Celebrating the first teas of 2019 & my 4th year blogiversary!

Happy New Year! Hope 2019 has been treating you right.

My first cup of tea in 2019 was decaff English Breakfast.

Last Saturday, I enjoyed my first tea party at my place. We sipped Monarch Tea Co.'s Mistletoe Chai from my Shelley teacups.

Yesterday, Tea in the Valley turned 4. I can't believe that my little blog is now a junior kindergartner! I'm beyond grateful for all your visits and comments--your incredible support and interest in this little blog is what keeps it going: Celebrate Life...Dream Big...Laugh Often...Live Well...

  1. Happy 4th Blogiversary, Margie! Nice giveaway! You set a pretty table for your tea party! The decaff English Breakfast tea sounds good to me. I wonder who would carry it here? When I went to Bulk Barn they had no festive teas at all on the shelves. I was disappointed because they had always carried them before. There is new ownership so things have changed somewhat since my friends owned the store. You may enter me in your giveaway, please, and thank you! Have a great week.
