While at the Renegade Craft Fair, in Los Angeles, my sister and I came across the Tea Drops booth.  The owner and creator, of Tea Drops, Sashee Chandran was so welcoming and enthusiastic about her teas.  She has plenty of reasons to be excited, because her teas are amazing and the concept is ingenious!  She creates single serving sized molded teas.  You drop the mold into a mug, add water, stir, and enjoy.  Here is her story.     At the RCF we were able to sample some teas, and she gave away a sample of a yummy vanilla tea, and it went along well with snickerdoodle cookies!  Here is my Tea Drop experience.Tea Drops, AnthropologieTea DropsTea DropsTea DropsTea DropsTea Drops, AnthropologieSorry for all the steam in the video.   And it is as easy as that!  Each drop is made with a little bit of organic sugar, so there is no need to sweeten it.  After my vanilla tea was made, I sat back and enjoyed my snickerdoodle cookies, Vogue magazine, and Teakwood and Tobacco P.F.
