Sit and have a cup o' tea..

I drink tea. My husband is a coffee person, but I like tea. The smell of coffee is fabulous, but unless it is cream and sugar with a 'little bit of coffee' I just can't drink it. So, I thought I'd share my favorite tea and give you a sneak peek at the lovely pretties I have been packing up for my Valentine's Day Swap!

As you can tell from the pic, I use a mug. Not a dainty, pretty cup (I do have some) but a mug. My tea bag sits wrapped around the handle all day, and as my cup empties I just add more hot water. I know, I'm sure, that I am breaking all the rules of proper tea drinking that people are gasping all over the world. No sugar, no cream. Just a bag. The flavor of Pickwick Wild Raspberry Rose is just delightful! It reminds me of summer as it is filled with rosehips, hibiscus, rose leaves and raspberries. I had a hard time tfinding in any of my local shops, so my MIL ordered 6 boxes for me off the internet! Isn't she a sweetie? ♥

Below is the glimpse of goodies each of you will be receiving from me. I had so much fun putting these together! I can't wait for you to open them, I just wish I could be there! You'll have to let me know when you get them, they will be going out in the mail on Monday. Hopefully everyone will get them before Valentine's.. Sherry and Carolyn, I'll hope for speedy delivery for you!! :)
Everyone have a lovely weekend, I'm not sure if I'll be able to post, but I'll be visiting everyone's blog!

Hi Abbie,
I'm an herbal tea person, too. And I feel exactly the same about coffee -- it smells wonderful, but I just don't like the taste. My favorite tea is Celestial Seasonings Cranberry Apple Zinger. Unlike you, however, I need mine with lots of sugar! :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh so pretty Abbie!! Can't wait to receive mine -- hope you are going to like yours!! I'll be going to the P.O. on Monday -- it's just too nasty to go today!!

I love tea -- I also love coffee but grew up with tea -- and putting the bag in the mug and adding boiling water? That's how I do mine most of the time--though I grew up with the "classic" way of in the tea pot...who's got time for that?! :)

Enjoy your weekend!!

I like coffee and tea. For some reason, I have to have coffee in the morning and tea in the afternoon....both unsweetened :-) Your package goodies look wonderful!

Have the Best of Weekends.....Rosie

That tea looks wonderful! I love my coffee in the morning, but I love tea too! My daughter and I love going to tea rooms...

Oh my those look so awesome.....can't wait....
Tea, yes I'm a tea drinker too, but only black with no sugar and no milk. I also drink every other day a cup of coffe with lot's of soy milk, started again when I was pregnant with Maya. But I can't have everyday one, makes me too nervous. So you like tea, aha, a hint what I could get you......favorite chocolate? Smiles, Anke ;)
