I Need It To Keep Me Warm







Holly and Ivy



I realized that, as much as I like Emma Bridgewater,
I didn't have an Emma Christmas mug.
So, I got myself an early present and have been using
the mug and my Portmeirion Holly and Ivy teapot
all month, drinking Harney and Sons
White Christmas Tea
(a blend of white tea, almonds and vanilla).


White Christmas

When I'm finished drinking White Christmas,
I get to start on my new teas.



Fearrington House Tea

My BGD (beautiful god-daughter) and her handsome knight
sent me Fearrington House Afternoon Tea.
It smells so delicious: Black China Tea
 with carmel, grapefruit, and lemony bergamot.
Plus, Fearrington House Jam:Raspberry, Star Anise, Thyme.
The Fearrington House is one of their favorite places for a romantic get-a-way.
Looking at it in the magic of cyberspace --
it looks like a wonderful spot for tea and belted cattle gazing! 
You can check out the Fearrington Village and Inn here.


Teas

More tea!
Liliuokalani tea from Serendipi Tea:
Organic China Black Tea, Safflower Petals, Orange Blossoms, 
and Tropical Fruit Flavor.

Taylor Maid Farms: Pacific Coast Breakfast - Organic Yunnan Black Tea.

There is a cold front blowing through.
I'll need all of this tea to keep me warm!

Wishing YOU well and much joy!

Your new EB mug is a close match to your teapot, a good choice for a gift to yourself. Some nice teas to enjoy in the new year and jam for your scones...what more could a gal wish for!
We're finally looking at some serious winter weather coming our way so I plan to keep warm with a hot cuppa myself.

Your mug goes so well with your teapot and like you, I can confirm that Christmas tea in an EB mug does taste very good doesn't it. So does hot chocolate! xx

I'm currently drinking White Christmas too! I'm also a huge fan of Emma Bridgewater and aspire to own one of her teapots/teacups/mugs one day. Enjoy your new teas! Happy New Year!

Sipping tea is a fine way to get through a cold snap! Your featured teas sound very tasty and that mug...lovely! A charming complement to your pretty tea pot.

I am so jealous! How gorgeous is that. I am going to have to step up my game... I only gifted myself a couple tubes of watercolor paint. Ha!!!

What a nice gift for yourself with the EB mug, Snap! Doesn't it work so well with your teapot, too? I must try the white Chrismas tea sometime because it sounds wonderful. Enjoy your new teas and Happy New Year!
