Gifts from a fellow tea blogger

When my friend Maureen and I met for tea back before Christmas, she arrived bearing a delightful assortment of tea-related gifts, including this cute snowman bag, various teas, some madeleines (which were delicious!), some chai flavored mints and a fun "Keep Calm and Make Tea" teabag caddy. (Recognizing my longtime love of ballpoint pens, she also gifted me with one of those, a gorgeous handmade wooden pen made by a friend, but it was upstairs on my writing desk at the time I took these photos!)

Of course I was also completely thrilled to find a cross-stitched card stitched by her husband. Isn't that gorgeous!

While I munched and sipped the edibles and drinkables pretty quickly, I still have a few of these great Sencha Naturals mints left. These are housed in a neat little cardboard tube, and these are so good, I'll definitely be on the lookout for them in stores!

You twist the tube, and inside you can see …

… small mints in the shape of tea leaves. Clever!
