OK, so I’m really behind on my posts. I’ve got a few posts hanging out in the draft section of my dashboard, just waiting for me to put the finishing touches on them. But, I had to put this post ahead of the rest, because … IT’S TEA TIME!
I don’t know if the great minds at Knoshy actually read my blog. I hope they do. But, I’ve been mentioning in several box announcement posts about my desire for a tea time box. They’ve finally given me my heart’s desire! The theme for this month’s box is Tea Time!
So, the first thing that needs to be in a Tea Time box is tea, right? And what better company to select a tea from for this box than Steven Smith Teamaker? There’s a full box of Lord Bergamot (one of my very favorite Earl Grey teas – in the top three – of all time!) and even though they’re sachets – tea tastes better when it’s loose leaf! – I won’t ding ’em for going with the sachets. I understand … I get it … not a lot of people know what to do with loose leaf tea.
They also included a package of Amsterdam Wafel cookies from Rip Van Wafels. I’ve had these before, and they’re totally yum. I’m glad they’re in this box. There is also a package of my favorite shortbread cookie baker – Lark Fine Foods! These are Sweet and Savory Olive cookies. Interesting.
Finally, there’s a jar of You’re My Boy BLUE-berry Bourbon Jam from the Jam Stand. This sounds like a seriously yummy jam … it would be spectacular on scones. I might have to make some scones soon to try it out.
I’m thrilled with this month’s box! Thank you, Knoshy!
