Favorite Teas

Hi, Tea Lovers!
I will be off line a lot for the next couple of months. We've moved, and because of my organizing challenges we will probably be in boxes for several months. I will recycle some posts; send posts from my other blogs to stand in, and write a few really short entries in the meantime. Please share your tea thoughts, musings, memories, and favorites!

Here is a quick list of some of my favorite teas--please let me know what you think:

Tea Memories

Today we had a tea party at work for our office manager, Stacy. She has been a wonderful beam of light in the office, and we wanted to do something fun to see her off. The party ended up being Stacy, me, and Tamara, our massage therapist. We had lots of sweets from Williams Bakery, I used my green and blue tea set, and we had rooibos chai tea from Teavana.

How to Host a Simple Tea Party

When I want to have a quick girl's get together, a quick tea party is just the thing.  A few sandwiches, some muffins, a tea cake, and few pots of tea and you're good to go.

I've found people are intimidated by a tea party, and often make it harder than it needs to be.  They think they need fine china, or complicated tiny desserts, or fancy flower arrangements.  Remembering that a "tea service" for many people in Britain was basically an afternoon snack, or in some cases--supper for many years takes away some of the frou-frou fussing.  It doesn't have to be fancy to still be fun.
