Oooo your tea this morning sounds so delicious. I have never heard of that kind but you can bet I am going to check it out! I like the 'make a tea dream pillow'. I don't know what that would be or look like but it would be fun to create and see what happens. Happy T on T.
Peace~

So many great ideas. I was lucky enough to have lunch at a tea house a couple of weeks ago. A wonderful experience.

What a pretty cup of tea that looks and I love your list of things to do... I can imagine what my teapot would turn out like... so maybe give that one a miss but the tea dream pillow? Now I will have to go and Google that to see what it is... thank you for tea!!

I would LOVE to have lunch or even afternoon tea at a tea house. It would be so much fun. You (and your book) have lots of wonderful ideas to go with the organic Bangkok tea. It sounds delicious.

What an interesting book that sounds to be and great ideas. I've actually been to India and Sri Lanka and enjoyed much tea. I haven't tried tea dyeing anything yet but would like to do that. Japanese food is a favorite around here so much Japanese green tea is had when we go for sushi. For a friend's birthday, we went to a local hotel for high tea. :) Fun! Hope you are having a great day. Tammyf
