tea, tea sans jam and bread

Received a gorgeous Christmas gift from one of my advisees today~even the packaging is elegant.  

Lovely tea cups with a greeting from the Rooster (my Chinese zodiac symbol!) 

And I just happen to have a new bag of winter tea to try.  Here's to the first snow fall of the winter!


  1. One of the lovelier side effects of having many Chinese students in American schools is many host families and friends are receiving ALL the tea paraphernalia!! We have little blocks of compressed black tea - it's a wonderful dye as well as being a good tea to drink.

    1. Yes, tea is always a lovely gift. And I've always been envious of how even The simplest packaging is elegant.
