Last Friday was a ‘tea’riffic mail day as the mailman left a package in the mailbox that I wasn’t expecting till next week. I’m so glad it fit into the mailbox as usually a card is left and we have to go into town to pick it up.
Margie, of Tea in the Valley, recently had a give away for her third blogaversary and I was the lucky winner. Wow, was I spoiled with all the gifts … from mug, to napkins, to infuser, to tea, to notecards, and calendars. What fun I had opening the box and looking at each of the things inside.
There was a lovely new tea mug, which I’ve already tried. The first tea I chose was the cranberry orange zinger. Delicious.
There was a variety of teas, some in little packets that got added to my tea chest. An adorable little British telephone box with English breakfast tea, perfect for me as I’m originally from England. The little white tin is Orient Express tea from Margie’s visit to The White House tea room. Not that White House in the USA but a delightful little tea room in Watertown, near Hamilton Ontario.
Look at the lovely tea towel with all sorts of waterfowl birds on it. Just perfect for me as I’m a bird lover and watcher.
A little card inside told me of a magazine, The Love of Tea, which I got a free subscription to. You can get one too by going to their website. It’s an online magazine but has some interesting stories in it.
There was a little calendar and sticky notepad for my fridge, adorable little tea notecards and a Tea Time calendar for beside my computer with lovely photos of teacups for each month.
The mug came in a box with a silicone infuser, in my favourite colour, and a little stitched croissant. I put the croissant on the teacup night light that my daughter bought me several years ago.
Thank you so much Margie. I was nice and toast-tea this morning when I had the Strawberry Shortcake tea and some toast to start off my weekend.
