First Tea of March

Hi Friends!

Wow, March already! I always think of March as the Green Month. It’s weird that Easter is this month too. I know it happens occasionally, but it still seems odd to me.

I thought I would share a fun 4 piece green and white teacup set with you today. No fancy tea setup, just the cup.

IMG_5553I thought the colors were perfect to share for this months first tea.

Such a fun and pretty design pattern.

It comes with it’s own diffuser.

Here is all four of the pieces to this one teacup set. There is no makers mark on the bottom.

I thought I would have a cup of loose leaf sassafras tea. This tea has a wonderfully sweet flavor to it.

Oh, look! Action shot! LOL

I put the lid on to let it steep.

I enjoyed my cup of Sassafras tea while reading magazines. Don’t those two things just naturally go together?

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed your visit!

  3. Diann that is such a pretty cup! Love that it has it's own diffuser. Very March for sure. I am going to spend Easter with my daughter's family and watch Tiger hunt eggs, his first time! So excited!

  5. Hello there Diann,

    The soothing warmth, the refreshing aroma of a cup of Sassafras tea along with enjoying reading favorite magazines, is quite simply "the bees knees". Along with the shared hospitality of blog friendship, such a teatime is always enjoyable. Thanks for sharing this delightful moment of respite with all of us Diann.

    Cheers, blessings and hugs from Wanda Lee

  6. This is a really sweet teacup set. I've not seen one like it before. I enjoy tea while blogging and reading, often 2 or 3 cups a day. Pamela

  7. I've purchased one of these cups with the built in strainer as gift but have not used one before. Very nice and something you could use for travelling.

  13. Diann,
    Love the tea cup!! Perfect for the Holiday.... I do hate it when St. Patrick's Day is so close to Easter, don't you? I would rather Easter always in April...

    Thanks so much for always stopping by..

    Hugs,
    Debbie

  14. Oh I haven't thought about sassafras tea since I was a kid, my Grandma Baker use to dig up sassafras tea roots somewhere on their land and she made sassafras tea, I loved it as a kid back in the 1950's . I can just barley remember it

    I really like your tea set with the diffuser , I really need a cup like your because I love loose tea
