Tea... and A "Tea Bear"




For Christmas this year, a friend gave me a little tiny honey bear filled with 2 ounces of honey. I love it and it is just the perfect size to use with tea. :)


The cup is a large one made by Noritake.

Isn't this little bear adorable? :)

 This little tray is the perfect size for a mini tea... for one. :)  It was the only thing I found at an Antique Mall Thrift store a couple of years ago... and it was only 25c, so I bought it. I have been surprised how much I have enjoyed using this. It is plastic, but it is fun and it was great to use for my tea today.

I am glad God blesses us... even with simple little things like tea... and a fun tea bear. Thank you for visiting. I hope you have a wonderful week.  :)

  2. I don't take sweetener in either my tea or coffee but if I did, I would use honey instead of sugar. The little bear is really cute and your Noritake teacup and saucer is lovely. Thank you for joining me for tea.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

    1. I don't either, usually... only at special times.... or with very strong unpleasant herbal teas that need some sweetning. :) It was so nice to have tea w/ you today.

  12. Tea and honey, what a delicious sweet treat! :) A young lady from my church got married over a year ago and she had similar honey bears on the tables as gifts for the guests - they are just too cute!

  14. I have a little tiny honey bear similar to yours. I admit I bought it cause it was so CUTE, not necessarily for the honey. LOL I like honey on my biscuits!
