Thirsty Thursday #13 Plus PlusHi! I'm going to veer off our normal review style; I hope you don't mind.
The brand is Novel Teas and what makes it special are the tags. Each tea bag tag has a quote or something literary written on it. That's also why I'm chose this outfit; I was feeling a bit Austen-ish. (giggles)
Anyway, we've already used 2 of the bags, but are keeping the tags - for now.
The bottom is the one from today. The top one is hard to read, it is a Japanese proverb that says, "If you believe everything you read, better not read."
You get 24 tea bags.
What kind of tea is inside?
It has a lovely amber color and warm aroma.
It tastes good plain.
But I find it better with a touch of sugar and milk. Mmmmmm.
Thank you, Lady Grey, for this bit of whimsy for our tea collection. The tea tastes great and we get nifty little reads while it steeps.

I'm also here to tell you about these great utensils!
Xyra entered a giveaway at Mommy's Doll Club and was chosen to receive two sets. They are from Solid Oak, Inc. and are the perfect size for our needs. If you look back at the photos you can see two of the spoons with our tea things.
Thank you Mommy's Doll Club and Solid oak, Inc. for these great additions to our collection.
[Xyra aside: The primary purpose of the utensils is the creation of steampunk jewelry. I do not believe they are truly food safe. However, the spoon is the perfect portion size for the amount of sugar we put in our tea.]
Plus PlusFinally, I get to model again. Flo sent us this beautiful dress.
Perfect for Jane Austen fans. We all thought of Lainey D when we saw it! Don't the blue stripes and sash bring out my eyes.
I added the neckerchief, tights, shoes, and necklace. Oh, we didn't take a photo of it without the neckerchief! Sorry, Flo! The neckline is beautifully square, but I felt a bit bare. (giggles)
The sash can be tied in back with long ends or around front like I have it.
Well, hope you enjoyed today's Thirsty Thursday Plus Plus post. Raising a cuppa in your direction!
Stop again soon! Have a nice day!
