Oolong Berry Tea and BB's Stamp!

How wonderful it is to receive a "real card" from an artist whose work you've admired but only seen online. Photos can't make up for actually being able to hold her card and of seeing up close how Liz uses pen and watercolour in her own personal style to record her much loved tea and scones. I am full of admiration for her drawing skills, her vibrant colours and the way she composes her sketches and makes the whole tea drinking experience one I wish I was participating in. One day please Liz - if I ever go to Sydney !!





Liz has seemingly tried 57 T2 teas and has only 89 to go!! This one is a new tea Oolong Berry described as "Raspberries combined with green oolong and intense yet delicately flavoured". Who could resist that - especially served in these beautiful teacups - shared with her friend after a rainy day's sketching in a Tearoom called Cockatoo Island.




And I'm now the proud owner of one of BB's stamps.

Good enough to eat, isn't it! Thanks for the big version of the scan too, Bridget, it's great to be able to see all the gorgeous detail.

What a perfect Liz card to receive!! I love all the colors at this High Tea, I also would love to join in on one of Liz's tea parties. I am amazed at how Liz can throw down a few lines and some well placed brush strokes and create another wonderful minimasterpiece. Beautiful

Liz seems to specialise in walking to good looking food recently.. when I look at her blog I get the impression that walking is mainly a means to arrive in some pastry shop or decent tea room..???? I am just joking and I had a nice cake today too!

thanks everyone - martin... you are SPOT ON!!! No point at all in walking unless there is tea and cake (or scones) waiting somewhere along the line!
