A Cup of Friendship




Good Day Ladies!


It's been awhile since I posted, with  her permission 
I do want to share my new teacup that my
friend Debbie over at 
sent me for my birthday.
Thank you so much, you dear sweet Lady!


As I sit here at my computer compiling my post, 
I am so thankful today for all you ladies that
have come to mean so much to me. You certainly
are a blessing to this old  lady!




Just when I needed a boost, this is what I received 
in the mail .
This beautiful cup and loose leaf tea.
The Pu-Erh Tea is from her own state of Colorado.
I looked it up on the internet a theteaspot.com and this is what I found. "aged and fermented pu-erh tea enjoys the good reputation of weight loss tea and heart-health tea as it cuts through fat and decreases cholestorial."  I'll be drinking this everyday, as I need it for my weight and heart! 
It's an organic black tea and the flavor is very tasty.
The label says it's ingredients are:
Black Tea
Pu-Erh Tea
Mallow Flowers
and 
Dark Chocolate Flavoring
Sugar free and Gluten free 


 I have enjoyed it with Boston Creme Cake
and


Club Crackers (they are my favorite cracker)


 The back stamp says it's from
'Grace Teaware'
I just love the pretty lavender flowers
and the design of the cup and saucer. 
Now I think I'll make myself another cup:

Have a Blessed Day!
Sylvia

I'll be joining:

  14. The tiny lavender flowers on your teacup and saucer are so dainty! Grace teaware has so many pretty patterns but I like the shape of this cup and saucer. It is so wonderful to learn of different tea and your information. Hope you have a great week and will take a peek at my post this week!

  34. Sylvia,

    It's always so lovely to have you drop in at Lawn Tea, and I think we might almost be Birthday Twins. What a beautiful gift, and how much you're going to enjoy it for years to come.

    Thank you for your sweet comment on my wisteria poem.

  35. That's such a beautiful cup I'd be afraid to use it. I would lock it up in a safe cabinet where the sunlight wouldn't touch it and it would not get chipped, dropped, or broken. It would be very sad.
