Welcome friends for tea this week. I've been organizing my tea cupboard in the kitchen and decided I needed a good quality green tea. I know many of us have been reading the light-hearted tea mysteries written by Laura Childs and Dragonwell Dead brought to mind the mystical tea Dragonwell.

The leaves are hand plucked in the Haungzhou area of the Zhejiang province of China and meticulously pressed in a hot wok.
A toasted crumpet with passionfruit jam is a tasty treat to have with the tea. Both DH and I have an English background and he grew up eating his crumpets with jam. At our house we ate them like pancakes with maple syrup. I think because my dad had such a sweet tooth, he invented this way of eating them. Anyone else ever indulge in crumpets this way?
'New Dawn' is still blooming so I included a rose at my breakfast table. The crumpets are store bought and delicious served either way.
