Spot of Tea? Pip Pip Cheerio!

I am a self-confessed tea-aholic. Tea always seems to know just what to do to make my day brighter. It’s hugs me when I’m sad, it helps me fall asleep when I’m restless, it wakes me up when I’m groggy, it makes books more enjoyable, it makes annoyances more tolerable and it just plain makes life pleasant. It’s always there for me when I need it.

So what better setting to sip your tea than at a tea party?

Some people have different ideas on what a tea party looks like but for me, a tea party is a celebration of women; the perfect opportunity to put every once of estrogen you have to work and unleash your inner girly girl. Polished clothes, dainty finger foods, the smell of sweet florals in your perfume and of course, elegant tea cups are all the main ingredients for a ladylike tea party.

I would like to invite you all to my blog tea party. Cream and sugar anyone?

What are your thoughts on tea and tea parties? Is it a life saver for you like it is for me or do you see it more as something your grandmother drinks and you want no part of? If you love it like me what’s your favorite kind? I love most types but peppermint or ginger with lemon are both my absolute favs.

Tea is amazing. I agree with the bit about Peppermint, but I also dearly love Green tea with peach, and vanilla/caramel chai. Mmm. (:

Lovely post! I adore tea!
Here's a fun bit of information: I work in film, and I recently learned that tea time is mandatory on British film sets. Their union demands it! How fantastic is that?

I love tea, and you my dear are a wonderful tea partner! I have strange tea rituals that take place on my mornings off! I love orange pekoe the best or a good black tea.

Wow Jo, I want to move to Britain. It sounds like they take their tea time dead serious! I've never heard of some of the teas so I'm going to have to keep an eye out for them. I'd love to try Peppermint Basil especially!

I couldn't do without tea and am definetely comming to your party! Have only been waiting to wear this pink dress and indulge in scones, strawberries, cucumer sandwiches and roses! Such a wonderful tradition :I wish i had a butler who'd come in with a tray each day at 4.30 ;)

I love to have tea parties with friends, it always feels so special because I make that little bit more effort. Have to say Earl Grey is my favourite, its delicious and so soothing, followed by a cream cake or a cup cake!!
