Catching Up over a Cup of Tea



Hello to all my regular readers of HHL and welcome to all new readers.

I'm so happy you stopped in for tea today. It has been a while since I was able to share tea with all of you and I have missed your visits. 

I have chosen a special tea for today - one of my favorites teas comes from  Paris - Ladurée's Marie Antoinette. A delicious blend of Chinese black tea combined with rose petals, citrus fruit and honey.

So let's get the kettle going ...
Some wonderful Marks & Spencer almond biscuits will go beautifully with our tea.

Since we are catching up I thought a nice large cup would be useful. This one is a white cup with scroll detail and a pedestal base stem. It's made by Lenox and was a gift from my dear friend Nan writer of The LBD Diaries


Having brought the water to the right temperature ... this little gadget helps to ensure the proper steep time.


The generous size of this cup makes it perfect for steeping the cotton tea bag. 
  
Time ..... 

Perfectly Steeped...

Ladurée even in a tea bag - is heaven!

 
Now that we are settled in with our tea let me share with you some of the fabulous adventures that have been happening.

I spent the summer clicking away on my keyboard working on my chapter for an upcoming Adventures in Manifesting book (which has now gone to press - more info on the book at end of this post) and my own book -( title TBA later this year)which will be released in 2014. I'm working towards becoming a mentor with Brain Injury Society of Toronto for people living with brain injury. And in the middle of all this wonderful chaos decided to renovate our home in the city. Oh, and did I mention having a website set-up for High Heeled Life

I'm also excited to announce that starting later this month I will be incorporating Ask Celia M. with my weekly afternoon tea sharing. If you have a question about finding balance and creating your own High Heeled Life - you can send questions to askCeliaM@highheeledlife.com . Thank you to everyone who has already sent in their questions. Note: only the first letter  (i.e. N.) of your name will be used - unless you specify to have your name attached to your question (i.e. Nancy S.).

I would love to hear what you have been up to...

    1. It truly does make a difference in steeping. I also now use a kettle to boil water to the temp of the tea I'm using ... and I tell you worth every penny. xo Happy week-end.
