Oh, my word, do I have a fun post for you today!
Not only did I receive some fun Downton Abbey gifts for Christmas,
but I also just received a package from England -
an incredible blog giveaway win from Jean at Delightful Repast!
I received the hanging "servants' bell" ornament from my
sister-in-law Jenn, the blackcurrant jam from my MIL.
I received the cookbook and the cloissonne teapot ornament
from my daughters.
I can't wait to open the jam -
going to have some Tregothnan tea
and make some scones with clotted cream to enjoy
tomorrow evening when the new (final) season of
Downton Abbey is on!
The large Chronicles of Downton Abbey book
I bought last October when my tea society sisters
and I went to the grand opening of a lovely tea room together.
My giveaway win, coordinated by Jean of the blog
was for a wonderful gift directly from the
OH, MY GOODNESS, WHAT A NICE GENEROUS PACKAGE!
(Worth a huge $$$ amount, plus the shipping! WOW!!)
This is a tea company that grows its own tea in England!
It came so nicely packaged - the smaller teapot is
perfect for one, or for a large cuppa for you and a friend.
It has a wonderful firm drop-in fine mesh infuser with a really easy
one hand thumb-opening lift-lid-
such a convenient and smart design!
I am not one to normally use modern teapots-
not when I have a bajillion antique ones in my collection,
but I will certainly enjoy using this one
due to its perfect size, design and hardiness.
The metal lid/bits ARE removeable too if one
wants to microwave or dishwash the pot.
The teapot came in a very nice solid box
and four kinds of Tregothnan Tea.
The teas each came in lovely cardboard gift box "tins."
Each tea was airtight sealed for freshness,
and had a nice bit of tea - perfect for a strong pot or two!
I received the following kinds of loose-leaf tea:
Great British Tea
Earl Grey Tea
I will be sampling these very soon
and posting the results.
The Tregothnan Tea website sells some wonderful goods -
I HIGHLY recommend you pop on over check their website out !
They sell all sorts of gifts, tours, flowers, books -
all things tea and lovely related items!
Through them one can also rent the most beautiful cottages
for the ultimate Cornwall get-away!
Here are a few of the pics of these splendid homes
that I found on their website!
AREN'T THESE DROOL WORTHY???!!!???
