Tea Time~

Are you a tea drinker? I am, but mostly during the cold, winter months.

Recently while house-sitting for friends I tried Teavana's

Well I actually made a small pot every day that I was there.

For me, it is the perfect blend of a comforting winter tea, smooth, medium bodied and fruity.

~Rock Sugar~

My beautiful sister-in-law introduced me to German rock sugar about a year ago.

This too is available at Teavana. Just a couple of tiny bits is enough to sweeten a perfect cup of tea.

I love the ritual of brewing a small pot of tea in the afternoon and relaxing with a book or magazine.

Do you treat yourself to afternoon tea?
I'd love to know if you have a favorite.



  1. I love afternoon tea especially during the winter . I love Pomegranate Green Tea. Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. I adore really good "loose" tea and I have a lovely white tea pot that I use nearly every day. I love herbal teas and then I love those rare smokey teas that take me away to some exotic locale.
    My husband invited me for tea (first date) and I knew he was the "marrying kind!" We had "Jasmine" tea.
    We still enjoy "high" tea! :)

  3. I love good old fashioned black tea for a pick me up in the afternoons. Yum... can't wait for my next mug.

  4. I'm a tea addict, and drink it all day long. I love a pretty cup, a nice teapot, it just enhances the experience, doesn't it?

  5. I can never seem to make a cup of tea that comes anywhere close to the ones I have in Britain, but I try nonetheless. A friend brought me some Cream Earl Grey over the holidays, and it's really quite good. Give that one a try.

  6. nothing better that a great tasting cup of tea-beautiful photos!

  7. I love a good cup of tea. I have to try that rock sugar. Yum.
