Surprise Tea

Ya'll know I love surprises (big or little) which arrive in the mail. 

Today I received a package from Paula.  She and I met years ago when we were both Longaberger® consultants and reconnected through blogging.  Between Christmas and New Year's, Paula  took her 13 year-old son to Washington to visit her Grandpa.  I enjoyed following her adventures, including a day in Seattle, via Facebook and her blog.  Check it out here.  It has been many years since I visited Seattle and the Historic Pike Place Market. 

I was so surprised when I walked to the mailbox and found a package of Cinnamon-Orange MarketSpice signature tea, a catalog, information and recipes from Paula in today's mail.  I love it!! 

Thanks Paula!!

What a special treat and friend.

At the tea expo a year ago when we were closing down the Market Spice booth gave me a basket of goodies. The same tea was in the basket. It was a fun surprise gift too.

A surprise tea gift from a friend? That's absolutely the BEST kind of mail!

I remember the pen pals I had years ago...itseems odd looked in magazines andthere were choices for pen pals who had similar interest. I guess our blogging is today's version of that!

So unusual to see another "Paula" name...I'm relatively new to your blog, Linda...I should have guessed you were a consultant of easily speak with people, organize parties (teas), and I've noticed a L. basket or two in some of your photos! I have only driven thru Berea, KY on our way to Hilton Head Island; maybe someday I'll stop! Thanks for sharing all things tea (btw, I enjoy Lady Earl Gray-and lived in England as a small girl-I'm an air force brat).
