An amazing Tea & lilacs

It's amazing, all-right. I'd say it's my new favorite tea blend.

It tastes even better in my Mintons china cup made in England.

The ingredients in this heavenly blend are...
Orange blossoms
lemon zest
& Rosehip.

Sounds good, huh?

Our first sign of Spring at the mouse-house was spotting a Robin at the feeders. The second sign came today as I was cleaning up around the property and saw lilac buds on the trees. We have a few lilac trees at the entrance to the property, right at the gate, and they are beautiful when in bloom.

Here's some photos from last year's lilacs.

I put them everywhere.

So, I'll just sit here with my new-found favorite tea and dream of lilac-time.
 I'd better warn Audrey she may be wearing them around her head.

"I think not, crazy lady."
hugs, Deb

  14. Tea and lilacs! Could you think of anything more perfect together. I've read that Fortnum and Mason is selling honey made by the Dutchess of Cornwall's bees and it has hints of camomile! I'm not a big honey person but that sounds pretty wonderful to me.
    I'll add that to tea and lilacs. Oh yes and a wisteria vine.

  15. Your tea sounds fabulous. And Audrey is ALWAYS fabulous!

  16. Such a beautiful teacup! Thanks for joining Home Sweet Home!
