Tea Swap

Lady Estelle hosted a tea swap which I participated in and my partner was Deborah from Arkansas.  Her parcel arrived in the mail last week with all kinds of goodies.
Join me for tea as I show you what Deborah sent me.  I'm using my lavender tea pot and mug with wild black currant herbal tea that was one of varieties I received.  The lavender necklace was also one of my gifts.
I'll be serving the tiny tarts for a Valentine's Tea I've invited some friends for on the 11th.  The pastry is butter, cream cheese and flour, and the filling is seedless raspberry jam.
This adorable card brought greetings from my swap partner and there's a packet of English Breakfast tea poking out of the teapot.
Some of the teas, a teapot book mark and 4 different patterns of napkins.
The weather has turned a bit milder after the storm we had Tuesday and Wednesday but it did leave behind lots of snow.
The tea swap was fun and I'll take pleasure in brewing each packet of tea to try.
