I had the best time last week buying presents for two special friends of mine. I decided to build the gifts around one present: hand blended Tea from Bellingham that sells at our Farmer’s Market (Sip-T’s site here) With that tea as an anchor theme, I headed over to Etsy to keep with the theme. It wasn’t hard to find a billion tea-inspired gifts there. The most difficult part was picking out the perfect teatime assortment.

LOL! =) Glad that you like the mug. Amber helped me pick your teal one (did
you notice the theme with the teal cards?) =) and when it came in, I was
like “I should have gotten one of those for me!” =))) Thank YOU for all of
your help and support in 2010. You are awesome!

Little did I know I would be able to see this mug IN PERSON! Thank you SO MUCH for my wonderful care package of tea-related goodies. I feel so special – you really made my day A-M!!!
The tea is from Sip-T: http://sip-t.com/ I’ll add the URL to my post (good idea!).
I worked in a tea shop in College and have loved tea ever since. =)
I only wish I had picked up one of those travel mugs myself! =)
I agree; winter seems to be prime time for ‘warm drink’ type of soaps (Mulled Cider, Spicy Wine fragrances, Tea fragrances). Isn’t it interesting how, as a nation, we literally move fragrance trends with the season? It always fascinates me. =)
Now that I’m almost in my 3rd Trimester, I’m allowing myself Green Tea again (I was 100% caffeine free for the rest of the time) and am doing the Tea of the Month club from Adagio Teas. I LOVE having different teas arrive every month. It’s not quite a wine tasting but it’s close =)
Thank you SO much for your note. It is very appreciated =))) And, I’m glad you’ve found value in the blog. It’s sort of a mishmash of personal life stuff, business musings and then projects and news from BB. I really enjoy having it as an outlet and am just thankful to have readers =)
I love the mug. There is nothing better than tea in a ceramic mug. It’s like a big hug. 😉
Totally OT, but I just wanted to say that I love this blog. I’m in the process of starting a (very) small soaping business and reading your blog (yes, the WHOLE thing – I’m in April 2009 now) is part of my homework. Thanks so much for the work you do!

Earl Grey is my favorite kind of tea! That lip balm looks so yummy!

It must be that time of the year – my tea soaps are flying off the shelves. =)
Oh my goodness…..i’ve been thinkin’ about tea so much lately.
must be the cooolllldddd weather!
I am intrigued by the tea at market. Can you send links to their web address?
If I ever open a store, (which I am thinking seriously about), tea will be featured there! Especially exotic blends from far away exotic lands….
