Tea for Tuesday ~ Tea Poems

I have lots of little tea ideas I would like to share and would love ideas from you. Though I will talk about tea party favor ideas another day, there is something that I now like to include with the favors - or with a tea gift for a friend. I really like to include a little tea poem. You can find them on the internet or in books or make one up. Write or print it on a little card, tag, or bookmark and include it - you can even include the date of the party.

Here are 3 poems you can use:

A little cup of friendship
With a bag of tea
When you drink this
Think of love from me.
- Source unknown, found in many sites on the web

The Tea Party

I had a little tea party
This afternoon at three.
'Twas very small -
Three guests in all -
Just I, myself and me.

Myself ate all the sandwiches,
While I drank up the tea;
'Twas also I who ate the pie
And passed the cake to me.
- Have seen it listed as Author Unknown and as Jessica Nelson North

Cupcakes and Tea

Cupcakes and tea,
Some for you and me
To celebrate the little one's arrival, you see.

Cupcakes and tea
And a new baby
Fill our afternoon with fellowship and glee.

For cupcakes and tea,
We give thanks to Thee.
So many beautiful blessings have we.
- by Lisa Watson (I wrote it for a cupcake-themed baby shower tea)

Do you have a favorite tea poem?
