A Raw Elegance Bellocq

Peonies in your cup anyone?

There is something about raw organic tea that does magical things to my mind.

It draws me in.  It continues to educate me.   

There is so much to learn about the steeping and the blends.
Green. Black. White. Herbal. Oolongs. Pu-erhs.

 Tea is a perfect opportunity for your body to
 commune with our beautiful earth. 
A ceremony one can do alone.

Hand mixed with ingredients like juniper berries
The tea itself is a source of rare beauty.

All senses are filled when you walk into a tea atelier.
  It is almost like a chemistry lab but one that has walls soaked with old English gardens in full bloom filled with wild flowers, roses, leaves, trees

Can anything be more beautiful than this?
You must visit
 Bellocq Tea Atelier.

Just wanted to say Hello to all my darling ones~

  3. Beautiful images,i especially love the rose petals on the little spoon,rose tea is divine as is your music,
    Love to you x

  4. Tea means bliss doesn't it? Have a lovely day...

  5. I believe tea is one of the great secrets of Life! Sorts me out when nothing else can.
    Beautiful post... do you get those lovely falling snowflakes?

  6. I absolutley love tea - I could drink it all day long.

    I drink all sorts of tea.

    Green tea tastes best in an authentic asian tea pot with the little sipping cups - I love that

    such a gorgeous post thank you - I normally click straight off blogs that have music going in them but today I stayed for a long while :)

    have a lovely day


  7. Hello to you, darling one Janet !
    What a beautiful website, and I shall delve into it properly later.
    Being English myself, tea has been part of my life since I was a baby ( which is too many years ago that I care to remember !!)At the moment, I am drinking Aveda Liquorice and peppermint tea which is delicious but, the Bellocq is worth having for the packaging alone !! Many thanks for introducing me to it. XXXX

  8. Just the packaging alone! can't drink tea but love the ceremony of it all. I hope that you are discovering lots of soothing blends to relax you these pre-wedding days Janet. That's all I can think about when I think of you, if I am excited I can't imagine how you feel! Going to pop over to the link, maybe I should try it again? Much love and many hugs. XOXO

  9. Dear Janet,
    I rarely seem to make time for tea, but this is a lovely reminder that I should. Thank you for that. Btw, I sent you an email. Not sure how often you check so I thought I'd mention that. Hope you are enjoying a peaceful day.

  10. I just discovered your beautiful blog. I am in tears listening to your beautiful music. Your blog is a full sensory experience!! I have to ask, is your georgeous tea strainer above, an Astier de Villatte piece? Many thanks, and I look forward to following your blog, best wishes, Kathy.

  11. I've always been a coffee drinker but last week I purchased several specialty loose teas for a very special occasion coming up...
    Teas are perfect for bringing women together-the heady scents, warm delicate tea cups, mild flavors, and the echos of women laughing-a perfect indulgence for all of the senses.

    I hope all is well with you,

  12. Tea has certainly come a long way! I love the look of these teas you have featured. Packaging is so stylish.Fiona

  13. I have been looking for an equisite tea for the store and have just placed an order - thank you Janet for always finding the best of the best


  14. Oh my lovely does this tea look...I am afraid I would not want to drink it but look at it all day long...what pretty packaging.

    You always find the loveliest treasures...sending you oooodles of long weekend joy...I know you are up to something fun. oxoxxoox

  15. Mom,
    This is all so beautiful, you always pick the most beautiful things~ One of my favorite things is to sit, drink tea, sit some more and fill our cups together.

    I love you,

  16. Love tea, it is always me drink of choice, pretty post. Thanks for sharing, Laura from Cottage and Broome
