Tea On Tuesday


“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
 C.S. Lewis

“Sometimes all you need is a good cup of Tea”
– Unknown

“If you are cold, tea will warm you;
if you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you.”
 William Ewart Gladstone

“Rainy days should be spent at home with a cup of tea and a good book.”
 Bill Watterson

Here is my go to recipe for scones.

Sweet Scones

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 Tablespoon baking powder

8 Tablespoons (1 stick) cold butter, cut up

1/3 cup sugar

2/3 cup milk

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Mix flour and baking powder in a large bowl. Mix well. Add butter and cut in with a pastry blender or rub with fingers until looks like fine granules. Add sugar - toss to mix. Add milk and stir with a fork until soft dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured board - knead about 10-12 times. Roll out 1/2 inch thick; cut with a round cutter. (I use a small canning jar) Bake on ungreased cookie sheet 12 minutes until brown. Cool o
n a wire rack.

I hope you enjoyed these tea quotes and if you make the scones, let me know!


  1. Love this post! Tea is my favorite; and with a good book to read, it's perfect! Blessings in your upcoming week!

  2. Oh, I most certainly DO enjoy these tea quotes and this has prompted me to make myself a small pot of tea right now! Thank you for the scone recipe! I love a good scone!

  3. Scones and a hot coffee...yum!!!

  4. I keep a tea tag journal. It's a kind of memory book where I write down what happened on the day I drink tea...which is often so I usually only write the special days. I added two of these quotes to my tea journal. I'm always looking for ones I haven't read before.

  5. I've never made scones, but this recipe looks doable..even for me! Thanks!!

  6. Sounds yummy to me! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  7. This was so peaceful and calming. Perhaps I need some chamomile tea. ☕️
