Antique Postcard For December 21st, Winter Solstice, Christmas Teas Part 1

Good moring on the shortest day and longest night of the year...
winter solstice
December 21st

And although no snow today, we are extremely cold for us...it was 26 degrees when I got up this morning...that's cold for us!

Antique Christmas postcard for today
December 21st

And my annual round up of favorite seasonal teas starts today....

These are the ones I have had in the past or re-buy, and the additions of some new ones as I find them
Harney & Sons Holiday Tea...always warm and tasty
Republic Of Tea Comfort And Joy...lots of fruit and cinnamon
Harney & Sons White Christmas Tea...a bit lighter and not quite so spicy, just delicious
More tomorrow...
Hope your week is full of festive tea, friends and enjoyment of the shortest day...looking forward to a longer one tomorrow...


  1. Beautiful cards and lovely mug!Your teas look great although I know nothing about tea...Have a lovely day,dear Ruth!

  2. Happy First Day of Winter, Ruth! I enjoyed seeing your stash of seasonal teas. I've had the Harney & Sons teas, but the Republic of Teas are, sadly, not available in my neck of the woods.


Thanks for visiting and we love to hear from you! We read every comment. If my husband's health permits, I love to visit andreply. Have a wonderful day and a cuppa tea always at hand! :)
