Postal Deliveries

The postman has been delivering some fun tea items to my door that I want to share with you.  

I was recently contacted by a sales rep from Adagio Teas asking if I'd like to try this year's Advent Tea Calendar.  I said, "Sure!"  I can't write any reviews yet because I won't begin sampling them until December 1st, but I've never had a tea from Adagio that I didn't like. The Advent Calendar arrived a couple of days ago.

Twenty-four days of delicious gourmet teas - a new variety each day to help make the Christmas Season merry, bright, and filled with good tea! It sells for $29 and has great customer reviews.  To read more about it click here.  What a fun gift for yourself and/or another tea lover - not that I'm trying to rush the season!  ;-)


I also recently ordered the Downton Abbey tea set from World Market, and it arrived this week too.  It's not fine china, but it's fun to have for a Downton Abbey tea party.  I love Lord Grantham's quote on the side of the teapot, "Golly gumdrops, what a turn up!" as well as the crown finial on the teapot and sugar bowl lids.  I think they're still in stock.  The teapot sells for $19.99 as well as the sugar and creamer.  I got mine for 30% off during their Friends and Family promotion.


Republic of Tea has the rights to Downton Abbey teas.  They created three new blends to coincide with the Downton Abbey movie:  Lord & Lady Grantham's Tea - a black tea with royal spices;  The Bates' Tea - premium plum pudding black tea; and Violet & Mary's Tea - caffeine-free ginger mint herbal tea.   They are individually priced at $12.50 in a Downton Abbey tin of 36 tea bags, or you can get them in a combo package.  World Market sells them, but I ordered mine directly from Republic of Tea.


And last, but certainly not least, a surprise package arrived from Texas from a friend and follower of my blog containing a tea towel with the picture of the angels that adorn the exterior of Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth, Texas.  Thanks so much, Frieda!
