Serious lack of pretty tea cups here
Well, I do miss Earl Grey tea. Not a single tea bag in sight, let alone a pretty cup.
However, we found this lovely peppermint tea. Lagg’s…ever heard of it? I haven’t. It’s seriously yummy and minty.
I’m sorry but this sturdy, white restaurant cup is about the best I can manage this tea cup Tuesday. But the fruit is super sweet and yummy!
This little female Brewer’s blackbird doesn’t care about my tea, as long as there’s some crumbs for her.
But I guess…when in Mexico…these girls were waiting on their drink. They negotiated a price of $5 and two straws for…
…this coconut! Must have been so fresh. I watched the fellow use his machete to chop the top off. I looked at the girls and they gave me a smile and said, “His fingers! We can’t watch!”. But his fingers were fine.
But the three parrots, who love peanuts and shouting just outside the hotel, say…
“Stop your whining about tea and go smell some plumeria…
…and then have a pina colada…you’re in Mexico, you don’t drink tea in Mexico!” Lol, OK then. 😀
Wow! It looks as though you two are having an amazing time 🙂
I also LOVE what you did with the old paintings – really brilliant idea!
And true – mexico is not for tea drinking – enjoy your pina coladas ladies.
Thank you so much Joanne. That bag is so wonderfully handy as a catch-all. You should make one. 🙂
Sunny, warm sand and sky- looks like a fun place to relax!
It’s just great here! 🙂
I hope you are having a good time in Mexico. Palm trees, parrots, and pina coladas sound very good to me! lol!
Sorry about the lack of tea and tea cups….but you do have some lovely alternatives : ) The plumeria looks gorgeous!
Have a safe and wonderful trip.
Thank you so much Terri. I miss my morning cup, but the plumeria makes up for it. 😀
So beautiful! What a wonderful vacation!
Thank you Donna, it is rather wonderful to get out on the Vancouver rain and cold. 😀
Looks like you are enjoying the sun in Mexico … who cares about tea when you have the sun!!! 😉 Happy Tea Day!
Yup, I’m starting to think this way too…lol. 😀
Sounds like you are having a wonderful time, Veronica. That sand looks so inviting. I am longing to walk in the sand on our beaches but that won’t be for a while. My son, who also lives in BC, just spent a week in Mexico and he had a blast. His pictures were amazing! Thank you for sharing at Tea Time and enjoy the rest of your trip.
Hi Sandi, it’s so easy for the BC-ers to head down here, isn’t it? Thank you so much for hosting; miss you all when I don’t have time to share. 😀
Oh! SUN!!! Have a super time – plenty of time for tea when you get back home.
So true Susan, thank you so much. Are you somewhere snowed under still? I hope the sun is shining down on you too…even if it’s a cold winter sun. 😀

Oh, this post talks to my island girl heart. Your photos are so vivid. And the plumeria. It has been ages since I smell fresh plumeria. Thanks for stopping by. And yes, I would love your recipe for madeleines once you get back from your wonderful vacation.
Hi Maria, you never forget that smell, do you? I’ll get on that in a week. 😀
Looks like you are enjoying your vacation even without some tea. And the beautiful flowering shrubs!
Hi Beth, I love the tropicals, (especially the plumeria). Wish I could grow them in the Pacific Northwest.
looks as if, aside from the lack of tea, its a wonderful trip so far …
So far so great! I missed the sunblock on a bit of skin along my bikini line, but other than that, all’s good. 😀
Hahaha – great tea post – if a bit unconventional with restaurant ware. The coconut chopping and parrot really sell the deal! But – scrolling down I saw you doing something amazing with thrift store canvas paintings and I’m all agog! Too amazing – will have to pin that for sure!
P.S. That would be a fantabulous post to link into my new All Things Bright and Beautiful Link-up I launched this week! It’s a monthly event – a link to all the details in my tea post here: http://www.thewritersreverie.com/2014/03/seamus-shamrock-farewell-tea.html
Hi Kathryn, thank you so much; I’ll go have a look. 😀
Sometimes we have to do without hot tea until we’re back home. With the sun, sand and coconut drinks, it’s not hard to let it go. LOL
Hi Judith, it’s true…lol. Although I do miss my morning cup. It’s funny, here, they just automatically pour you coffee…and then look at you funny, like WHAT? You don’t drink coffee? The whole of the civilized world drinks coffee! 😀
I love that you were looking for tea cups in Mexico. What fun! You get to travel everywhere. Lucky lady. Have a great week. Blessings, Martha
Big hugs right back at you Martha. 😀

Had a cup of Earl Grey the other day! The beauty of Mexico must make up for the tea absence. Also, fresh coconut juice is pretty tasty 🙂 (By the way, loved the picture of the plumeria.)
Mmm, miss it so much! Oh well…loads of Earl Gray at home, plus a decided lack of sun and sand and bare toes etc. Think I’ll do without and love every minute of here…lol. I love the plumeria too. Might be my most favourite fragrance…but wait…there’s violets and lily of the valleys and stargazers,and roses and lilacs…
Fantastic fun!! what a gorgeous day! That coconut water was probably delicious, mmmmmm
It probably was too. I love coconut but never liked the coconut water one buys at the store. I should try it from the coconut. 🙂
