November Tea: A Virtual Tea Party

My tea cozy corner, where I sat for the virtual tea party


Take three good friends in three timezones, a leisurely afternoon, 3 good cups of tea, a treat or two or three, and season with the magic of technology. You've got the makings for a great virtual tea party! By virtual, I mean over the phone.

I enjoyed such an event last Friday evening. I had a conference call with two of my dear Western Skies friends. We each held a cup of tea and we spent the hour sipping and chatting. It was very fun and connecting. I highly recommend it! Next time, we plan to give Skype a try with some video conferencing, too! Wouldn't it be fun to SEE the mug or cup and saucer your friend is using, along with her lovely face?

What a fun idea! You seem wayyyy more tech-savvy than I, however, so it may be a while before I go virtual. And I love your tipping teapot! (Isn't that what it's called?)

What a lovely idea, for friends apart. I love your tea pot! I going to have to find me a white one. I have fallen in love with white.

OOOH! You have had a virtual Teaparty! I had an idea of doing that via blogging - but skype sounds great too!

Hello! Yes, it's a tipping teapot. It came from Germany. If you lay it on its side, the loose tea steeps. When it sits up tall, the tea is out of the water.

I love your Virtual Tea Party idea, what fun!

I have a teapot like yours, but don't use it. I must get it down and try it out again.

Great idea, Steph ... your tea corner is charming. I love the teapot shaped tea caddy with the votive candle!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! xxx
