  1. I have always loved Earl Grey and Lapsang Souchoung, but had never tried them together, until I met Sarah Ferguson, The Duchess of York in Los Angeles. We were chatting about tea and I asked her favorite and she told me “Earl Grey and Lapsang Souchoung, equal mix.” She wrote it down for me and it has been my favorite ever since!!

  2. I love Fortnam & Mason’s , Royal Blend.Can be found at William Sonoma or ordered from the store Fortnam& Mason in London England.It is said to be Queen Elizabeth’s favorite.I found it on a trip to London by doing High tea at Fortnam & Mason’s….an experience I will never forget!

  3. I love tea and drink copious amounts of it daily…black tea, earl grey, ginger mint…depens on what I’ m having with it, so it’s a little like wine pairing. I always get ideas for my Valentine’s day from Tea Time.

  4. I love tea. Different ones for different times.

    In the hustle and bustle of our lives, it’s wonderful to sit with a good book and a cup of tea.

    Even MORE fun is “tea time” with my two granddaughters, Amelia and Evelyn (ages 7 and 9). They each choose one of Yaya’s hats, scarfs and gloves, set the table complete with cloth napkins and scones, and then we just sit, visit and enjoy our time together!

  5. True confession… not a great tea drinker, but when I do partake, I like Earl Grey and home made infusions of anise seed and cinnamon. I also buy a good spearmint tea… LOVE TEA TIME MAGAZINE; the photography is awesome!.

  6. Oh, I just love Tea Time magazine…was a charter subscriber and look forward to reading through each issue. I enjoy just regular black tea…boring, I know…but I just love it…with milk and sugar, of course. ; )

    1. My favorite, too! My mother introduced me to it almost 60 years ago. That was our favorite time together, and I miss those moments. I just bought myself a single place setting of Spode Indian Tree china, and on Saturday I’ll be having my own little Valentine’s Day treat in her memory.

  7. I love tea,Tea Time magazine and all the pretty china that goes along with it. Can anyone tell me the pattern of the plate that the above chocolate heart dessert is on? It’s so pretty. Thank you.

  8. I love Bigelow oolong tea. Very inexpensive but I love it. It is no longer available but I bought enough so I can live to be 100.

  9. Lavender and earl grey from Revolution Tea, very calming. I love Tea Time Magazine, just got the newest and poured through it the same day. Thanks!
