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?



  1. Oh my goodness, thank you for sharing this! I am hosting the ladie's tea party at church and was thinking about the cups myself. I could probably dig around and find some, but this is so much easier. I like the plates too! My daughter discovered the Tazo tea a while back - yes, they are good! Have a great weekend. Now on to Amazon to find some cups and plates.

  2. So beautiful. I don't drink tea, but maybe with all those flavors, I should try again.
