All things nice... said...

I like lots of tea in a big mug as a tea cup is too small for me, I like it weak with lots of milk. Whenever I go on holidays abroad I really miss my tea as they seem to only drink flavoured tea with very little milk :( Then I seem to get withdrawl symptons and start longing for my proper mug of tea, so I have decided next time I go abroad I'm bringing my own teabags :) If I spent a full day at home in the cold weather I would go through about 10 mugs a day but as my family say it's basically milk as I like it weak with lots of milk :)

All things nice...

Julie Harward said...

I don't drink tea or coffee but I like lemon with my pepsi or hot chocolate with marshmallows...does that count? :D

Martha said...

How cute is that teaspoon!!! I love my tea with lemon and coffee with cream...and of course friends are the best to drink it with:) Enjoy!

Maria said...

That spoon is soooo cute Koralee! Did Jacqueline make the spoon topper herself?
I stopped at her shop... very, very sweet things there! I'll have to keep it in mind for my nieces :D
Hope your Sunday evening is calm and sweet (just like tea :)
I love honey in my tea...
I also love milk frothy teas (chai especially)
I'm now just LOVING the Christmas teas from Stash! so soothing~

When I was a young girl, I'd have tea every afternoon with my Nonna (g'ma in Italian). We would have tea with sugar and milk and munch on crackers or her homemade cookies :)
A sweet memory ~
Hope our Monday morning comes gently ~~~

Jacqueline said...

Oh Koralee,
That teaspoon is brilliant.
In England, tea is traditionally taken with milk, and sugar if you wish.
I take mine like that with one teaspoon of sugar but, I also love lemon tea with honey.XXXX

becky said...

How adorable is that, to cute.I will visit her right now.

I take my tea with milk also.Sometimes I sprinkle a few drops of brown sugar in mine.If im feeling for something a bit sweet.

Have a great new week!

Libbie said...

Do I have to admit that I do very high maintenece coffee :) Grande, nonfat, decaf, no whip mocha & sometimes with raspberry :) I do apologize when I order & I always tip! :) But no caffiene becaue I am nursing & nonfat, no whip for my thighs :)

Draffin Bears said...

Rhondi said...

There is nothing more soothing than a hot cup of tea. I take mine with milk and made in a teapot. No teabag in a mug please :) The little teaspoon withthe cake on it is too cute!
Hugs, Rhondi

Dragonfly said...

So so cute!!! I like my coffee with friends too - its definately sweeter :-)

Two Shades of Pink said...

I'm a fanatic about both coffee and tea! Coffee is daily with C & S but tea needs to be savored for me...steeped in a tea pot, served in a tea cup and usually with a friend. C & S in my tea is a treat, honey and lemon if I am sick, and plain if it has peppermint! I can be versatile!

theUngourmet said...

Your little tsp is oh so darling! :) I like my tea with milk and honey.

Sophia said...

I totally love tea, and not just the typical "flavored" teas. I love the really great black teas, such as Scottish Blend (which is getting more difficult to find), Lyons, Welch...nummy. Some day, I'd like to line my top cabinets in my kitchen with lovely little colored teapots! :)

Btw, I love my tea with a pinch of sugar and a tad bit of milk! :)

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Oh how cute! I love to take tea or coffee with friends, or sometimes quietly on my own. The coffee is black, the tea has a little sweetner, sugar or honey.

Brenda @Cozy Little House said...

I would most assuredly be glad to take mine with friendship! I take my morning coffee with 2 Splenda packets and some half and half. Yum! (I visited your birthday friend.)

Pinecone Camp said...

Coffee or tea with friends is the best. Coffee is usually my hot drink of choice....with cream only!

The Tablescaper said...

Love and hugs,

FrenchBlue said...

I take my tea with a splash of lavender and usually alone in the quiet... however, when shared with a friend it adds the sweetness like honey~~

Jacqueline said...

