Winter Tea Time

 Welcome!
 Come sit awhile.
 It's tea time here.
Winter tea time is the best time for sitting by the fire with a friend.
Won't you join me? Oh, I would love to sit here with you.
There are chicken curry croissants, cucumber sandwiches,
thumbprint cookies with lavender jelly, and French macarons
of roses and fleur de sel.
The tea today is Teavivre's Yun Nan Dion Hong, golden tip black tea.
The tea service is Noritake M, made in Japan, a soft creamy yellow.
Come join me for tea by my fire.

If you would like a sample of the tea, please leave a comment today,
and I will draw a name and announce it tomorrow morning.
If you are leaving a comment, make sure there is a link to your blog
or a way to contact you.
PS - I will be away from my computer for awhile today, so if you
don't see your post right away please don't worry.

Tea by the fireside; how perfect especially at this time of year! Love your china and the food selections sound just wonderful. I have never had lavender jelly; sounds divine! Thank you for coming to tea and helping me celebrate my Tea Party Anniversary.

Blessings,
Sandi

Wow! That is an awesome set up. I wish I could be sitting there right now. I would also love some tea. Since I am a new tea drinker I would like to expand my horizons. Thanks for the cozy post today.

Oh, Marilyn, I can think of nothing lovelier than settling into a cozy spot by your fireplace with a cuppa tea and delicious treats. The best treat, of course, the company!
