Being in a blue mood is not necessarily a bad thing. Blue is tranquil and soothing. It partners perfectly with tea.
Blue Willow china has been a favorite of mine since I was a young girl. I chose a Twinings Indian Spiced Chai today. I had never tried this brand before, but I’m sure to buy it again. Of all the chai I’ve tried (with the exception of the recipe I got from Patty of Magpie’s Nest last year) Twinings chai is undoubtedly the best. The package suggests adding milk and sugar, but after tasting it as is, I added nothing. It was tasty, tasty all by its self.
The delicate filling of the crispy Royal Dansk wafer went nicely with the spicey chai.
Just for the fun of it I used a cloth napkin embellished with pale blue embrodery. A cloth napkin always adds a little extra special touch…and we’re worth it.
When I sat down with my cup of tea my plan was to read a few pages of a book my sweetheart picked up at the thrift store. (Notice it also sports a pretty shade of blue.) The title sounded like a great idea…but company came and I abandoned the idea of reading for a good long visit with my son-in-law. John Stossel will go back on the pile of reading to get around to later. He’s such a good guy I will get back to him. 🙂

* I fudged just a wee bit and took my pictures yesterday. I missed last week’s tea party, and I didn’t want to chance a repeat. One thing for certain…tea is good any day of the week. 🙂
Until next time…
tea, tea, for you and me
me and you
lets have a brew
ooh ooh ooh.
