Lesa Loves... Hawaiian Tea Time!

Nothing better than a cuppa to make a winter day more cozy. And to make it cheerful as well? 

A happy yellow cup. 

And tea from Hawaii. 

Isn't the packaging beautiful?  Takes me away to one of my favorite places on earth. Blue ocean, fragrant flowers, fresh fruit, warm sun, balmy breezes... mmm... okay, okay, I'm back.

My sweet grown up baby brother sent this tea to me.

Love. Love. Love. 

The gift and the giver.

Do certain colors brighten up your dreary winter days?  What happy warm place do you drift off to on a cold winter day? Please share.

  7. Since it is a cold rainy day in Central TX ... yellow is my favorite color ... and I love tea (as well as coffee) ... this gives me a boost of sunshine for a Monday. How comforting and cozy!!

    Re: the buttons - Google/Blogger has just overhauled blog URL's to include location e.g. Australia has been first hit! There are many complaints on the Google website - including mine - about not being forewarned and the impact!

  10. Bet it is good, pineapple strawberry..

    Visiting for Blue Monday!

    Here's my share- hope you can stop by:)

  11. Right after leaving my husband, I chose to add the colour yellow to my palate because it is so bright and cheery.

  12. I always like the idea of fruity teas but I never seem to like the tea itself. I'm more of a black/red/green/chai sort of girl myself :).

    My photography is available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography on etsy and Society6 and bring home something beautiful today!

  13. Yellow mug, yellow tea box, perfect for MYM:)

    Visiting for MYM! Here's my share- hope you can stop by:)

  14. Glad to see another herbal tea lover out there! Cheers!


    Hester’s letter, scarlet “A,”
    Gave the gossips much to say,
    But their rudeness she forbore,
    For she knew she was no whore.
