Tea on Tuesday-REALLY!

Good morning world!  It's Tuesday so your are most likely here for T stands for Tuesday with Elizabeth and Bluebeard , if not welcome anyway, and you might want to check this weekly T-day out and join us!
I was out at the mall last Friday to get my rings checked and cleaned, and while waiting I walked out into the mall.  There was a young lady, at Teavana, giving samples of tea away, and I thought "why not?"  The tea was wonderful and of course she proceeded to walk me inside to other tea samples. (She is a VERY good sales person, or I'm just a sucker....LOL) She was very knowledgeable about their tea, and very interesting to talk to, and also told her about T-day. ( I had left my phone in the truck and was really kicking myself  for not getting pictures of this place.....NEXT time.)    So I took the bait! Oh Ya, I bought some teas....LOL
I bought this cup that will brew one cup at a time, see the little strainer in the middle?  I figured this would be the most mobile thing for use in the Playhouse too.  Then it was time to decide on which tea I want to buy.  Well, they had one last sample package that was $50% off and had three of the teas I had sampled.
I know I still probably paid too much for this kit, but I couldn't pass it up with such pretty tins to keep my "new" tea in. (I'm such a container junkie ..LOL)  Yes, they are all flavored teas, or Herbal  Infusion, as the tag says.
It also came with a bag of rock sugar, supposedly "the" only sugar to use that doesn't effect the taste of the tea!  I DON'T use sugar, well maybe a little Equal form time to time, but the sugar came with it.

My first cup, at home, was the Wild Orange Blossom.  It smelled wonderful and tasted just as good.
Have I disowned my coffee and mugs? OH NEVER!  But I am enjoying a good cup of tea in the late afternoons, early evenings.
In fact I went into the kitchen to refill my coffee and noticed the sun coming through the patio door, grabbed my camera and took this photo.  It looks blurry, but that is the mirror behind the vases.
Just thought I'd send along a little sunshine this morning!
Looks like I need to dust, so it must be time to get dressed and get THAT done.....LOL
Happy T-day

  1. My daughter & I were in Teavana over the holidays and sampled their Almond something or other--boy was it delicious! I didn't purchase any because we were on a strict mission looking for a gift, but I could see going back there. Love the cup/strainer, too.

    PS LOL, where's the muffin bottom!

  3. Look at those containers. The fact that they have tea in them seems like a bonus to me. Of course I imagine the tea is delicious.

  4. Thanks for the sunshine. What a beautiful photo!

    Your tea variety pack sounds so yummy, and the containers are gorgeous. The orange flavor sounds delightful. You'll have to let us know about the other flavors on future T Days. :)

  5. I'm having trouble staying logged onto blogger, and that is why I'm late getting here. What a fantastic group of tins of tea you bought. And just think of all the uses you'll have for those tins once they are empty. Good salesperson or not, sounds like she knew what she was talking about, because I was impressed with the teas you got.

    Thanks for sharing tea today. Very impressive sunlight to go with the tea, too.

  11. I would have bought the teas just for the containers! I have a little tea pot for one with a strainer like that, but I could do with that mug too for work!
    That photo is gorgeous and thanks for sharing it with us. A little sunshine in dismal January!

  13. I am a container junkie, too! I will always have my coffee, but I do love to have tea once in a while. I swear it's the containers and paraphernalia that draw me in--LOL! That looks like a great cup--and measuring spoon, too. I should actually start making tea for our Tuesdays, too. ;)
    Happy late T-Day! :)
