Tea and Thee~Time for Tea Giveaway

A few days ago someone asked me why I named by blog Tea and Thee. If you don't me that is a good question and with the diverse content I blog about you may wonder why I choose this name as well. Last year when I was thinking about what I would name my blog I tossed about many names having do do with being frugal of healthy living but I didn't really want to narrow my topic as I just wanted to share the things I love. One night I was cooking dinner and looked up at the picture I have hanging over my stove. It has a picture of a teapot and it says Time for Tea and Thee. I struck me that the perfect name for my blog is Tea and Thee. I love tea. I love to collect tea cups and tea pots. I love to read tea books. More than any of these things I love to share a cup of tea with my friends and family or just anyone who wants to share a cup.

Many years ago I spent time in Scotland and one thing I loved is whenever I went into some one's home they would offer me a cup of tea and a sweet. I may not always have the sweet but I sure do have the tea and I will offer you a cup. I try to offer everyone who comes into my home a cup. To me sharing a cup of tea says I will take time out of my busy day to stop and let you know I care. I drink tea alone but I prefer to have someone to share it with.

Since I have started reading blogs there are many of you that I feel like I have sat down and shared a cup of tea. So I have decided that I would like us to come together on Tuesdays to share a cup of tea. Starting next week Tuesday I will put up a Mr. Linky where you can share your tea post from the past week. I hope you will join me.

To kick off Time for Tea I would like to do a giveaway of one of my favorite teas from my favorite tea company. I have 1 oz of Lichee Congou tea form Simpson & Vail to giveaway. To enter visit Simpson & Vail and come back here and leave a comment telling me which of their teas you would love to try.

I Love Simpson & Vail Tea and they are a great company. My favorites are of course Earl Grey with extra bergamont. Then I love Duke Cardiff, Lichee, Rootbeer and Scottish Blend.

Yummy. If you live in CT and can get to their location you can get a lot of tea for a little $$.

Beth, The Black-Blue Mist sounds good with apricot, mango and marigold leaves. They really have several that look good. I'll have to tell my daughter. She loves tea, too.
