Here's to a beautiful Teas-day.

I love Teasday. It's the day I get to really indulge my love of tea by stopping by the tea shop, browsing around and finding beautiful things to showcase for you. Whether you live nearby or far away, I think you will enjoy seeing all the lovely gift items and tea accessories the Ivy Leaf offers its customers. By way of our etsy shop, you can purchase your tea items directly from this blog. I have chosen some exquisite pieces to add to the etsy store this week. The first is a gorgeous silverplate tea strainer with the most amazing detail. It comes in a beautiful velvet giftbox. The second is a silverplated sugar and creamer set with a silverplated tray. It is unbelievably rich in detail and is the utmost in tea finery.

On to teasday trivia. Last week's trivia question was answered correctly. It was the Camellia Sinensis. By random number, the winner is Christine! Way to go girl! Thank you for being a regular player. We appreciate each and every one of our visitors. You will be getting a sample of Heaven's Perfect Peach!

We have been talking about cultivation and types of tea, so in that same note, next week's trivia question is:

There are two terms for plucking tea leaves. What are the two names for plucking two leaves and a leaf bud and three or more leaves and a leaf bud?

Did you know that the Ivy Leaf's signature blend is London Lady? It has a good flowery and malt flavor with hints of strawberry and lemon.

Enjoy your favorite tea today and really savor the moment. Turn on some soothing music and just spend a little time for yourself today. It's so nice to recharge and refresh your spirit.

With a warm heart,
