Tea Time cards are a wonderful idea. Thanks Avonlea for sharing the great tea links. These will be just the right cards for cheering friends on cold winter days. A wonderful after-Christmas project for me.
Through thick and thin it's plain to see
you'll always be a friend to me.
Though near or far I hope that we
will find some time to share some tea.
Day in and out I strive to be the kind of (mother, sister, friend, aunt cousin ...) you've been to me.
So let's pretend you're here with me and sit right down to have some tea.
-- and a variation of the original Christmas one --
On Christmas day (Easter, Mother's Day ...) at half past three,
have yourself a cup of tea.
At that time I will be, remembering (what you mean to me (all you've done for me).

This has nothing to do with tea, but the candy spoons mention above.
Melt dark chocolate in a double boiler and dripple into plastic spoons, they make for great chocolate coffee stir spoons! YUMMMMM

I have drunk tea brewed by the women who picked it
At the end of their day and the start of my night.
I have drunk tea after birth and it tasted like nectar.
I have had tea with milk, sugar, jasmine and Mary.
I have drunk Ceylon in Ceylon, and Darjeeling in Darjeeling.
I have had it green, black, white, red and golden.
I have drunk it from porcelain, bamboo and clay.
I have cried into it and had my future read from it.
I have drunk it when I haven’t wanted it, and when I’m desperate for one.
I’ve drunk it with Russian sailors, Shivas, divas, grandmothers, vicars, lovers, friends.
In my dreams I’ve had a nice cup of tea with the Queen, Attilla the Hun, Elvis, Nelson Mandela.
I’ve had it hot, iced and spiced.
I’ve drunk it in the air, up a mountain, on an elephant, in a train, and tea at sea.
Tea, tea, tea, will you share a cup with me?
Some time ago I made some tea bag ATCs to send to ladies hosting ATC swaps I was in. I folded a sort of jacket to go around a Tea bag that was ATC size and put the bag in. On a tag that slipped in the other side I wrote the following poem. It's like the Christmas Tree one just with a slight change.
On Thursday week
At half past three
Let's sit and have a cup of tea.
I'll think of you...
You think of me
Getting acquainted through our ATC.
