GOOD OLD TEA & CROCHET

Just popping in to say hello and yes I am still alive....frozen but still pottling on.
Tea & very simple, no thought required crochet has been my friend of late along with that most refreshing afternoon cup of ceylon. Pale and refreshing, none of that nasty tannin laden, stewed to oblivion builders tea here...its a crime to treat tea leaves in that way a crime...



What tea do you like to drink with hook in hand...xox

  4. Ceylon too - though I tend to drink it a bit stronger. Knitting needles here - have just put down crochet hook (and pink yarn) trying to learn and on verge of flinging it out the window. Lovely colours in your photo!

  5. I go through phases with tea. Current favourite is teapigs' popcorn tea- it's as savoury as tea can be, and therefore perfectly balances out a biscuit overindulgence :p xxx

  11. I've been drinking Pluckley tea, from a company based in Kent. I get a real tea fatigue if I drink the same tea for too long and have a swap around.

  13. I've got a sore throat at the moment so am making tea pots (wearing tea cosies of course) of honey and lemon juice with a little freshly grated ginger, but normally an Earl Grey tea girl (drunk Lovejoy style with milk not lemon!!)

  14. Hi there! I do love a bit of ceylon myself, but lately I've needed the oomph of Yorkshire tea. Have a two year old running me ragged ;)

  15. I love Spiced Imperial tea too and Taylors of Harrogate Christmas blend. The tea I have been drinking of late though is a blend called Wendy Tea from a company in Portsmouth. Lavender, Bergamot and all sorts of aromatic flavors. Great for a mid-afternoon pick me up when knitting. Sorry I can't crochet. Best wishes from Slizzy Greensleeves.

  17. Tea and crochet is a wonderful cobination, i think. I prefer earl grey. No milk! :-)

  18. What a lovely combination of colours in your photo. I have just discovered Lapsang Souchong and am wondering why I hadn't tried it sooner! Sadly I don't crochet, but I am just learning to knit, so it seems fitting to be trying out a new skill and a new tea at the same time!

  19. Fresh tasting tea - of any type - is what keeps me going through the day. That and the crochet hook and yarn of course. Especially when sitting listening to the howling wind and lashing rain. Ah well, roll on Spring and sitting in the sun with tea and hooky!
