tea on a winter day








Tea is an important part of my daily routine.

Whether it's loose tea or a bag ~ in a thick mug or in a china cup ~ I enjoy my tea.
I am sure a lot of you enjoy your tea as well.

This post is inspired by a gift from Judith at Lavender Cottage and some gifts from my sister.  Both know I love tea.

Memory Lane teacup by Royal Albert and one by Aynsley

Judith had a giveaway on her blog, Lavender Cottage, in late November and I won this beautiful book ~ Scones & Tea.



It is full of beautiful tea time photos and recipes that I know I will be trying out.  Thank you Judith!


My sister sent me the tin of my favourite tea and she gifted me the measuring spoon last year.


Sister also sent this sweet decorative miniature teapot and the lovely embroidered tea towel for Christmas.

Aynsley Teacup with Earl Grey tea.





I set my tea on this beautiful bench made by a good friend of ours.  It is used as the coffee table in front of our family room sofa but I brought it up to the living room window for this tea time.

I find tea is good all year around but on a cold winter day it can warm the body with every delicious sip.  It also helps to have a little treat on the side don't you think? 
{Unless you're dieting like I am.}    :)

Thank you for visiting me for tea today.  
I am joining Tea Time Tuesday.



Have a great week my friends.

Blessings,

Pamela
