Ruby Tuesday


Sometimes, the most wonderful treat is a cup of tea.  Nothing fancy - a tea bag in a white china mug will do.  This was one of the most welcome cuppa's I've ever had.  Funny how a photo can take you back to the mood and feeling of a time. Last summer,  I was tired and footsore from walking, walking, walking the streets of Dublin.  Near St Stephen's Green, there was a cafe with two tables on the pavement...


For more Ruby Tuesday experiences, join Mary T here.  Better yet, find a photo with red in it and join in.

It sounds like the perfect ending to a perfect day.

Oh yes I love thinking back. A sound, Smell and Taste can do they. Come be and visit my Oasis, I'll have a cup of tea just for you.

Amazing how a simple visual or even a scent can send you back to good memories. Nice one this week.

Excellent framing!

I love the Dorothy header! But that is the actual teabag that you snapped in Dublin? I wonder if you could order the same teabags? Of course even if you did, it would never taste as good as on that one day...

Barry's is a nice tea indeed. But, I am partial to Lyons myself.

Rudee - that was just a much needed break in the afternoon. There was so much more to come.

Ginny - That photo was taken at the cafe while I waited for the tea to steep. I don't think it would have mattered what brand the tea was at that point.

hip chick - I never really developed any favorite while in Ireland. This was the only time, though, that the tea was not served in a proper pot.

A lovely red picture and such a nice story to go with it. I love tea, I start each day with a cup of tea.

I have never heard of that brand of tea? I am a Red Rose girl in Canada, Tetleys is also good.

You're always assured of a mug of tea in our house!
