The Year in Tea 2012

I always think I am not doing a review post, but then I realize I have one thing I do consistently each month and that is a cup of tea.  So here it goes, a review of 2012 in tea.
In January I had the rose tea.

For February there was the Valentine's Day Tea.

In March the Irish Tea.

In April, to remember the anniversary of the Titanic, I had a Titanic Inspired Tea on an old steamer trunk.

And for May, of course, I had a Mother's Day Tea.

In June I had tea on my newly painted little white chair.

In July I had an Anne of Green Gables Tea.

In August I had a fresh vine of bittersweet that looked so lovely with my blue and white.

In September I had a Fall Tea Tray.

In November I served Dutch Apple Cake with tea..or maybe that is coffee...

In December I had a cuppa tea with my winter scarf and a great book of Christmas stories.
So, I really did have something I could review in 2012.  May everyone have a fantastic 2013!

Seeing your tea cup post reminds me of how much I do love grabbing my special tea cup, sitting, and planning. I need to do this more often. Thank you for the little nudge reminding me of this simple pleasure.
