Hello lovely friends! Thanks so much for dropping by to say g'day. Will you stay for a quick cuppa with me?

Tea is liquid wisdom. ~Anonymous

It seems like forever since I have joined in the weekly Tea Party Link-ups that happen every Tuesday in Blogland! I am so happy to be finally joining in again today! This week I am sharing pictures of all of the tea parties I have had over the last couple of years. Some pictures are from home and some are from abroad. I think you might get the sense once you have seen them all that I am a big fan of taking tea!

Drinking a daily cup of tea will surely starve the apothecary.

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves - slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.
