Christmas Tea/Coffee Gifts

Hi everyone!

I just thought I would share a couple of the fun new tea/coffee things I received for Christmas. I am not showing the teacups Troy got me, just some odds and ends things. Mainly I got LOTS of new teas which is so nice because I was really running low!

My mom got me this ceramic thermal travel mug. It is so fun and bright!IMG_0448-tileShe also got me some new teas to try.

IMG_0452My friend Sandy got me some yummy new teas as well. I love that she took the time to buy “local”.

It is my favorite brand of coffee. However, it is a little pricey to use everyday so, it is savored as a special treat! Thank you Mike and Sherry!

Also from Mike and Sherry this gorgeous Teapot & Tea calendar! The photos in this calendar are stunning and frame worthy!

IMG_0455I have been wanting one of these steel carafes for awhile now. And he bought me one of Christmas! Yay! They may not be as pretty as a teapot but, these sure keep your drink hot for a very long time! I have some great thermos but, this pot holds  a lot of hot water (or whatever).

We like Dunkin Doughnuts coffee too; and Seattle's Best is really good too. My best to you, Troy, and the princess!
