I prefer my tea loose over teabags. 

I think it tastes better. 

Moreover,  I like the process of creating the tea.

Measuring out just the right amount of aromatic and colorful tea 

filling the pot with boiling water

and leaving it to steep

i am drinking Irish Breakfast

which is my go-to tea

It is late afternoon

a bit late for tea-time

the birds are plentiful at the feeders on the porch

the wild beach roses along the grassy dunes have bloomed overnight

their wonderful aroma is drifting gentle

across the way through my windows

let the field be joyful, and all that is therein:

then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice

Psalm 96:12










  1. Lovely teapot and post. Enjoy and have a happy day!

  2. Darn, I just lost my message. Just yesterday I resurrected my tea cozy and made two pots of lemon verbena tea that I purchased from The Tea Source store. Tasted much better than my tea bags. It's hard to resist buying more tea pots, isn't it?!

  3. That is a cute teapot; love the handle! Your little island sounds lovely. I live on an island too and the beach roses are a welcome sight once they appear. I have roses at home here that smell just like them and I am eagerly awaiting their budding. We are waiting for things to warm up here so we can get out to the beach and take our walks. Thank you for joining me for tea and enjoy your day.


  4. I love tea............any time.

  5. Love the pot! I don't drink tea, I am a hot water addict, but I still like to warm the water in something pretty!

  6. It does taste better, but I always say a cup of tea, no matter how it's served it can cure anything! Especially, tea for two! Everything is best when shared!

  7. I love the teapot...not only a lovely shape, but blue and white. I alternate tea bags and loose tea...sometimes I just need to measured peace of brewing. Sounds like an idyllic island...the world around us indeed a gift of His. Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  8. Beautiful and such a peaceful and calm post. I love your teapot and also enjoy Irish Breakfast tea. I can imagine your beach roses are gorgeous and the aroma beautiful. I am surrounded by roses too only they grow around a pool. So enjoyed my visit here to your lovely blog and now a new follower too. Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment.
    Have a Blessed Day!

  9. What a lovely place you live.

  10. I JUST received a tea pot as a gift VERY similar to this one....just beautiful

  11. Such a lovely teapot...and a lovely post!

  12. What a cute teapot! I also prefer loose leaf tea, but tend to use teabags at work because they're more convenient.

  13. I have never tried loose leaf tea but now I must try it!


  14. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely post with Roses of Inspiration. It is truly joy to have you at the party. Enjoy your day, my dear. Hugs!

  15. Lovely post! I also prefer loose leaf tea--you can get all sorts of more interesting flavors!
