Friday Feast | The Pleasure of Tea and #Giveaway

Welcome to tea time in the Tavern on Friday Feast! The month of May is zipping by and it's been a long week. I'm struggling with a continued knee injury. Moving slowly is not in my DNA, but if I'm going to heal, I'm must learn to be patient.

A daily ritual in the afternoon is my cup of tea. It's time to pause while writing, doing edits, or creating a blog post for all the lovely readers. I've solved plot issues, character battles, and researched valuable information over a pot of tea. It's soothing, calms the nerves, and reinvigorates my mind and body. Of course what's tea without a proper cookie (or biscuit), right? Even with me hobbling around, I still manage to have my afternoon tea.

Currently, I have two favorite teas by Harney & Sons: Darjeeling (Loose tea), and Paris (Black tea with vanilla and lemony Bergamot).

Now for the fun part of this post. Leave a comment below telling me your favorite afternoon beverage. I will pick a random winner (all names will be tossed into my Scottish hat and my knight will draw forth the winner) to receive a $15 Amazon gift card.

I'll announce the winner next Friday Feast, May 20th.

Until then, I hope you join me in this daily ritual of tea, or coffee, or cocoa, or even a wee dram.
