BACK TO TEA


Tea has always been a favorite of mine.  Not only do I have a tea collection, i.e. tea pots, cups and saucers, strainers, and a collection of teas.  However, I have been drinking coffee for a long time and my tea collection gathering dust.   All that to say, this week I was invited to lunch by a friend who just came back from a cruise to Alaska, and on their trip they visited a Tea House and she brought be a bag of White Heather Queen Mary Tea.

This morning I washed the dust off the tea pot and cup, and tried a cup with a Banana Muffin with Crumb topping I made this morning.  DELICIOUS!!!  Think the coffee will be on hold for a while!

  1. There is just something so inviting about a teapot and a cup of tea with any kind of muffin or treat. I would like to find a tea that I could enjoy more than coffee.

    1. So true. And I don't have any coffee mugs as lovely as my teacups and teapots. Something elegant about the whole thing.

    1. I'll start a pot early. And yes, there are more muffins. I made 12 to take to our son's tomorrow, but I had enough batter for 4 extras.

    2. Muffins bake nice in short, stubby canning jars too.

  3. What a thoughtful gift from Alaska. Tea and a muffin sounds like a good way to relax on a Saturday. Blessings to you and yours tomorrow.

  6. You have many more china cups and teapots than I do and I'm supposed to be British. But I do have about 4 0r 5 which I only keep for tea drinking. If I drink tea -- and I do -- it has to be out of a china cup!

    1. Chris, tea just doesn't taste the same from a mug!! the color of the tea looks so pretty from a china cup.
      That's part of the fun of drinking tea, is choosing the cup!

  8. I just love your tea pot and china cups.
    When we moved I packed most of my china cups away and they haven't seen the light of day since.
    I will have to plan a tea party for the next time we get together...
    Blog party sounds fun too.

    1. Yes, I'm bringing some to Tahoe, and we will have "High Tahoe Tea". We'll keep it simple, so you won't need your hat and gloves. Tee Hee
      But I will make my Apricot White Chocolate walnut scones.

  9. It's so fun to make a real pot of tea, isn't it? I have a little teapot collection myself and like you, they get dusty. That tea your friend brought you sounds delish!

    1. Somehow it just tastes better from a pretty teapot. Did you notice my kitty drip holder?
      The tea is loose and very delicate but full of flavor.
