My Favorite Tea Books

I'm so excited about sharing with you ONE of my true loves. As you will be see in the weeks to come.  I have several true loves.  But I do LOVE books about tea.
Entertaining with a Tea Party
Tea Rooms across the United States
Taking Tea Around the World
Ms. Lynn's Tea with recipes and how to create our own special moments.
Laura Childs has written several Tea Shop Mysteries.  I have read 9 total.
I love the recipes included at the end of the book.  In fact I have enjoyed some of the recipes and they are now family favorites.
My all time favorite TEA TIME. I have been a subscriber for years.  What a treasure.      
 Sooooo..... Here they are

I love to sit in the patio and read my tea books

It 's so relaxing to sit and read while having a  great cup of tea. I was thrilled the other day when I found this cup, saucer and dessert plate at the antique mall.  I loved them so much I bought four cups, saucers and dessert plates for $38.00. What a deal? (I hope).  The pattern is 'Sylvia' and the china is Thomas Ivory Bavaria Germany.  The manufacturer is unknown.

The detail in the cup is beautiful and it's translucent.

I just could not resist putting some of my dainty roses into the cup.  And, of course the two little blue birds looking cute.

Thanks for visiting today.
