A little gift for someone special


I thought it would be a nice gift to give this lovely Tea sampler from Teaman. It contains the following quantities of each: 5 teabags of each flavour Raspberry and Peach herbal tea, Blueberry and Blackberry herbal , Mandarin Orange and Mango herbal tea, Chai black tea, Earl Grey black tea, Sencha green tea , Strawberry black tea, Cranberry tea, Vanilla black tea, Gingerbread tea , Raspberry Black tea, Chamomile Herbal tea, English Breakfast traditional black tea, Apple/Cinnamon spiced green tea, and Orange Spice green tea. For a total of 75 teabags, packed in individual 5 packs. Sounds good. Maybe someone will invite me over for a cuppa.

Ben's Tournament Weekend

Here's Ben (14-brown belt)in red/white, sparring a 17 year old black belt. He took a lot of penalties, missed out on a lot of points but gave the kid a run for his money.

Overall, competing against black belts this weekend, Ben ended up with 3rd place in weapons and 5th in sparring. He held his own against the big boys.
