Tea on the post

I set my tea cup on the post. I plan to celebrate by drinking pure Assam Indian tea from the Brahmaputra Valley in my heart mug. It is from Taylors of Harrogate (England), and I got it while I was in California.


No matter how much I tried to get a good picture of the tea, about all I got was the gold band around the mug and the hearts.


No matter which way I photographed this mug, it was all to celebrate my new post and porch.

Be sure to stop by Kimmie's today and have some tea (coffee, hot chocolate, lemonade, diet soda, or whatever drink you prefer) with all the Tea Tuesday participants. They lead interesting lives that are sure to keep you entertained. Happy Tuesday Tea everyone.

That sounds like a geographically challenged tea - Indian tea from England via California..and that's a perfect tea cup resting post! Happy Tea tuesday (although in spirit only as I don't like tea!)Esther

I love your "tea post!" what a fun play on words :)
I'm so happy for this nice weather - aren't you! The chairs in the background look mighty inviting. I can imagine you serving up iced tea to whoever is working on building your new porch and joining them for some happy conversation in those chairs :)

Happy tea day! Kimmie
