Time for...another celebration!

Hello there,

Welcome back to Tea With Me and Friends...doesn't time fly....at the end of June we will be celebrating two tea-riffic years of writing this little blog!

Cheers! Tea With Me and Friends celebrate two years!


We are constantly surprised at how this blog grows and can't thank everyone enough for their continued support...we're so pleased that you all enjoy a spot of afternoon tea as much as we do! We may not have made it to the finals of the UK Blog Awards again, but we are very proud of our new logo, our Facebook page and YouTube channel which are all new additions in the last year.

More than anything we love meeting and talking with new and old tea lovers - both in person and virtually!

We'd like to say a HUGE thank you to all the hotels and brands who have worked with us in the last year. We have had some amazing afternoon tea adventures and tried some scrummy new teas! We'd also like to say a HUGE thank you to all our lovely guest bloggers....and to Connie...our first guest vlogger! 

If you want to share your adventures please get in touch, we'd love to hear from you!

Do you remember when Lorna dressed her scone the "wrong way"?!

Lastly we would like to say the BIGGEST thank you to all our beau-tea-ful readers....thank you for coming back each week and reading our ramblings and watching our vlogs! Now for the exciting bit....we are very lucky to have another fab prize to give away this year to celebrate our Blog Birthday....this time we are joined by the lovely Pia from Piacha who is giving one lucky winner and a friend and tea-filled adventure....

My favorite tea at the moment is Black forest tea from the bluebird tea co. Since seeing your review a few weeks ago I was wondering whether I would like them, placed an order and wow they are yummy I also love their rhubarb and custard.

My overall favourite type of tea is green jasmine, and particularly Moonlight Jasmine by Dragonfly. For black tea I like Williamson Organic Golden Himalaya Darjeeling best. And I rather like Piacha tea too!
