Tuesday With Tea

Tea is fantastic anytime or place. But Since I participate in Happy Tuesday and use to participate Tuesday and Show and Tails when Angela hosted, I thought Tuesday with Tea would give me a chance to share of my own tea cups and favorite teas.
Stephanie use to host the most wonderful tea cup and tea mug exchanges. I loved to participate in both the tea cup and mug exchange and the final year she hosted I received this mug:
The young lady who sent me this mug said it was so very hard to part with it and that made me smile because I realized she wanted it for herself and she gave it to me. Talk about a sacrifice. It is funny when you get involved with people from all walks of life in blog world you make such nice friendships.
The ladies here rosesandteacups.com sell some terrific products and many of them are from small business owners here in the USA. They have helped me on many occasions to find the right tea cup .As I get closer to my 11th year of blogging November 1, 2020 I am thinking of having a giveaway and a teacup or mug or even coffee items may be included.  I still plan to do a postcard exchange but I have that in the works as well. Once we get our solar approved by the city we can rest easy.
republicoftea.com has some yummy tea and I Have a been a customer there for quite some time. I love the tins the round tea bags come in. You can reorder and save on just the tea bags once you have your individual tins. They keep your tea nice and fresh.
If you prefer loose tea you need a strainer This little one has helped me through many times concocting the perfect cup of tea.
Nick was sick a few years back with a miserable flu like virus and cold. I bought this Celestial Seasoning mug for him. It is the original Sleepy Time bear who sits on the packaging. You can buy the tea in regular and mint. Avery and I drink it most every night before bedtime. Nevermind those thin Oreo mint cookies hahaha.....
I always give a shout out to Mo Siegel's company Celestial Seasoning in Boulder, Colorado. When people we arguing over the Gay rights amendment in California years ago Barbra Streisand attacked Mo and said boycott Colorado. He responded that more gays were employed by his company then she probably knew. Fact check Barbie, fact check!! Jack Nicholson had this to say, I have a place in Colorado and I like that people leave me alone there. So much for that boycott although today, with so many moving here, I wish they would boycott us instead. Go away.  We have too many people and do not need anymore.
My sweet friend Debbie from the Colorado mountains sent me the sweetest care package when we lost Alastor Avery last summer. It included this tea. Hmmm......my secret is out, everyone knows my Wild Child side I guess! tiestatea,com has many great tea flavors. 
Always enjoy a few minutes of quietude. Life is fast, slow down. 
Shakespeare was a smart guy.

I rarely drink tea and when I do it's green tea. Now coffee is another story. I do enjoy seeing your teacups. So beautiful.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Big hugs. ♥

I'm not much of a tea drinker but I love the idea of a tea cup or mug exchange, that sounds like fun. Enjoy your Tuesday evening :)

Exchanging tea and coffee mugs or cups sounds like a great idea. In fact, i have special ones given to me that i keep on the window sill to remind me of certain people.

I just had a cup of tea awhile ago. My favorite is your second mug. I used to buy Republic Of Tea, but now no one close sells it. Why ARE tea bags square anyway, when mugs are round?

I am a coffee in the a.m. before 10 and the only time I drink tea is when I get sick and I like black tea then. Your cups are pretty and it is a fun thing to do for people who like teacups and tea. I had a friend who collected coffee cups and when she died she had a chest of drawers with 5 drawers and upside down in all five drawers to the maximum content for mugs that had been given to her over the years. That said nobody in the family wanted all those mugs so they went to Goodwill. Just thought I'd throw that out there to all you collectors. I am the rare woman who is a collector of nothing.

I've always been fascinated by all the paraphernalia that goes with tea drinking and I have some (same silver strainer you have) and a wide variety of teas, but I still rarely drink it and am a coffee drinker 98% of the time.
