Tea a Ritual

There are few hours in life more agreeable than the
hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.
~Henry James

Select your favorite cup, brew my tea to your personal liking,
and take joy in the ritual itself.
~Tasha Tudor

Tasha Tudor's Welsh Breakfast Tea is a blend
of black teas from India and China.
As Tasha says, it is both robust yet delicate at the same time.
Enjoy a cup of tea today and take time for the ritual.

It's fun to see your pretty counter again! Love the thought of Tasha Tudor tea - think I'd better go brew a cup of special tea.

Another pretty tea cup, and more delicious tea. I haven't seen her tea before, I must visit her web site.
'Tea, the drink that refreshes...'
I think that was a slogan for a tea company years ago, and how true..!

I love a nice cup of Harrod's English Breakfast #14 with cream and honey. I bet this Indian-Chinese blend is very nice too.

I think I shall! Great quotes Marilyn! said...

I adore tea time. When I was attending University many moons ago, I studied Japanese humanities, specifically, the tea rituals... fascinating.

I love tea time. Thank you for a peaceful lovely visit!

Oooohhh, that Henry James quote has long been a favorite it of mine, too--and so true! The Tasha Tudo tea sounds a wonderful blend...mmm... Thank for such a happy tea time moment, Marilyn :o) ((HUGS))

Cool! I didn't know that Tasha Tudor had a blend.

I have heard of this tea but never read a review of it, so thank you! Beautiful tin! (But then I've long been a Tasha fan ...)
