What's in your cup?


What's in your cup today?
In my cup is Tribute Tea.

It was grown by a lady in Taiwan
and given to a friend of mine.
The purpose was to share her tea with
someone that would send her garden seeds.
I may have shared this before, but I just
loved that she wanted to connect in this way with others.
The tea is an Oolong with a slightly roasted flavor.
It is nice and light and perfect for my morning tea.
This is my last pot of this lovely tea, so I am savoring it this morning.

This morning I had Red Rose, a brand name tea that I think may only be available here.
This link will tell you8 about it.

Sounds like the perfect cup of tea! Nothing in my cup today...just some green veggie juice I am drinking. And it's not very good...but it is healthy :)

In my many many cups this morning is coffee grown here in Hawaii. Along with a piece of toast from the local maui bakery, topped with Big Islands Bee honey that we got at the farmers market in Ka'anapali. Still enjoying Maui. Mahalo Marilyn

Lady Grey is in my cup, yet I know nothing about her!
Her husband also comes by, but I also know very little about him! This post piqued my curiosity (and warmed my heart - what a beautiful picture)

Off to google the Greys!

What a wonderful idea! Right now my cup(or can) is full of Tab, but perhaps some tea soon! Gorgeous tulips!

Loved the photo... beautiful colors and a promise of spring. In my cup this morning? Benihikari... a gift from my penpal. It's a Japanese black tea an 'English tea' as she would describe it. Very nice, delightful black, not overly assertive. Nancy

Hello Marily,

Happy days.
