Spring is in the Air (or at least it is at the Market flower shop)



Welcome to Over a Cup of Tea with Celia M.

Though the calendar says spring is less than a week away ... I don't think the mountains of snow that still linger and the cold temps quite got the memo. Let's hope they get it soon. Thankfully the local flower market is filled with wonderful potted tulips, daffodils and SHAMROCKS !!! Nothing quite says spring like the color GREEN!


In honor of St. Patrick's Day and spring (even if it does not quite feel or look like it) I have chosen some Yogi Kombucha Green Tea.


And what better than some delish chocolate to accompany our tea... 
don't worry the pieces are small bite size (ok ... maybe 2-3 bites size). 


This little darling with shamrocks and petite roses is perfect to sip our tea.

There is even a little rose on the handle...




Aside from the fabulous tasty tea ... I always enjoy the messages Yogi tea share.

Today's message ~ is a good reminder to be kind to ourselves ...
I am beautiful, I am bountiful, I am blissful

After reading such wonderful affirmations - helps set a positive tone for the rest of the day.

I couldn't resist the dark chocolate and delicate raspberry ganache with rose petals and the white chocolate and pistachio praline, to accompany my cup of tea.

Which chocolate did you choose?

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all my wonderful Irish readers across the miles
and to all who are Irish for the day!!

Hugs and Blessings,
