Tea with The Duke {of Earl Grey}

I must admit,
I'm now in love with Earl Grey
You can catch me having tea with Earl Grey every day.
It's all because of Koralee !

You see,
I've enjoyed tea with Earl Grey for years,
but Koralee explained how wonderful Earl is in a "London Fog."
Now, I can't wait to enjoy a few moments
in a
London Fog.

{I mix a tiny amount of pure vanilla right in the frothy milk before pouring on top of the tea}

Thank you, Koralee for introducing us.
It's the little things in life that keep us smiling, isn't it?

After work today, I'm meeting up with Chris.
We'll go to the P.O. and drop off what we owe Caesar
then spend some time sitting outside at Starbucks.
They're offering FREE COFFEE just because.
That's nice of them, since half of us will be walking around with empty pockets ;o)
I just love my coffees and teas!

~ Thank God for the little things ~ 

I hope your day is filled with lovely little moments of JOY.

I'm usually not an Earl Grey drinker (I like green teas) But that looked very tasty! I hope that you enjoy your freebie today, hey it's the least that they can do!
Love Di ♥

Special Tea and Coffee do make days so much better...they are among my favorite things! You are too Maria...thanks so much for your sweet comment!

Barb said...

I'm resisting a frother, Maria, but your posts showing the ultimate in coffee/tea drinks is testing my willpower! Yummy!

Rosie said...

Good Day Miss Maria...
Oh, I too enjoy "the earl"...have never seen him quite so very F*L*U*F*F*Y..he looks rather sweet! I do believe I may have to have a wee chat with him tonight {with my feet up, and favorite magazine by my side}
Such a Beautiful and inspiring post on Rosie...

Awww yes! It is the little things! What's that saying, "Life is what we live while we are waiting on something to happen." or something like that.

Hello, Maria,
Your tea looks delicious! I like tea, but I really love coffee, I must admit. Enjoy your time at Starbucks, and yes, my pockets are empty!! I love that quote so much. It is one of my absolute favorites. I hope you have a terrific Friday and lovely weekend, my friend! Love and blessings, Vicki

Love Earl Grey tea but am unsure about frothy milk in it.

Oh my...Maria, it was not good. I was enjoying my morning "chit~chat", when all of a sudden my screen darkened, and windows 7 gave me an "update". I lost everything I had accumulated, which wasn't a lot, being that my baby is still "shiny and new"... my "little photo collection" that I use for my posts, and a few other goodies... still quite disturbing ...thanks so much for your concern, I do so enjoy your visits ...have lovely evening ...Rosie

Mary said...

Looks good! I used to love Earl Grey and then got tired of it for some reason. But any cup of tea is a good way to start the day!

Roo said...

ok! after reading this i am NEEDING a cuppa of tea. mmm. looks so very yummy!

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Maria~I've just purchased a frother and am thrilled with it. If you can imagine...I've been so distracted with using it for coffee, it didn't occur to me to froth cream for my teas, which I drink more of. When I'm feeling indulgent for sugar in my tea...I like a little honey or now my desired sweetness, Agave nectar, most times it's Stevia.
My tea addiction is China Republic Ginger Peach and Chinese loose leaf Jasmine.
I hope to see you soon, your company would be nice.

Sweet wishes,
