Tea & Biscuits



This weeks theme in Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday is "cuppa", so I took a picture of my new favourite tea: White Temple Tea. I've used Kim's new texture 1301 on this picture.

Teas with bergamot flavour has been my favourites until I tasted the White Temple Tea ... the flavours of mango, papaya, strawberry, pine apple and black currant do tickle my taste buds in a wonderful way! 

With the White Temple Tea I can easily settle with a thin short bread cookie - no longer craving for Oreos or Jaffa cookies - the fine, fruity taste of the tea is complete with a plain biscuit (or a few of them!).

I want to share with you this sweet poem about Tea and Bisquits - I wrote just the first and the last verse here. You can find all the verses by clicking the author under the poem.


Off comes the lid of the special tin
The special tin with biscuits in
Biscuit time with a hot cup of tea
Just the one will do me....

... Biscuits I must confess are the food that I love
A gift for my taste buds from Heaven above
Well I might as well finish with the last Butter Crunch
They're ever so thin and won't spoil my lunch.




What is your favourite tea & biscuit at the moment?

  1. I will have to look for that flavor. Right now I am enjoying wild blueberry. Reminds me of hot August summers. Love the biscuit poem!

    1. Yum...I absolutely love tea! And I don't usually eat biscuits with them, but it would be my favorite if I did. I drink so much tea, mostly Vanilla Rooibos, Vanilla Black or Spiced Green tea, that I think the calories would add up too quickly for me! :)

  9. Lovely photo., Nina. Lately I've been enjoying honey camomile tea and toast with orange marmalade. Usually around mid-afternoon. The white temple tea sounds delicious. I'll have to see if I can find it here. Shortbread is always a good choice. The poem is very sweet, and brought a smile to my face. Have a great weekend.
