaffenated tea is also a healthy option. As for herbal teas, they don’t offer the same health benefits as the teas named above but they’re still BY FAR healthier than drinking soft drinks and diet soft drinks.

Starbucks Green Tea Frappuccino (With Whipped Topping and Raspberry Syrup on Top, of Course!)

Starbucks Green Tea Frappuccino

I am as big a fan of Starbucks as you’ll ever find. In fact, every member of my family know the “right” thing to get me for Christmas, Mother’s Day, or my birthday is a Starbucks gift card.  One Christmas I racked up 5 and I was in caffeinated bliss for weeks!

The crazy thing is, I never… seriously, never…. order coffee at Starbucks. In the cooler months, I always get a Chai Tea Latte or hot black tea and in the warmer months, my Baristas know exactly what’s coming out of my mouth, “Grande Green Tea Frappuccino with Whipped Topping and Raspberry Syrup on Top.”

It’s absolute perfection and I’m as associated with this drink as Cookie Monster is cookies.  I, admittedly, get as worked up as he does for the object of my affection to.

Years ago, I began ordering the Green Tea Frappe “straight up,” without whipped topping or anything. Honestly, it’s absolutely delicious like that too and sometimes I still order it without the frills. However, I’ve found that a little whipped topping, followed by raspberry syrup on top creates such an incredible work of delicious art that I even dream about it.


When you order this masterpiece, you have to be sure to specify, “raspberry syrup on top” plainly or you’ll get it mixed in with the green tea frappe, itself. That’s happened to me before and, while it’s still delicious, it’s just not the same magical drink as you see pictured here.  Without the whipped topping and Raspberry syrup, it’s more like a delicious green tea smootie… add the other two and what you have is Heaven in a plastic cup.

This one’s a real head-turner and tastes even better than it looks.
