Tea on Tuesday: Elegant & English

I've had such a sweet tooth lately so when I came across these Elegant & English biscuits, I decided to give them a try. They are actually made in England and even had a quotation from Samuel Johnson (English Author 1709-1784) on the side of the box.

A hardened and shameless tea-drinker, whose kettle has scarcely time to cool; who with tea amuses the evening, with tea solaces the midnight; and with tea welcomes the morning.

I'm joining Kimmie at Art in Red Wagons for tea today.
Chocolate Raspberry biscuits along with Asian Plum White Tea make for a perfect afternoon snack.

Hope you are having a terrific Tuesday. Friendship blessings, Tammy

Oh, that does sound elegant. I love the English - writers, gardens, Miss Marple, Rosamunde Pilcher (Scottish). Hope you had a perfectly wonderful tea. Diane

I love the quote! Frequently heard in my house, "is the water in the kettle still hot?" meaning someone has recently made a cup of tea and someone is about to make one. The biscuits look divine :)

Those biscuits look delicious. I love a "cookie" with little sweetness to it.

I'm really late getting here this week. That tea with chocolate and raspberry biscuits look lovely, even though it's bedtime here. I think we both have the same sweet tooth, as mine has been on a rampage lately. Hope you had a lovely Tea Tuesday.

Hi Tammy....That's so nice you went to your friend's house for lunch. Sounded good.

Oh,by the way, regarding the cornbread? I added the berries, prunes, pecans, AND the creamed corn. Everything in one big bowl, mix, and bake. Mmm mmm mmm I have to say, it's yummy. hee hee Take care. Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

Thanks for stopping by, Tammy. Chocolate raspberry, oh my, sounds divine.

I think I'll join you with some afternoon tea just now. It's 3:30 so my timing couldn't be more perfect.

Much love!!
