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.
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!!
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
