Gift of Tea

Mary, my blog friend that visited this week, brought a gift of tea.
Now isn't that the most perfect thing to give a tea lover?
It is Marks & Spencer's Empress Grey.
A special blend created by their master blender just for Marks & Spencer.
Normally Earl Grey teas are not my choice, but I just am loving
the citrus addition to this blend.
It is a fair trade tea blended with Orange and Lemon flavoring, Orange and
Lemon peel, and Bergamot Oil, which makes it the "Grey".
How special to receive a gift from London's finest and to be able
to enjoy it while sitting in my yard this morning.

What is in your cup this morning?

Mary must be visiting from the UK! What a perfect photo!

My cup had my daily morning beverage, Tab. I'm a night time tea girl!

Steph said...

Lovely! I'm drinking water today.

Laurie said...

What a perfect gift Marilyn, how special! Love the setting you chose to display them.

A great gift indeed! Today I am still drinking tea sweetened with blueberry simple syrup I made over the weekend. Yum!

Jeanne said...

Love and hugs and kisses and glorious wishes across the miles.

You makes my heart ☼SMILE☼

That sounds extra delicious, as I do like Earl Grey tea anyway! What a lovely gift, enjoy both the tea and the visit.

Dear Marilyn,
That tea sounds delicious. I love Earl Grey the most and with those added flavors, I bet it is a winner.
In my bone china mug this morning...tea from The Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia. Nice memory of a wonderful tea there.
Enjoy your tea, Ruthie

My morning cup today was Metropolitan's Peach Apricot black tea. Love the photo of the tranquil tea setting in this post.
What a thoughtful gift of tea from your friend. Nothing could be more appreciated by a tea lover!

Really glad you like the Empress Grey. Because of you I'm now leaving milk in my tea's much more refreshing without and the flavor comes through better of course.

Hugs - Mary
