Shane that blogs at Roses Lace and Brocante has been admiring the Victoria and Tea Time magazines myself and others share for the weekly tea gathering. The only problem is, Shane lives in New Zealand and they aren't available to her. So, we decided to have a magazine exchange.
My parcel arrived with Paris themed wrapping paper, Shane's grandchildren live in France which means she doesn't get to see them that often. The magazines I received are NZ Life and Leisure and the New Zealand Gardener. Both offered good reading and I learned about plants and food not familiar to me.
The sweet little card gave a nod to my love for tea and to my surprise there was also a lovely notebook, doily, package of nail files and a tin of Harney and Son's Mother's Bouquet tea.
As we head into fall in the northern hemisphere, New Zealand is entering spring. The tea in the tin is a blend of chamomile flowers with orange flavours, a bouquet to honour all mothers and the euphoric essence of spring.
I think Victoriana Rose from Paragon will be the perfect teacup to drink my new tea from.
