Tea Time

Earlier this fall I was invited to a friends house for tea.
Sue served the tastiest scones smeared with lemon curd,
perfect bite sized cucumber sandwiches,
and the most delicious tea I had ever tasted!

From that moment on I have been hooked on tea.

Oh I still enjoy my morning cup of coffee.
But around 10 a.m. I am reaching for my tea kettle.

Shortly after tea at Sue's I was in charge of hosting my 
Bible study leaders meeting.

The first thing that came to mind?
A tea party!

But where do you find 16 tea cups and saucers in a few short weeks?

I hit up a few thrift shops in hopes of finding cups and saucers.
No such luck!

Usually when I can't find what I am looking for around me I turn to Amazon.
I didn't sign up for Prime for nothing.

I came up with these cute Alice in Wonderland cups.
I was worried about them holding hot water.
The reviews were good so into the cart they went.

I needed some cute plates to match my tea party theme.

These were just what I was looking for.

Of course you never are sure what you will get by just looking at the pictures.
Let me tell you I was pleasantly surprised!

The colors matched my Avon teapots I had purchased almost 30 years ago.

All the ladies asked where in the world did you find the cute cups and plates?

They were shocked when I replied Amazon.
Needless to say the tea party theme was a hit!

My tea obsession has continued right on through the winter!
I even began to make me a cup late in the afternoon.

My favorite flavor right now?

It sure warms you up on a cold winters day!

These flavors have been rotating through my tea cup as well.

I had no idea there were so many varieties to try!

Winter still has a few more months to go.
I plan on spending those chilly days with my tea kettle whistling, calling me to enjoy another cup of hot tea.

Whats your favorite cup of tea?
