Tea Time – Winter Edition 2017

The holidays have come and gone, but I’m still enjoying the holiday teas that are currently in rotation.  I also have a new favorite tea that I received as a gift for the holidays – Argo Earl Grey Creme.  Not as strong as your traditional earl gray tea, with a hint of creme flavor that really balances the tea.  Perfect for an afternoon curled up with a good book!  (and it should be noted that I drank an entire pot of tea one evening while reading over the holidays!)  😀 I’ve underlined the teas that are currently in rotation.

Winter Poems

I thought I would round up of some of my favorite poems for the winter season.  Is it just me, or do you conjure up images of Robert Frost and some of his poems, like Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, when thinking about winter poems?

  • Snow-flakes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
  • Snow flakes by Emily Dickinson
  • Winter Stars by Sara Teasdale
  • A Winter Morning by Ted Kooser
  • Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost
  • Silver Filigree by Elinor Wylie
