TEA ---LOVIN' IT!!




This week at the Tea-Blog-A-Thon, we are doing the following:


The White, Green, Black, and Herb of Tea

Tell about your favorite tea. How do you prepare it and serve it? Milk and sugar? Plain? What are some of your best memories of serving or sipping on this tea? Share a picture if you can. Tell the health benefits of the tea(s) you prefer. Where do you purchase your tea? Is there someplace you enjoying purchasing tea from? Who from and where?
My favorite tea blend is Lady Grey....similar to Earl Grey, but with a bit more citrus. I first bought it in England, but it is also available in Canada. There is nothing as good for an afternoon pick-me-up as a steaming cup of Lady grey (with a little shortbread, of course!)

Lady Gray is one of my favorites as well --- but oh, so difficult to find! I'll see if my Auntie in Canada can send me some!

Recently I heard about Mrs. Earl Gray tea as well. I don't know what it's like, but it sounds very interesting.

Thanks for sharing!

It sounds so good to me. I love tea. It is the perfect thing to have in the afternoon to get me going again. Thank you for sharing.

I have never had Lady Grey but the next time I go to Canada I will be sure to look for it. Thanks! Kathy

Me too! Twinings Lady Grey is one of my favorites! It tastes so light and almost has a sweetness to it. By the way, I found your blog via the tea blog-at-thon and can't wait until I have more time to come back and explore!

I'm not so much a fan of the earl/lady grey teas, but I recently had a lavender earl grey that was very very nice!

We share the same taste. Lady Grey is my favorite! I am fortunate that it is easy to get in my area. It is sold at my Publix grocery store.

I have to have my shortbread for Christmas, with a hot cup of tea.
