What is in the Box?

Well, here I go with another Cracker Barrel story. I have heard from some of you that you don't have one nearby, and truly, I am sorry. They do have the neatest things. My girlfriend in SC actually got her pretty box from Bed, Bath, and Beyond, but I couldn't find one there by me. One day, innocently looking at CB, there it was. I was thrilled!
It is a tea box or chest. So elegant, like the expensive inns, for you to choose your tea. It is very nice when you set up a "tea station" for overnight guests.
I have had to replace one of the teas....not from guests though! Yep, that would be me. I LOVE Earl Grey. Capt. Picard has nothing on me. But I bought the wrong brand to replace in the box. I will have to improve on that. Would you like to join me? You can pick your cup too!
Speaking of cups. I have always had this idea, but never have done anything about it. Remember my favorite cup, the February cup? Well, I thought it would be so cute to have each of the 12 months. Then when someone came over for tea, they could drink out of their month's cup. I have always liked that idea. Has anyone already done that? Please let me know.

I loved our morning tea from the beautiful box each day when I visited you. How extra special it was when "Hubby" carried the box tableside to both of us so we we could make our tea choices! You always chose Earl Gray and I always chose Orange Spice. We had a great time, didn't we? And thanks to Hubby for being the best waiter in town!

What a neat box! I've never seen those at Cracker Barrel, wish I had.

I have the 12-month tea cups, and sometimes I remember to serve my guests with their month cup.

Hmmm, I think I'll try the peach tea!

Lovely tea box. I just love Cracker Barrel. I do not have one close, but when we travel I do make up for it. I was just there this past weekend and did a little spring shopping. Thanks for sharing your find

I love the birth-month tea-cup idea! How special that would be! I'll have the November one, please.
