Friendship & Tea

I love this little gift that I received recently. The directions on the box are worth sharing:

1). Put the kettle on to boil.

2) Warm your favourite teapot

3) Add two tablespoons of tea, one for you and one for me.

4) Pour in boiling water, and while it brews, we’ll talk: We’ll talk about everything. We’ll talk about nothing. Whatever you want to say, I’ll listen. Show me your secrets, your troubles, your joys, your profound thoughts and silliest imagenings. Tell me a piece of juicy gossip. Or your theories on how to make the world a better place. Share a new recipe or an old memory. A brilliant idea or a stupid one. Anything. I’ll be sad if you’re sad, happy if you’re happy. I’ll giggle with you or cry with you. Burden me. Enlighten me. I hope we can continue our conversation for the rest of our lives.

5) Stir and pour.

6) Share.

I knew you would like it!

    Tablespoons of tea? It would corrode the tea spoons and then tan my stomach lining and you could have new leather hand bag!

    I have to say that (given a less knock out (cuppa) I;d love to join in!

    May I bring some flapjacks or ginger nuts?

    I was typing what I saw on the box! ‘Tablespoons of tea’ brought back memories of stewed tea buried somewhere in my childhood.

    Bring on the flapjacks and gingernuts!


A penny for your thoughts...
