Several weeks ago one of my good friends was in town for a visit and blessed me with a gift I KNEW I would have to show on a Friday S&T! Then, we got our unexpected call, and life has changed a bit - and there was no time to post for S&T's because I was busy bonding and rocking our new little one.
The little one is fed, rocked and snuggled down in her bed for the night; and tonight I have time to post about my gift.
My friend had to move away because of her husband's job and I have missed her since the day she left. There are have been visits and on this particular visit she brought me a pink tea cup and nesting tea pot. I absolutely love it! (I also loved that it was pink - the new favorite color of mine!)She also accompanied the tea set with a gift card to a fabulous premium tea shop here in town. I went to the tea store and purchased the most unique brewing pot that you could have. I have enclosed pictures to see how you brew the tea.
(First you put hot water into the cup)(Place in the amount of loose leaf tea and close the lid to allow to brew)
(When tea is finished brewing, drain tea by pushing up on the bottom of the cup; emptying contents of cup into desired tea pot or cup)
I also spent a little of my money to purchase some special loose leaf tea flavors. I purchased English Breakfast , (my personal favorite all time tea - and the loose leaf is MUCH better than any bagged tea!) Detox Tea - (this one was very good and had a wonderful cinnamon taste to it) Memory Aid - (hey, anything to help those fleeting name lapses - I AM almost 40 you know!). I have purchased some other flavors too and loved them! The brewing cup has been a wise investment of my friends money.
Also, every time I use my tea pot - I think of her - miss her and thank God for such a wonderful friend. Good news, she is coming for a visit soon and we will enjoy an evening together listening to the kids play, laughing together and this time I will personally introduce her to our new little one and I am thinking that as we chat, she will be in the rocking chair snuggling with my new little blessing; and while she is rocking - I think I will have to enjoy me another great cup of tea!!
Trust you have a wonderful weekend.
