Tea Anyone???? What about a Swap???

Today in a class we put the finishing touches on these little beauty's (tea cozy-s made using Noro Iro) and it got me thinking....
How do you like your tea???
Do you drink it brewed in a pot or are you tea bag kinda girl???
Do you use loose leaf or bags in your pot???? Do you play around with flavours or are you always drawn back to the classic 'black tea'???
Do you go to the trouble of brewing up a whole 4-6 (or even 8) cup pot just for yourself or do you like using a little 1-2 cup pot????
Do you drink your tea black or is white more to your liking??? Honey, sugar or simply nothing at all, you're sweet enough as it is??? LOL!!!
I love a classic tea brewed in a pot with loose leaves, white with 1 and I'm won!!! But, if a pot's not handy Tetley tea bags make a great substitute brewed in my favourite mug...
With all of this tea talk I'm now off to brew a little pot up for myself and with that in mind was wondering if anybody would be interested in a Xmas Washcloth Swap. The theme would obviously be Xmas for the washer and 'Tea' for little gift to accompany....
Leave a comment if you'd be interested and I'll forward the details via email.

  3. Hi Jodie,
    I would love to join this swap. I'm a herb tea girl. I like to pick them fresh and make up different concoctions in a pot but I do use tea bags and dried leaves as well.

  6. Hey Jodie, I drink tea all day, Tetley teabags usually as my teapot broke and I haven't replaced it yet. A girl's got to find a teapot that's just right *grin*. Red Bush tea is a favourite too. Coffee is a definate to wake me up though *lol*.
    Please count me in for the Xmas swap!

  7. A Christmas swap, awesome idea! I love green tea - green tea and lemon or jasmine, or mint.

  8. sounds fun! I love knitting washcloths and tea is my absolute hands down favourite drink. I'm a boring teabag girl - twinings orange pekoe or yorkshire gold label, weak, with LOTS of milk and absolutely no sugar. :-)

  9. Adore tea! Mainly Irish or English breakfast and sencha green-- straight up with no milk or sugar. Loose leaf tea in a pot for sure but keep a couple of teabags in my purse for tea emergencies when I am out and about.

  11. A swap sounds great to me!! Count me in :-)

    I like my tea weak black with no sugar, preferably brewed in a pot from leaves. My faves at the moment are keemun (similar to Prince of Wales), French Earl Grey (but none of the traditional earl grey, thank you, bleurgh), and Gen Mai Cha Sencha. Mmmmmmmmm! Though straight black is always acceptable!!

  13. i am more of a coffee girl myself, however of a night time, when i feel like something to warm me up and do not want to be bouncing off the walls all night with caffeine, i love a cup of peppermint or mint tea, just from a bag i'm afraid.
    i would love to participate in your xmas washer/tea swap :)

  15. Count me in on the next fabby swap. The last one was fun. Although coffee is neccessary for funtioning, I love tea...the pot...the wait...the flavour. Me, I love a 'shearer's cuppa', black, no sugar. Or chai, or oolong, or green tea...I could go on forever!Kx.
