Welcome to Friendship Tea, a blog about the daily happenings in the life of Linda, a tea enthusiast, who enjoys travel and trip planning, and is passionate about family, friends, life in Kentucky, and all things TEA.
I have met several very nice ladies across the USA through online tea chat groups. I had the pleasure of meeting two of those special ladies, Susan and Gwen, for tea at Miss Annabelle's Tea Parlor in Loveland, Ohio on Saturday. We chatted about tea, travel, family and online tea friends. We had a wonderful afternoon, drank many cups of tea, and look forward to getting together around the tea table with more tea friends in the future!
"Find yourself a cup of tea; the teapot is behind you. Now tell me about hundreds of things." ~Saki
When the world is all at odds And the mind is all at sea Then cease the useless tedium And brew a cup of tea. There is magic in its' fragrance, There is solace in its' taste; And then laden moments vanish Somehow into space. And the world becomes a lovely thing! There's beauty as you'll see; All because you briefly stopped To brew a cup of tea. ~ Source unknown
