Tea and Favorite Things

I'm joining Kimmie again for Tea on Tuesday with a few of my favorite things.
Twinings Organic African Honeybush & Lemon tea which I drink from a Starbucks coffee mug.  The teabag is good for a couple of cups.
The easiest, yummiest sugar cookies served with a lemon glaze (powdered sugar and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice).
The tutorial for this little crocheted gift bag.  When I can't decide what to do, I just whip up a few of these.  Makes gift-giving so much nicer.
If you prefer chocolate, just mix together a pat of butter with powdered sugar and cocoa powder.
Any way you serve them up, these cookies are great.
Sending sweet wishes your way for a wonderful day!

Hi Tammy! Always nice to relax a bit! I'm looking forward for such days!I've tried twinings in the past, but the truth is I prefer the mountain tea (or sideritis), which is quite popular in Greece! I find it lighter towards the black tea!
Very interesting bag-tutorial! Maybe I'll try it some day!
Have a nice day,
Angeliki

All is always so very nice with you. :-) Simple cookies are the only way to go...and the two best: lemon and chocolate!

Your tea sounds yummy! I love the african teas that aren't really tea - no caffeine - and loaded with good for you stuff like antioxidants. Which, I'm sure your cookies are like that too (wink)

sweet little gift bag - I love the color combo!

I go through spells of enjoying hot tea. I just found some Chai Latte that is very good. Wishing you a beautiful day.

Oh it looks so yummy! But I can not eat sugar so I can not partake at all. Not even that tea, bummer. I am into white tea right now and loving it. Hugs to you,

I knew I'd be late getting here, but it's already tomorrow in your world.

Those cookies look divine and that organic tea sounds wonderful. I am a caffeine hog, though, and I suspect this is decaf. I want one of the cookies, though (grin).

Well Happy Tea Time to you girlfriend.
I had to close my eyes through most of this post because I started the Eat to Live vegan diet Monday and boy do I miss cookies. hahaha
Hope all is well and your having a great week.
I am having a giveaway from Novica and I just realized it ends tonight at midnight central standard time so I am not sure what time it there for you now. For some crazy reason I can not keep up with the dates of this week.
Love
Maggie

Mmmmm... Those look so yummy! I'm sorry you have been having so much wind with all that dust and sand. I hope you have beautiful clear blue skies this weekend and that sweet Jingles gets to play outside!

I have to get some Twinings. So many teas I get are so weak I can't even taste them. I remember the days when I could get 2 cups from one bag but some these today you're lucky if you get 1 decent cup.
Oh, a new cookie recipe! YES! I love cookies. They're my favorite dessert to have on hand and that one looks so tasty with the lemon and then how you made a chocolate one too. I think I need to make those A.S.A.P.! thanks as always and have a great weekend!
