It's been raining.
One of those slow, soul clearing, nice to walk in rains.
Three days now.
Cool temps --- 80s instead of 90s.
Perfect for tea drinking and reading.
I saw the teapot on a blog and began the search for one.
Months later I was in Marshalls walking through the clearance section and
there it was.
Grabbed it ... $2.99!
The Royal Worcester cup and saucer is another find from The Guild Shop.
I love the handle, the gold accents, the lovely flowers.
Pretty in the pot!
Two Leaves Tea Company announced a new line of affordable "luxury" teas
from the Paisley Tea Company.
They are traditional English Style paper teabags (no tag or string)
with tea that's organic and fair trade certified.
I was asked by Stephanie at Steph's Cup of Tea
if I would taste test three of the new teas and I said yes!
Today I'm sharing the English Breakfast Tea and Decaf English Breakfast.
I let the kettle come to a boil and then let the water rest for a moment before pouring into
the pot and adding the tea.
I let the bags steep for 3 full minutes.
I thought they were both delicious with a nice full tea aroma.
I added a lemon slice and thought they were even better.
When I taste tested this tea, the weather was very hot and that means iced tea.
It was okay, but I much prefer English Breakfast hot.
Thanking our tea party hosts:
Wishing you WELL, much JOY and a wonderful cup of TEA!
