Tea and Wine




We are having our first real fall weekend.
It won't last long.
By Monday the heat and humidity will be back!

To celebrate the nice weather, I walked up to my village this morning to check out
Rosinka, a wine and tea shop.

It is a small spot, very cozy.

When you walk in you see this:


Tea and Wine

I told the young lady I wasn't much interested in the wine,
but wanted to check out her teas.

She had made Tai Ping Green for tea tasting and offered me a cup.
Cute little cups.

Tai Ping Green Collage

Tai Ping Green is a pressed green tea.
It was a tad on the bitter side and I wondered if perhaps she had steeped it too long.


Tea and Wine at Rosinka

She had some pretty tea tins.
They have a small menu that looked tasty.

What really caught my eye was this wonderful cozy... straight from Russia.


Tea Cozy


They have regularly scheduled wine tastings and some special wine events.
I read some of the reviews on Rosinka and we all seem to say the same things ...
small, cozy, looks like something you'd find in Europe.

I may go back one day and try something off the menu, take a book, settle in and people watch!

I'm joining the lovely Judith for Mosaic Monday
and some tea parties:


Wishing YOU well, much joy and a wonderful cup of tea!

Hi There, Just checking out your Tea and Wine Shop. Like you, I love my hot teas. We don't have much of a selection in our tiny town here --so we order our wines from Teavana and from DavidsTea in Canada. This morning I am drinking one named Brown Sugar. YUM...

Hope you are doing well. Enjoy the nice weather -while it lasts.
Hugs,
Betsy

It looks charming! I love to browse in little tea shops like that too.

It is a cute shop.. I would like to taste the wine and the tea. At different times of course.. The cozy is adorable, I love it..

Enjoy your new week ahead. Thanks for stopping by and for the comment..

A very cute shop to explore. The tea cozy is adorable and would surely keep a pot of tea warm. I love most tea although green tea is not my favourite.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

It does look cozy. I'd like to relax and people watch there, too! You inspire me to pay more attention to the tea that I drink.

I thought this post would be about the ice wine tea that is available. I've not tried it yet but it sounds interesting.
The tea cozy is fun and the shop itself would be a nice place for a cup of tea.
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday.

It is a charming shop. I have started to drink wine since the last July! Until then, I did not know how tasty wine is!One more gift is that my cholesterol has went down!
Have a nice new week.

That is a cute little cup! I won some Teavivre tea in a giveaway a while back and I like it. The tea cozy is sweet and would be a nice one for one's collection. Thanks for taking us along on your visit. Have a beautiful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

That is certainly a different combo...tea and wine. But recently have been seeing things about place and ships with tea sommeliers just like wine sommeliers, so I guess that's the trend. Looks like an interesting place. Love the cozy! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

Adorable Shop!

Rajesh said...

This sure looks great place for tea.

Beth L. said...

What a fun and cozy shop. I wish I could something like that here. Wine shops are unfortunately state run for the most part in Pennsylvania and college town seems to run on coffee shops!!!!! So you are lucky .

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and say hello. Enjoyed your post. Happy Tea Time!

Ciao,

It looks like a wonderful place to spend a little time -- cup of tea, people watch, maybe a little lunch .... maybe stay all day and have a glass of wine when evening comes.... well, no I guess not. She'd probably have to charge me rent if I stayed that long ;>). Seriously, I'm not much of a shopper, but it is fun to find unique places like this.

Donna said...

Oh I love teas and especially green tea and shops like this

Martha's Favorites said...

Hi: I have never heard of a shop that does wine and tea! How very fun. I don't know what I would choose. Love the little tea cup. Looks like it is a fun place. Blessings, Martha

kitty said...

What an interesting shop! I loved checking it out through your pics. The tea cozy is just too cute!

Zaa said...

OMG.... Rosinka looks so charming and so unique... I'd love to visit it..Where is it located? Imagine wine and tea together...Fabulous idea... Thank You for sharing ...Hugs

Carrie said...

What an interesting combo and cozy shop. Thanks for sharing it.

First: I love your Fall header!
What a fun shop, I'd love to go there too, but at least I'm happy to have you share it with us bloggers from far away. Cute little teacup, and I love wine too!
Hugs,
FABBY

It was fun to see this shop Snap through your eyes and visit. I am so glad you shared at Tea In The Garden!

Martha said...

Now that would be a great store -- WINE and TEA!

KathyB. said...

We don't have such shops around here, if we did I'd be visiting them. I love the idea of going back with a book to enjoy and people watch. If you do I hope you'll write a post about it.

I think the cups are cute too, and the cozy, very nice !She ( the cozy ) would be a good hostess keeping the tea warm while you're sharing a cuppa with friends or family, and she'd also bring a smile to anyone who sees her. :)

Barb said...

Snap, I had to tell you we met a man from Houston on our recent trip to Aspen. He complained about the Houston humidity. I thought of you! Hope it's cooler now...

Cindy said...

Thanks for the tour of the tea and a wine shop. If it was bitter you are probably right steeped too long. Next time ask for the leaves on the side, lol, lovely mosiacs

Maya Harrison said...
