Singing for Tea!

It's been really fun to read all the posts about the White, Green, Black and Herb of Tea this week from all you tea affectionados! I've really enjoyed the diversity everyone comes from, and how although some of us are 'tea snobs' and others of us prefer 'a teabag from the supermarket', we have a common thread of the ART of tea, no matter what color or style the leaf or cup! The common bond shines through and it's been really neat to observe friendships being formed as participants are commenting on the blogs of others --- and we are getting to know one another through this virtual 'love of tea'. I really appreciate the participation and level of sharing that is taking place.

My thoughts for this week for this theme are still not posted. I got behind at the beginning of the week and am still catching up. My White, Green, Black and Herb of Tea post is in the works and will be up soon! In the meantime, I have two YouTube videos to share with you. I'm a mother of young adult sons; what can I say! I hope you enjoy them and that they bring a smile to your day. The first is called "English Tea" by Paul McCartney. The second is a little more risque', a video by a group called Elemental called "Cup of Brown Joy". It was shared with people on a tea chat group this morning as a fun 'rap' for tea. Be warned! It does a fine job of expressing the joys of tea and follows our theme this week of many different types of tea.

  1. Oh, pooh! My dh hooked up my new computer today, but I guess he didn't hook up the sound, so I'll have to listen to this later:-( I'm so technically challenged, I don't know how to do it myself, and he has already gone to work (teaches at the college tonight) Can't wait to hear these!

  3. These were too funny! I couldn't anderstand half of what the Elemental group was rapping but it was great fun to watch. I loved his running away at the end.
