T Stands For Just The Basics

 

As you can see, I'm set up to create a cup (or more) of tea.
 
The tea is loose leaf and called Windsor Castle.  It is a blend of black teas from Ceylon and India.  In addition to the cup and loose leaf tea,
 
I have included a tea infuser and a teabag caddy.

I've shown you mine, now please share yours.   It can be gifts you received, photos, a place you visited, movies, postcards, mail art, junk mail, catalogs, books, sketches, mixed media, drawings, paintings, tags, scrapbooking, or other art that is digital, hybrid, or traditional, as long as it in some way relates back to a drink, any drink.  Regardless, please share below and Bleubeard and I, along with the rest of the T gang will be by to visit.   Please link only your T post and not your blog in general.  Bleubeard would like to remind you that old photos are acceptable because they may be taken any time, not just on Tuesday and certainly not just this year.
