    Growing up Tea Time was every meal with my maternal grandparents who were from Ireland. Regardless of the season a cup or two of hot tea was always poured from the Rockingham teapot to all gathered around the table.
    Today I fondly remember those fun and wonderful times.

    • Donna C
      July 25, 2023 at 6:11 pm

      I love raspberry and orange teas! So delicious!

    Living in a retirement community tea time would be a great monthly idea for our get together. What great ideas I could have with this book. Thanks for sharing these awesome ideas.

    You and Pam are the two blogs I view after morning devotions. Both of you lay a beautiful table, in wonderfully cared-for gardens. Earl Gray is a wonderful tea, although I love exploring all varieties according to the seasons. Thank you for all your suggestions. I have tried several recipes with my Mah Jongg group.

    Good morning, Mary. What a beautiful round-up of all things tea. Tea on Tuesdays is so much fun and I have enjoyed sharing it with you. All of your beautifully presented treats have made me hungry this morning. Stay cool and Happy Tuesday!

  5. Vicki Moretta
    July 25, 2023 at 6:45 am

    My favorite teatime treat is any tea, as long as it is in my “Old Country Roses” tea cup, along with a madeleine cookie..or two!

  6. Rita C.
    July 25, 2023 at 6:46 am

    What a great year of monthly celebrations. I found myself jumping back to 3 or 4 posts, sometimes for the food fare, other times for the table setting details. I could feel the seasons as I scrolled through the year, love that! Although I’m not a tea enthusiast, I sure enjoyed this anniversary post with my morning coffee. Congrats on your one year celebration, and good luck to all the readers participating!

    July 25, 2023 at 6:56 am

    What a fun post and while I don’t want to wish the summer away I look forward to making (or remaking) many of your ideas. My favorite tea is chai and almost any white tea. My sweet tooth says any of the treats you described would be delicious!

  8. Cindi
    July 25, 2023 at 6:58 am

    While I adore all your tea posts and pictures the one I saved to Pinterest was the lamb cookies….they were just too cute! I plan to refer back to this entire post often! Peace.

    What a great post this morning! I’ve just returned from N.England and Scotland with a huge tin of Scottish tea. After seeing your post I’m ready to open it and dig in. And bake some of your yummy looking sweets. I’m sure being able to browse through that beautiful book would be the icing on my tea biscuits!

    Scrolling through all the pictures of the different Tea Party settings, which are all beautiful, I kept thinking that a Tea Party could be special for one person. I for one don’t always make that up of Tea special. My favorite is Jasmine. So going forward I am going to try to sit down with a pretty tea cup and enjoy.

    Congratulations on your anniversary. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the Tea time posts. I love a good English Breakfast tea anytime. I am pinning the Lemon Freezer Bars recipe. It reminds me of the Lemon icebox pie my mother made but the bar form is more practical.

    I used to be an Earl Grey woman, but a few years ago I tried a Vanilla Caramel and along with a lavender or vanilla scone, I found the perfect way to end my day. This post has so many great ideas—every Tuesday in one place. I Pinned the peony cookies photo, delicious looking and beautiful!!

    My garden club is having its opening meeting in Early September, and we are starting with High Tea and this post is very inspirational—especially the peony cookies! Every photo is absolutely beautiful and I would look forward to having a copy of this beautiful book to inspire me during my tea moments!

    July 25, 2023 at 7:52 am

    Good morning! I was so tickled to see the roundup of tea blogs this morning! What a beautiful year. I have looked forward to and enjoyed each one! My favorite tea has become a variety of Stash’s, depending on time of day and season. The top one is their double bergamot. I have had to go to decaf and their decaf double bergamot is as delicious as the caffeinated one. I love their peppermint at bedtime and pomegranate raspberry is wonderful iced or hot.

    My sister and I do two teas a year for my two daughters. We do a spring tea and pull out all our fancy dishes and crystal. The second is a fall tea for the youngest daughter’s birthday. She has had a traumatic brain injury and going out is hard for her. She loves all the special treats at the birthday tea we do at home.

    Having scones with tea elevates the event to “tea party” status!

    Fabulous inspiration. I like many teas, green, chai, mint etc. I pinned the 9 photo picture, but will come back later to review others as I need time to absorb these. . . .thanks, your food and tablescapes are over the top.

  35. Amy Kaminski
    July 25, 2023 at 10:38 am

    I love a nice mint tea in the morning and in the evening chai is my favorite. Of course both have to have a nice slice of any kind of quick bread with them but my favorite is always pumpkin bread.

  36. Amy Kaminski

    I can’t tell you how much I have looked forward to your “Tea Time” ideas throughout the year. Each one brings a “sigh” of joy and beauty. I’ve pinned so many recipes and ideas. Having a cup of tea(it varies by the season)and a buttery shortbread cookie is such a treat and a lovely way to relax for a bit each day. Sharing it with a friend is even better! Thank you for bringing beauty and inspiration into our lives.

  38. Dorinda Selke
    July 25, 2023 at 10:56 am

    Good Morning Mary! My favorite treat with any kind of tea is a scone that my husband and I had on our honeymoon every afternoon in Bermuda. The chef at the hotel was kind enough to share the recipe. I love it with a touch of butter and honey. I have enjoyed your blog posts and all they contain for many years ! Hugs, Dorinda

  39. July 25, 2023 at 11:02 am

    Congrats on a one year anniversary. Your roundup is amazing. I love seeing everything in one place. Those egg salad baskets are too cute. I would love a frozen lemon bar with my cup of tea. Mary, you should have your own book. I am a subscriber plus I pinned. Thank you for sharing your artful posts.

