MY 28TH TEACUP AND TEA THINGS TUESDAY & TEA TIME TUESDAY

Hi everyone,

It's been awhile since awhile since I've participated in any of the tea parties :) :)  I had a lovely little tea for myself last week, however life happened and it just wasn't something I felt like sharing.

Here's my simple and unusual tea for Tuesday.  This is how I have tea for myself most days. Well, correction, when I'm having ICED tea, this is usually what I do. 
























I HAD A VERY SIMPLE TEA TODAY. A NICE MASON GLASS  JAR OF ICED RASPBERRY TEA AND MY FAVORITE WALKER SHORTBREAD BUTTER COOKIES :)

I think this is the most unusual tea I've ever done. That "teacup" is certainly very unusual, wouldn't you agree? Hee hee hee..I think it's funny, but it works. That iced tea was so GOOD.  Where are the ice cubes, you ask? I FORGOT!!!  Again, it's all part of my unusual tea.

Add to that, that all the Walker cookies insisted on breaking in half.  So I wanted nice cookies for my photo...but ladies, let me tell you, they still tasted GREAT!!!! 

The cookies are in a little dessert plate. It's made by a company called Pope-Gosser. I'm not sure of the pattern name. However, I do like it's creamy white background with the beautiful pink petals.

 What do you like for tea when it gets warm outside?  Yesterday, it was in the high 70s..maybe 78 degrees Fahrenheit. That's actually a nice summer day . However, in Oregon it can also be very humid. so it felt like it was hotter than it actually was.  I had the windows open and the lights turned off. 

That's the news from Oregon today. Love and hugs, Heather :)

I love Herbal Iced tea - no sugar just brewed and poured over ice.

Hi Heather :)

Do y'all not drink out of Mason jars in Oregon? ;) A lot of cafes and restaurants serve tea in those in the South because they are nice and big and they just look awesome :) Very countrified! I feel at home looking at this picture lol. And walker cookies are yummy!
Have a pleasant evening, Heather :)

Hugs,

Susan

I think Mason jars are pretty and they are well suited for ice tea! We are still playing with spring here--cold, rainy, warm, sunny and so forth:)
I don't remember your area being humid--just hot--but usually it is summer when I am down there I think.
As for iced tea--something fruity with a little raw sugar or honey would be my choice, but I love any kind of iced tea:)
Blessings,
Aimee
