Litera-Tea



This week. . .

. . .you are invited to join in the Gracious Hospital-i-Tea Blog-a-Thon. Scroll down for more information. The topic for this week is:

March 23 - March 29
Litera-Tea

Share tea from the perspective of literature. Post a tea quote, a verse or poem, or story. Tell about a favorite tea book. This would be a good time to share how you use tea to encourage others. Do you minister to others by sending them tea themed cards to friends and shut-ins? Or another way you use 'tea' to share joy with others? I know some of you do --- so tell your story!

  8. I've really enjoyed everyone's posts about literature and tea. Although many of us have the 'same' (wonderful) books --- I've found some new ones that some have posted as well. It's time for a trip to the library!

    Thanks so much, everyone, for sharing!

  17. Thanks for the Hospital-i-tea Blog-a-thon! I love tea!!! I don't have any tea books,( but certainly my favorites- currently The Republic of Tea's BING CHERRY BLACK TEA-)
    I do send tea to friends who I haven't seen in a while- oftentimes with an enclosed' from the heart poem'!, and to have a cup of tea on me:)...especially when I know that they love it as much as I do.

  21. Hi La Tea Dah!
    I cheated a bit on my post as I was so tangled up last week that I was unable to post on my Teacup-a-story so I just did both on today's post. Hope that is OK. I am so excited to be a part of this blog-a-thon. Thank you for hosting.

    Lots to learn about tea, that is for sure. I was THRILLED to see your picture of the February Snowdrops. I just bought an old house and found these peeking through the Iowa snow. I have never had these at another house- so thanks for identifying them for me.

  44. Thank you for your comment on my litera-tea post about The 12 Teas of Celebration by Emilie Barnes. I realized, in reading others' posts, that we actually do have another "tea" book: "Sheep in a Shop" by Nancy Shaw, a board book in which the sheep stop at a small tea shop. I'll have to incorporate that into another week. :)
