Would you care to sit with me for a cup of English Tea?


As promised I'd love to share afternoon tea with you! Today we're featuring Red Berry infused tea from Fortnum & Mason in London. I love the way the tea bag looks so delicate and how fragrant the berry tea leaves are!



This is how it looked just after a few seconds of steeping....



Very very bright berry indeed! The color was so perfect for Valentine's Day....


...I added a couple of ginger biscuits and took a deep sigh of relaxation....

Today I'm the lucky recipient of the Sisterhood Award from my sister Michelle over at Chocolate and Marmalade Tea. Thank you sis! I love what it represents! So here are the rules of engagement:
