Tea Time Tuesday 6: Rainy day cheer

Hello Lovely Readers!
It's a rainy day here at Bessie's Cottage,
and a perfect opportunity to have tea.
Good old Orange Pekoe does the trick today. 
Bea is off gallivanting across the country while Bessie 
keeps the home fires burning and the kettle whistling.
If you are cold, tea will warm you
if you are too heated; it will cool you
if you are depresses, it will cheer you
if you are exhausted, it will calm you. 
- William Gladstone
There isn't a biscuit in the house ~ not even one. 
Bessie will have to venture off to the market soon to remedy that horrid situation!
In the meantime, it gets one thinking about all the tasty treats go with tea...
English Scones
Canadian Butter Tarts

Earl Grey Shortbread
Nanaimo Bars

“The spirit of the tea beverage is one of peace, comfort and refinement.”
-- Arthur Gray
