Teatime With The Teaposy (CLOSED)

Teatime, for some it evokes visions of the Queen taking high tea with a pot of tea and a plate of crumpets and watercress sandwiches. In other parts of the world, Tea time is just plain old "Dinner time" no pomp and circumstance, just the evening meal.

Maybe we should revive the tradition of Tea Time - not the fancy "Queen" kind of tea, but a short period of time in the afternoon when we can relax, drink a cup of warm, calming tea and reflect before resuming our activities for the day. Taking ten or fifteen minutes to sit down with a cup of tea and your thoughts before the kids come home from school can sometimes mean the difference between sanity and chaos.

One very relaxing - and pretty way to enjoy your tea would be with the Teaposy. Simply fill the simple glass pot with hot water and add the beautiful tea blooms. In minutes you'll have not only delicious tea, but a pot full of lovely flowery blooms.



We have one (1) Teaposy pot and tea set to give away to one lucky reader!

I've seen this before and I was dying to try it. I'm a hardcore tea drinker but sometimes making tea is boring. Just watching those blooming teas really get me excited about drinking the tea. My tea drinking could be more relaxing as I watch the blooms grow and swirl around the pot.

I've been a diehard tea drinker ever since my Grandpa sat me on his lap and gave me hot tea out of a saucer. That's how he drank his tea - from a saucer. It cooled faster that way. I love tea in every fashion, and have been wanting to try the flowers.

I'm thinking that taking some much-needed me time to watch the flower bloom as the tea steeps would be very peaceful. With a 3 month old and a 3 year old in the house, that peaceful me time doesn't occur very often. This would certainly help. How can you not relax while watching a flower bloom?

Their tea pots are so pretty! I'd love to settle down with some tea after the kids go to bed at night. By that time, I've usually nearly lost my marbles.

C'mon! That's the coolest tea EVER! I remember seeing it done in that movie with Kirsten Dunst playing the Queen of France. I have seen one kind for sale, but the price was outrageous. I would be SO happy to get this for free! I would invite someone I know enjoys "teatime" as much as I do... my mother! We don't get to sit and chat enough nowadays. It would make the meeting perfect!

The "hand-blown borosilicate glass for each teapot, cup, and warmer" would create a luxurious tea-drinking experience for me cup after wonderful cup. Thanks!

At the end of the day drinking a Chamomile blend, watching the amazing Tea Posy bloom would be amazingly peaceful.

Well, heck, I could sit and watch their video all day, it's so calming and peaceful - imagine how I could set the tone for myself and my day by watching, for example, the Heart of Love Teaposy bloom, or the Falling Water, etc. Amazing stuff. asthenight at gmail dot com

I've wanted a Teaposy Set ever since I first found out about them. I'd like to try the Teaposy Red Song Teaposies first because it looks the most dramatic. I'm a big tea drinker and I think I could convert my friends and family into tea drinkers if I were to show them a teaposy in action.

I'm easily amused and when something grabs my attention, I watch it, observing all the details. To watch the blooming teas would be extremely peaceful.

What a delight for the eyes. It just adds to the sensory appeal when you see that beauty. Tea becomes an experience rather than just a drink.

I can totally use a relaxing tea at work. I am dealing with 24 units burning down last month (I am a property manager) and I am still going crazy. I need to chill out in a healthy and safe outlet.

These are genuinely exquisite and so relaxing to watch the tea unfold (even before the sipping begins...

My sister-in-law has a Teaposy and we all enjoy gathering around watching and inhaling - it really is like a soothing ritual.

So pretty! I hope it tastes as good as it looks. A teaposy might help me unwind after a long day with the younguns. The older I get, the more important tea becomes!
