My Favorite Tea

Here is my first post for the Tea Blog-a-thon! I hope you enjoy this post. To read more of them, click here.


I have been wanting to talk about this for a while so here is my best tea story and it comes from the land of tea and crumpets, England.

I was in England in the summer of 2006 on a scholarship from my University. And while in my favorite place while I was there, the Cotswolds, in a little hamlet called Moreton-in-Marsh, I happened upon a small church which was celebrating it's yearly flower festival.

After viewing all the lovely flowers I found they were selling cups of tea for 50p. I asked for a cup. It was the most heavenly tea I had ever drank. Before this trip, I was not a tea fan, now it is one of my most favorite things in the world.

The very sweet lady, who made that delicious cup of tea, came and talked to me about a quarter of an hour, then offered me a second cup at no charge. How could I possibly say no to that! I ended up spending an hour talking about the Lord, England and America with her and I will never forget what a wonderful hour it was.


Post Script: The picture at the top of my blog is the place where I stayed while in Moreton-in-Marsh, Tree Tops Bed and Breakfast.

I remember visiting a similar church flower festival in England. In the garden I had some Orange squash(?)to drink.

Oh how marvelous. Tea became more interesting to me once I travelled to England in my college years too. The B&B looks great. I loved the Cotswolds...

We visited Moreton-on-Marsh several times (and will again soon). We had cream tea at the Marshmallow Tea Room. I'm glad you joined Gracious Hospitality's blog-a-thon and shared your beautiful story.

Tea, faith, and friendship, what a winning combination. I love the names of all the places you mentioned, insert sigh here, I'd love to go to England! How very blessed you are to have had the experience! Lovely post!

This is my first time visiting your blog. It is such a peaceful place.
I have always wanted to visit the Cotswold area. It looks like it has to be the most beautiful place on earth.
Thank you and have a wonderful day.
