It's Tea Time!
Hello, lovely ladies! It's Tuesday and time for tea all around blogland. Today I would like to share with you a Bible study tea I hosted just after Easter. Since I still had my spring tablescape up, I just took out my tea accoutrements and it was tea time!
The menu consisted of an assortment of cookies, blueberry lemon bread, currant scones with jam and mock devonshire cream, apples and brie, and fresh fruit. Among the teas served were pomegranate oolong, chocolate hazlenut, white wedding tea, and white vanilla grapefruit.
Now, to share with you a teacup from my collection...it's just my everyday teacup. It has no pedigree, it is not an antique, bone china, or even made in England. But it does have a lot of sentiment. I purchased this teacup from a gift shop at the famous Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego. My sweet hubby surprised me with a one night getaway for our anniversary a couple of years ago. So since then, I've used this teacup daily. I cherish it as if it were made for the queen!
Before I leave, dear tea friends, I leave you with this quote, "Strange how a teapot can represent at the same time the comforts of solitude and the pleasures of company." ~anonymous
