A time to go green (Tea Tuesday)

Today I'm sharing this lovely cup of Oolong tea with my Tea Tuesday friends. What makes a good cup of tea? It is strong, robust, and has a nice aroma. You could say the same for coffee, but then you wouldn't see the lemon slices I added so you would know this was really tea! I even brought out my favorite tea cup and saucer, a placemat that has a green border, and a couple of green candles. Great accessories to share tea with friends, even if those friends live in blogland.

Speaking of blogland, one of my dear friends, Dianne at Art Beneath the Cottonwoods is having a giveaway.  She has no idea (until she reads this) that I am telling you about her giveaway, since that is NOT a requirement for entry.  All you have to do is leave a comment on her blog post, a criterion I insist on when I recommend a giveaway.  So please visit her blog because you'll be amazed and impressed with her art.  The giveaway lasts until November 25.

Besides Tea Tuesday, I'm sharing this for Day 13 of AEDM.  Feel free to join us for tea today.

I love both coffee and tea. Lately I've been drinking Organic Roasted Dandelion Root. It has a unique, robust flavor that is also good for the liver. I found it on sale at Target and thought I'd give it a go. Thanks for the heads up on the ephemera giveaway. I swung by and told her you sent me.

The above deleted comment was mine as I posted the comment I had intended to post on Dianne's blog on yours instead. I wish I could blame that on a blogger problem!!!

Anyway, thanks for introducing another wonderful artist to me. I love the tea cup!
