Heartwarming Steaming Hot Tea

"It was George Eliot who earnestly inquired, 'Reader, have you ever drunk a cup of tea?' There is something undeniably heartwarming and conversation-making in a cup of steaming hot tea. . . It is an ideal prescription for banishing loneliness. Perhaps it is not so much the tea itself, as the circle of happy friends eager for a pleasant chat."

Book of Etiquette 1921

LaTeaDa Tea Room, Tillamook, Oregon


  1. Your tea conversations have been lovely lately. Love that tearoom. I need to go again.

  2. No, it's the tea! LOL! It must be a tea afternoon as this is the third place I've discussed tea today. Specifically, I've been discussing Raspberry Zinger tea from Celestial Seasonings...hmmm...wonderful stuff.

  3. I have so enjoyed your posts about tea time lately. Love all the pretty pics as well. God bless you.

  4. La Tea Dah, I did not know you had a tea room. Good for you. Wish I lived in Oregon, so I could go to it! Sincerely, Susan from

  5. My husband and I share tea quite often, especially in this cold and blustery weather. Today we had pumpkin pie flavored coffee. He is not a coffee drinker, but he is kind enough to drink a cup just for the sharing time with me. You blog is so pretty. Please visit mine sometime.
    great pictures on your blog!

  6. Hi, my friend -
    I think it's time for an early morning cup of tea! Love the photo of the tearoom in Tillamook. I wanted to go there in September when we were there with my sweetheart's siblings. I asked my sisters-in-law if they would like to have tea there and they said 'no way'. Decided not to pursue it until sometime when I can go with a friend - or with my sweetheart - or by myself for a quiet tea experience. Need to head that way sometime soon!

  7. Looks like a beautiful tea room!
