The sun is streaming through the windows, even through my first bleery blink, I know it’s a glorious day.
The blue bells have finally raised their heads after a long, hard winter. Almost as some kind of compensation, the blossom on the Horse Chestnut trees appears even more prolific, the perfumed lilac blossom drifting in the air, like confetti across the perfect blue sky. Oh, that every morning could be like this.
It’s on mornings like these, while I am a good old fashioned fan of strong tea (usually my favourite Yorkshire Gold leaf tea), I am tempted into an excursion.
I happened to find Tea’s me, drawn by the bright yellow label on funky silver bag. Sometimes though, you see great packaging and when you taste the tea, frankly, it is a bit of a disappointment. I’m delighted to report, this is not the case here. Tea’s Me tea’s are organic,with innovative combinations for non caffeine based teas, with delightfully quirky names. I tried Zestea, full of lemon and orange peel, with lemon verbena for extra zing – think sherbet lemons in liquid form, Ticklishly Tasty indeed.
As the tea is without milk, a glimpse of beautiful decoration on the inside of the cup is the driving force
So it is an easy decision this time. I chose a beautiful early 20th century cup, made by Cauldon, simply decorated with a swirling gold pattern on the outside, a vivid blue rim, and a profusion of beautiful roses on the inside, the promise of summer yet to come.
Tempted by the bright summer morning, Tea with Mary Kate encourages you to explore a change from your normal routine, you never know what you might discover!
