Tea Time Tuesday

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday my lovely tea friends~ This is our first tea party in the month of June and even though it doesn't feel like it here on the Island, Summer is on its way!

What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade. ~
Gertrude Jekyll - excerpt from Victoria May/June 2011

Today I am sharing a new tea cup trio I found at my favourite tea room. I was very happy to discover that it was half price so I snatched it up right away.

I love the roses on it. There is a little red, fuchsia, pink, and yellow complimented by green leaves which make this a bright and perky tea cup; perfect for this time of year!

The pattern is called Rose Petals, made of fine bone china by Maxwell and Williams.

Here is a view of the other side with a wee more pink. The cup has a simple loop handle which makes it very comfortable to hold.

Sweet spring, full of sweet days and roses, a box where sweets compacted lie. ~ George Herbert

How beautiful my new tea cup looks with all the pink flowers on these pages of Victoria magazine.

I find Victoria so inspiring as I'm sure you do as well.

Better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one. ~ Ancient Chinese Proverb

...and Lemon ginger tea.

I find lemon ginger tea helps to settle my stomach and I love that I can sip on a cup of this instead of using a remedy from the drug store. And yes, that's a heart shaped shortbread cookie you see. I can't help it, I love shortbread!

Did you know that Ginger has wonderful medicinal qualities? It boosts your energy and metabolism, helps to reduce the severity of colds, aids in indigestion, treats nausea, eases migraines, among other things. It tastes good too!

Perhaps you would like some Rhubarb pudding with your tea.

This is just freshly baked and it's warm and yummy with a dollop of whipped cream on it.

Next week I will be hosting my Father's Day Tea. On June 20, I will be hosting a Summer Dreams Tea. On June 21, Kathy @ A Delightsome Life is hosting her seasonal party, Savoring Summer. Please be sure to join us for all these parties.

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy." ~ Romans 15:13
