I always say I have THE best friends and if my post today does not convince you of that than I don’t know what will. Teapot Tuesday today will showcase two new to me teas that friends have gifted me.
First up is a really great tea from Greece that my new friend Elaine passed along to me. Her daughter brought her back some from a recent trip and she was sweet enough to share with me. The tea is light and I think I steeped it just the perfect amount of time because it was not bitter at all which sometimes happens when brewing unknown teas. This tea has a really nice flavor and I loved it. Thanks, Elaine!
The other tea that I received recently was a really neat black tea blend from Par Avion Tea. My friend Jeni from Jeni Eats sent me a tin of their special Midnight Blend which is a black tea with gold sugar balls. It is amazing and when you brew it the cup kind of glows and shimmers with the gold sugar balls. It is such a fun tea and the great thing about this tea company is that they give back. Written on the side of the tin I discovered that with every tin purchased one day of education is provided for a child in need. You know that is a winner in my book! Thanks, Jeni, for introducing me to a new tea company. More information is available on their website here.
These are two really wonderful teas to add to my collection and I just had to share them with my Teapot Tuesday readers. Thanks for stopping by today to share my love of tea. Tell me in the comments what your favorite tea is if you are a tea drinker. Comment for a Cause for AAUW Scholarships for Young Women.

Cook, Cook, drink your tea,
But save some in the pot for me.
We’ll watch the tea leaves in our cup
When our drink is all sipped up.
Happiness or fortune great,
What will our future be?
