While at Disney's Magic Kingdom last month, I spied an adorable tea set in a gift shop that I had to have.The Alice in Wonderland teapot holds 5 cups of tea. The tea cups and matching saucers are a generous size as well. I only wish there were matching sugar and cream bowls.
Well, of course I HAD to get a tin of Wonderland tea as well.
Here is a pic of the lid. I honestly bought this only for the tin. I fully expected the tea inside to be undrinkably bad. I was very pleased to discover the tea is quite tasty! It is a blend of black tea with ginger, peach and apricot flavors (but no mustard--don't let's be silly!) Under the directions for brewing it says, "Start at the beginning (and when you get to the end...stop!)"
I invited my friend Stephanie over for tea. She brought some wonderful cranberry orange scones.
My husband, Mr. Lucky, travels alot and buys scones at every opportunity and he claims hers are the best he has ever tasted. Yes friends, they are that good!
She also brought me some bamboo knitting needles. How nice was that!
We had a lovely time and even got some crocheting in. Nothing brightens up a cold rainy day like having a friend over for tea!
As a final note, my kooky crazy Christmas cactus is at it again! Decided to send out a few blooms. I have had this plant for 20 years and have never had it bloom as often as it has this year!
