You're My Cup of Tea {Giveaway}

*sob* I'm sad my favourite mug is broken. I have one of 4 left.
My favourite treat is when my beloved brings me a cup of tea in bed, first thing in the morning.

Before I have to get up, and start thinking about school lunches, socks and lost library books or permission notes or anything else I needed to do ...yesterday !

I was to'tea'lly delighted when I received a little hamper of Fairtrade tea.

I love the little infuser for one - available on Tielka website
Tea! thou soft, thou sober, sage, and venerable liquid,... thou female tongue-running, smile-smoothing, heart-opening, wind-tippling cordial, to whose glorious insipidity I owe the happiest moment of my life, let me fall prostrate.  ~Colley Cibber, Lady's Last Stake

I drink all kinds of tea , my favourite is a mug of strong Australian Afternoon for breakfast and English Breakfast all during the day (I'm a bit of a tea rebel) and lots of green tea. Green tea is ultra healthy and filled to the brim with antioxidants, so I'm trying to drink more of it . Plus organic tea is my tea of choice.

I have a lovely purple teapot and the nifty tea infuser above for leaf tea , though often I'm too impatient to use leaves.

I like Chai tea but I'm not drinking much milk right now - so it's a rare treat.
All tea is good for you.

A cup of tea calms me and

It was Fairtrade Fortnight ~ May 4 – 19th - creating awareness and the opportunity to support Fairtrade products. I'm trying to be more conscious about what I buy.

Fairtrade have provided this fabulous giveaway of 3 tea hampers, for My Little Drummer Boy Readers.

What is Fairtrade about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. 

Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, by requiring companies to pay sustainable prices ,which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives and their community through better schooling and improved health services.

I'm curious -
Do you prefer a cup or a mug ?
Do you use a Teapot ?
Do you Jiggle or Dangle ?

Who wants to knit me a tea cosy ?
