Fathers Day Tea

My guy is not big fan of tea. Unless it is cold, sweet and on ice, he always prefers a big mug of coffee.

When my hubby and I traveled to Belgium last year, we visited a tea house for a spot of refreshment. Dear hubby ordered a Russian tea that really hit a home run with him. He had traveled to Moscow 8 years ago and enjoyed their rich hot tea, but never was able to find it here. The tea in Belgium was a good strong Russian blend. So for today, I am honoring my hubby with a cup of Russian tea.

The handsome pocket watch belonged to my hubby's grandfather.

We bought several bags of the Russian tea.......

I hope the Fathers in your life enjoy their special day.

What a wonderful tea to honor your dear husband. I'm sure this will be a big hit since he is a tea lover. Love the china your using and the red tea pot is a big hit with me. I'm visiting over from Marty's TT.
Hope your week is great.

Hi and thank you for sharing your wonderful tea with Tea Time. I love your china. It looks like Johnson Bros., is it? A lovely tea to honour your hubby! Glad he found a tea he enjoys! Have a delightful week.

A very masculine tea... I don't think that I have ever had Russian tea before. Sounds yummy! I don't think that I could get my hubs to do this... LOL! I'm pretty sure! :)

This is wonderful! My husband isn't interested in the sort of tea time we love to share here - he does love his sweet iced tea. I have,however, been able to get him to drink unsweetened tea - this is a big deal for a Southern man!
Your manly tea setting is wonderful - perfectly set - have never seen/nor tried Russian tea - I will now be on the lookout for it!
Thank you for sharing this marvelous post with A Return to Loveliness,
God Bless,

A very nice tea setting. Our daughter's inlaws are from Belgium and I've never seen them drink tea here and maybe it's because ours is not as strong and rich as what you've shown.

I would love to try a cup of Russian tea! Your tea setting is perfect for a fella. The china you are using reminds me of Johnson it? I think it is perfect for a manly tea.
