Living the Victorian Life-A new series

I contemplated starting another blog about living the Victorian life in a modern day world.
But with all I have going on I didn't need another thing added to my already busy days.
So I decided to do a weekly post on this blog, since anything Victorian does relate to Truer Words, about how to live a simpler, more genteel life in the current world.
And so I will start with the relaxing beauty of taking tea:).
First, start with a nice blend of loose leaf tea.

Next, stroll through the gardens for fragrant blooms.
Brew the tea (be sure to use the good china:), place blooms in a favorite vase or container, and sit down to a relaxing cup of  tea.
Tea paired with a favorite magazine or a good book can make an afternoon relaxing and enjoyable.
Of course, I would be happy to recommend a lovely historic novel...
I will be posting later in the week about brewing the perfect pot of tea (including how to decaf it:).
To order the delicious chocolate and coconut Soho Blend from Harney and Sons teas visit:
Just a few words about this tea...
It is scrumptious!!! As soon as you open the package the chocolate aroma makes your mouth water.
The subtle hints of coconut intermingled with the chocolate flavors makes this more like desert than just tea:).
