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 been asked by Tea Time Magazine to share the following information.
Looking for a thoughtful and memorable gift for a true tea
enthusiast or perhaps a one-of-a-kind weekend getaway? We have the perfect

This unique opportunity to meet and spend time with TeaTime editor Lorna Reeves and other internationally recognized

Tea, an unparalleled weekend in breathtaking Victoria, British Columbia, and an

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
