Favorite Things Tea A Cup of Tea {in my grandmother's tea cup}

Last September I told you I had become a coffee lover after a recent trip to Italy. I fell in love with Italian espresso and have been drinking it ever since. Before that I was an avid tea drinker and although coffee is now my favorite wake up call, I am still a tea lover at heart. I just drink it later in the day as a way to relax instead of waking up with it. There is something soothing about sitting down to a cup of tea. It can be an afternoon recharge or a quiet way to end the evening. There are so many varieties to choose from and lots of benefits to drinking it. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite "tea" things today. Happy Friday!

Favorite Things Tea (8)I'm a big fan of loose tea. I like to buy different varieties but Ceylon is my favorite.

Favorite Things Tea (5)I love this little gadget called the ingenuiTEA. It's the coolest way to brew loose tea.

Favorite Things Tea (3)Decaffeinated Ceylon Tea from Harney & Sons is my favorite afternoon tea. It has all the flavor of a good black tea without the buzz.

Favorite Things Tea (6)Tea should be poured into something pretty. I bought this hand painted mug on a trip to Alaska. It's one of my favorites.

Favorite Things Tea (4)I love the flavor of lemon in tea. And I'm a huge fan of lemon wedges because you can't squeeze skinny slices! Silly but true.

Whether you enjoy tea or coffee, pour a cup, relax and enjoy the moment. Have a wonderful weekend!
