Tea for Tuesday

Today's SoCal clouds cast against a brilliant blue sky — a novelty — have my thoughts turning to romance.  Below is a vintage Valentine to partner with the theme of this post, followed by a very romantic quote and a tea suggestion.
"And what is a kiss, specifically?  A pledge properly sealed, a promise seasoned to taste, a vow stamped with the immediacy of a lip, a rosy circle drawn around the verb 'to love,' the pulse rising from the heart to utter its name on a lover's lip: 'Forever'."
-Edmond Rostand, French Playwirght and Poet (1868-1918)

TEA SUGGESTION: Try Harney and Son's "Jane's Garden Tea" for an elegant cup of floral and jasmine.  It is a delightful blend of Bancha green tea and rosebuds!  This tea is a tribute to Jane Lloyd who battled breast cancer.