  40. July 25, 2023 at 11:02 am

    Happy one year anniversary Mary! It is such a treat to revisit all your incredibly beautiful, creative and delicious tea parties from the past year! They are all so special~ I won’t enter the giveaway since I have already been a lucky winner and one the wonderful book, The Art of Tea.

  41. Dorinda Selke

    July 25, 2023 at 11:18 am

    What a beautiful blog! I love all things tea time, but my favorite is the scone. It is so versatile in shape and flavor and I don’t think it is tea time, without a good scone. I pinned the post of the cook book with the bird cup and saucer. Both are so pretty! I so enjoy a beautiful tablescape, I believe any hostess that creates one, is telling her guests just how much she loves them. It is a true compliment and pleasure to be invited to a beautifully decorated tea.

  44. Carole E Klopschinski
    July 25, 2023 at 11:31 am

    Hi Mary…thank you again for such a lovely post…all the good things you have shared in one place for the ultimate tea!! My favorite tea time treat are scones….any kind and must have clotted cream and lemon curt!!

  45. July 25, 2023 at 11:35 am

    Thank you for this lovely post and this giveaway. Yes, I have been e-mail subscribed for many years. Yours is the ONLY blog I follow. I love it!

    As to my fav tea… I am actually allergic to tea, but “having tea” became a big part of my life when my sister, across country, was going through the worst things a mother could ever go through for a very long time. She loves to “have tea”. We started having virtual tea times together on the phone, during all the worst times. She would have real tea and I would have water (my fav). We would sit together and talk and pray and hold each other across the miles by “having tea” together. It is extremely special to us. If I were to win this, I would send it on to her, the one who has always loved “having tea” and a remembrance of those dark times lightened by love, sisterhood and tea in dainty pretty cups.

    The year of tea inspiration has been beautiful and informative. I have tried several recipes and incorporated numerous ideas. In summer I really enjoy A Midsummer Night’s Tea from Harney and Sons or the Huntington Blend from The Huntington Library in California, along with scones, chocolate bites or lemon tarts and some cashew chicken tea sandwiches or egg salad sandwiches, without the crusts. Love the Tuesday posts!

    Mary, congratulations to you and Pam on your one-year anniversary of Tea on Tuesdays! I love this blog segment and especially loved seeing all of the posts gathered together in this one. I love a good, rich black tea or a fruit flavored tea. Love all of your tea displays and recipes. Would love the book and cup and saucer!! I’m a long time follower.

    Happy Anniversary. I grew up with Irish Grandparents, and had my first cup of tea at the age of three. It
    was mostly milk!!!! But I was hooked. I have drank tea every day of my life. And usually several cups a day.
    My favorite tea pot is your Christmas one.

    Happy Anniversary! Your blog is always a feast for the eyes! Always amazing! Thank you for sharing the beauty with us. And I love the many recipes you share too! My favorite tea is Earl Grey Orange Spice and I have always loved Cranberry Orange Scones. I enjoy lots of teas (and scones) for that matter. But they would be even more special at a table scape as lovely as yours always are.

    What a wonderful collection of teas for a year – great inspiration! I am an email subscriber, and I am a big fan of pinning your gorgeous pics – I have pinned that lemon freezer bars recipe because I want one so badly right now I am have tempted to run to the store and get condensed milk to do so! (it is so hot and that is just a perfect thing to have in summertime!) I am hosting a tea luncheon this wednesday for my 90 year old friend and neighbor who is moving into a assisted living facility many states away to live near her son. She leaves on the 12th and her 90th bday is on the 24th. This will be a birthday farewell luncheon. I am so sad and will miss her so much! She founded our civic women’s group in my little town. Due to her love of social clubs I have made some lifelong friends because of her. ♥

    I do not have this tea book and would be so happy to be a winner. Thank you for the opportunity.

    PS I too have Irish blood and always appreciate your pretty Belleek ware. ♣

      Hi Michele, I’m trying to get in touch with you by email but am afraid they are landing in your spam folder, in which case this probably will too. If you get this message can you check your spam folder? Thank you! ☕

    Mary, congratulations on celebrating a year of Tea on Tuesdays! You know I, too, share your love of tea and all the special traditions that go along with having tea. You and Pam have created a very special monthly focus with Tea on Tuesdays. We all benefit from your wealth of teatime ideas, and I am certainly inspired by each of your wonderful posts. This post is indeed photo heavy, and how fortunate your readers are to have this compilation of all these fabulous teatime posts full of ideas for year round tea parties. I could never single out a favorite! Thank you! Thank you! Creating a special Board and pinning each one to have quick reference. Thanks for the links. I know this was time consuming to compile. You have it all beautifully organized.

    Hi Mary, your photos are beautiful!!! Tea time is always special for me. My favorite is a green tea called Yerba Mate from South America. It is caffeine heavy, loaded with calcium (naturally) and it’s delicious. In the evenings, I like a blended tea for inducing sweet dreams such as Sleepy Time. In the hot summer months, I brew a dark tea flavored with Raspberry or Apricot. thank you for this beautiful post and the giveaway.

    Your Tea with the Bees table is incredible and inspired me to get out my Nordic bee hive pan to bake up a batch of mini cakes. I also had to order a few bee accessories for my dining room including the gorgeous table runner.
    I’ll be keeping busy as a bee indoors ( there’s a terrible heatwave here on Long Island) thanks to your unBEElievable inspiration!

    Mary, I’m at the beach on vacation but had a few minutes this morning to enjoy your Anniversary Tea post. You and Pam have outdone yourselves this year! It has been so much fun. Congratulations on a year well done!
    I enjoyed viewing your posts again. They are so full of beauty and many ideas to tuck away. I love that we can pin for reference.
