Crostata Tea …

my tea post today is short and sweet as I celebrate summer with no need to turn on the oven to enjoy this buttery crostata from a nearby market full of fresh peaches and raspberries and slivered almonds…

 Chocolate Puerh tea in a pottery tumbler that we picked up in the amazing pottery town of Seagrove, North Carolina several years ago…

be sure and visit Kimmie for more Tea on Tuesday stops…

    the other day, on the craft fair, there was a booth of hand-mixed teas. We bought a pack of 3 (2 black tea mixes, one white) and had a nice chat with the owner, who very kindly offered us samples. Tea bonds people 🙂

  14. I am sure that tasted as divine as it looks. Chocolate tea, this is something I’ve not heard of before, then again I am not a tea drinker (I know, shame on me). I could always have a mug of hot chocolate instead, if it’s on offer!!!
    This quote works in such harmony with your post. Just sitting and being in this setting would make anyone happy.
