Tea Wreaths

{update: If you'd like to join in with the tea swap 2011, check out this post!}

As promised, here is the advent tea wreath in its entirety. With so many bright and interesting tea bags, I thought it would be fun to create a colour chart of sorts, so during advent I'll be working my way through a rainbow of teas! 


Now, for a round up of other lovely tea wreaths:





And, of course, the Kojo Designs beauty that inspired it all.

So far, we've sampled Lipton's Asian white tea, which was deliciously light and unusual, and the Twinings Traditional English, which was perfect with a chocolate biscuit. 


Up today: The Emperor's Bride, a Finnish tea in a beautiful red packet. Off to put the kettle on right now...

Thanks, Brooke. It's all about making sure there's always time for tea, you know!

Astrid, I was thinking of you when I wrote the "red" post and hoping you'd join in. It was all I could do to not slip "red red completely red" into the post somewhere...Thanks!

Love the pegs on Kojo's design. Tea Wreaths - could not confusing if you'd got a lisp! ;D

Okay - I meant could 'get' confusing. That's what I get for taking the micky out of a speech impediment.

Although when I was young and I had a brace my parents repeatedly made me say sausages!

Such a great idea - if only i wasn't so stuck in my ways and only drank one type of tea! Make sure you keep me in mind for your pegs next year!

Astrid said...

Kate, you could have a single-colour wreath, where every day is the same type of tea! Yes, I'll keep you in mind, thanks.