Dear Koralee, you are such a sweet sweet friend! I hope someday i could visit you at your cozy house and have tea with you! :) I love coffee but now i am finding myself loving tea as much! I guess it has alot to do with hanging out with you and other lovely blog friends that loves tea....such a wonderful wonderful influence. :) Thank you so much for such kind words and shout out for my little birthday! Made me soo happy. :)

Helen McGinn said...

So pretty!

I tend to sit on the sofa rocking back and forth, back and forth until a cup of tea, wee drop of milk is put into my hand. Once it is drunk, I'm a happy, capable Helen once again.

My kids have learned to make tea...oh yes, even at 8; it is a well honed skill and a necessity in Scotland to be able to make your mum a wee cuppa in times of need. ;O)

I'll be having an afternoon tea next week, I'll take photos just for you. :O)

A Perfect Peach said...

Beach Vintage said...

Dearest Koralee, I dont drink tea my dear. But coffee is always white with one. I have to say out of all the blogs it was yours I missed most over Christmas/ New Year. So glad to be back here seeing all your wonderful posts. Hope you had a wonderful New Year. Look forward to seeing more of your blog in 2010.

cabin + cub said...

honey and milk please, and with friends it just makes things all the sweeter. ;)

Feelings said...

Wonderful gift, Koralee! You really diserve it!

I like to have my tea, with a bit of sugar and a piece of lemon...mmmm, yummie!

Wonderful post, as usual!

And Koralee, come for a visit, and please hurry...

Love/
Luiza

Teresa said...

Koralee My Friend...
This blog...
is addictive!
I could stay over here in your sweet dreamy world FOREVER!!!! and ever!!
Well now...let's talk tea!
Mostly...when I sip tea...it is spiced tea!
So no cream...but I have been known to splash a couple of RED HOTS down in it!
Makes it oh so magical!
When we go to England...I take my tea with Splenda...(usually carry some with me) and a bit of milk or cream!
Now...my coffee...well it's a dessert within itself.
French Vanilla coffee...
sweetened with Splenda...
French Vanilla (no sugar) Cream
& a big squirt/swirl of Whipped Cream (not the real fattening kind)
And then on a really happy day!
I sprinkle some vanilla sugar on the top of whipped cream!
When ever I SQUIRT the whipcream...
Doogan always comes and sits...
or raises his head...
ready for his daily SQUIRT!
when I had kitties...back in Alabama...I would hollar "want a squirt?..." they would all coming RUNNNNNNNING and pop up on the washing machine where I fed them and each get their own little squirt of whipped cream!
Oh I miss my kitties!
XXOOXX

trishie koh said...

oo, i like my tea with milk, sugar and definitely friends!

Nezzy said...

I like my tea steaming served up with a good friend. Lovely post as usual!

Have a greatly blessed day!

Cate said...

Okay, I'm british so tea is a way of life starting first thing with a big cuppa'splosh' as we fondly call it. In our house it is always brewed for a minimum of 3 minutes using the finest tea and a drop of milk. Unfortunately, I have cut out my 1 teaspoon of sugar in an effort to lose weight.
We always have tea to chat over, tea to comfort us when we are down, tea to get over a shock, tea to celebrate, tea to relieve stress and just cos we want a break!Any old excuse to put the kettle on really..I have one right now actually, but really wish I could put that sugar in it! Ha ha

RIZZI said...

I DRINK MY TEA WITH MILK, I LIKE SOME OF THE HERB TEAS, AND I LOVE MY COFFEE WITH HALF AND HALF. A FEW COOKIES WOULD GO NICE TOO.

Amanda said...

Coffee for me please Koralee, a cappucino or a longish short black, depending on the time of day, and with friends if possible!

ELK said...

tea would be black...coffee a splash of skim milk..your blog is what i love with a cup!

Jen Chandler said...

Adorable tea spoon! I take my tea with a dash of sugar (and cream if it's an Earl Grey). As for coffee, it's usually black unless a super delicious flavored variety and then I add some sweetness :) And a heap of friends is great too!
