OT- should we try a Tuesday Tea?

lavender_lassAugust 16, 2011

I know many of you have been drinking more tea lately and I thought it might be fun to try a Tuesday Tea. We do Thursday Tea on the Cottage Garden forum (Conversation side) and it's a lot of fun. I thought it might be nice to try it here and see how it goes :)

Anyway, if you want to have a cup of tea (hot or iced) or even another beverage, just decide if you plan to have tea inside or out in the garden...take a picture if you want...and stop by and join in the conversation.

I'll start, by saying today is a lovely day and I plan to make a cup of Earl Grey and sit in the shady spot of my fairy garden. The bee balm is beautiful and the hummingbirds are loving it. I'll try to take a few pictures and post them later. We've got friends coming out to visit this weekend, so I'll be doing a lot of weeding this week, but I love to take time for a cup of tea in the afternoon.

What are you plans today...and do they include a cup of tea? Have a wonderful Tuesday and please stop by and visit :)

LL, can you link to a post over there? I'm not sure I understand and would like to see such a conversation. I just looked and didn't see a thread with a Tea in the subject line.

Marti- Sure. We usually get together on Thursdays, on the Conversation side of the Cottage Garden forum. Some weeks are busier than others, but it's always fun to chat and catch up, in case we haven't talked much during the week.

Some people like to share pictures, others have interesting stories, some share recipes and some just visit. It's pretty much whatever you feel like that day...just a reminder to take some time for yourself and enjoy a cup of tea :)

I bought some Lemon Crunch muffins just awhile ago, so my kettle is on for tea today, not Tuesday or Thursday! But I'm usually over at Cottage Gardens Conversations on tea day; and knowing me, I'll have to photograph these lemon muffins on the tea tray tomorrow. :)

Schoolhouse- Those muffins sound wonderful! I'll be looking for your pictures, tomorrow :)

I hope you all will stop by and visit, if you like. If you have fun, we can have a tea here, on Tuesdays, all visit the Cottage Garden forum (Conversations side) on Thursdays...or both! LOL

I have a question lavendar_lass. Do you try to all have tea at a specific time so that you are actually communicating in real time, or do you just post and then people read at their leisure?

Ellendi- Sometimes, we don't even all make in on the same day. (LOL) Usually, we start on Thursday afternoon and finish on Friday, since someone (even me) will forget it's Thurday and stop by the next day. It's a lot of fun and very relaxed. If you want to post a picture of your garden, your tea dishes, or something else...you can. Schoolhouse and a few others take lovely photos. Some people might share a recipe and many just talk about their day.

It's really up to you, how you want to participate...but mainly, it's a way to keep in touch and enjoy a cup of tea :)

Lav, I suppose I've been MIA since before last Tuesday Aug 16? I did not realize that I'd missed that much. I've been on the hot tea bandwagon since you and my new Teahouse combined to lure me that direction.

And you remember that little book about Tea by Mary Jo Koch? Well, it gives me mental images of sweet little tea pots and brief facts about tea, which are also inspirational. Now that I am up nawth for a couple of months, I have access to some old English style teapots too. Plus, up here, my younger granddaughters love to come over and we have a tea party. They love hot tea. I suppose it is part of their Irish heritage. So, I have stocked a big supply of various teas, from loose tea to bags to sachets, and we explore the world of tea.

I look forward to joining the fun. IF I can keep focused on what day it is...........
