To get in on the latest trend lately, I'm giving away this tea themed scarf. To enter, just leave a note between now and Thursday evening on why you like tea. Make it funny, a poem, a lifestyle- whatever- just enter & I'll look over each entry and decide which I find the best! I'll post the winner on Friday. Good Luck!

What can I say - I've been a tea granny for almost as long as I can remember. Mom & Dad drank coffee (shocking, eh?) but I've always preferred tea. My early tea drinking consisted of tea brewed from Tetley tea bags (in Canada) and was taken with milk, no sugar.

My favorite morning brew is still a bracing cup of black tea (Assam, Ceylon or blend). Lately I've branched out to include green (for the numerous health benefits), oolong and sometimes even white or herbal.

I'm including a little poem you might enjoy:

Teapot is on, the cups are waiting,
Favorite chairs anticipating,
No matter what I have to do,
My friend there's always time for you.

Thanks for your giveaway - the scarf is beautiful.

I come from a long line of tea-lovers! My family is Irish, so we always say we have tea in our veins. ;) I love all tea, but I'm a black tea lover mostly. Just plain, no milk, no sugar. (I drink iced tea plain too!)

May you always have
Walls for the winds,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all your heart might desire!
— Irish Proverb

Have a wonderful day!

So last night I worked up this great little limerick about why I want to win the scarf, but then I realized it failed to mention why I like tea! Oops! So ... I'm just going to go for the straightforward approach.

I like tea because it has truly opened up an entire new world for me. Let me count the ways:

-- I like the beverage itself and the never-ending varieties the blenders seem to keep coming up with!
-- I like the ritual of "taking tea," whether it's a quiet cup at home by myself or one taken in the presence of laughter and girlfriends.
-- The accoutrements of teatime allow me to indulge my collecting passion while also resulting in a collection of items which I can use and enjoy with others. (I don't want pieces that are just "for show." Use it or lose it, I say!)
-- Tea has helped educate me by leading me into studies of horticulture, chemistry, geography, design and many other areas.
-- Our mutual love of tea in "blog land" has allowed me to form genuine friendships with some of the loveliest people, women I'd probably never have met otherwise, and who wouldn't be grateful for that!
