Desk Par-Tea: Fashionable Friday with the Well Appointed Desk

A few weeks ago my knitting and tea drinking partner in crime Ana, owner of The Well Appointed Desk, asked if I would be interested in collaborating on one of her Fashionable Friday posts that would be the “corner” of office supplies and tea. Ana totally did all of the heavy lifting; my contributions were a few suggestions and one photo, but I still love the result and am thrilled to be cross-posting with her today. So I present to you, Fashionable Friday, the corner of desk and tea:

We selected some of our favorite goodies in paper,ink, tea and knitty loveliness. And hope it makes you want to settle in for the winter with all your favorites.

One of my absolute favorite tea companies is Adagio and I love their fandom blends. A personal favorite blend collection is “The Town we do not Speak of“. Its a collection of tea blends based on characters from the podcast, Welcome to Nightvale. My personal favorite blends are Hooded Figures, Glow Cloud, Perfect Carlos and Steve Carlsberg. The sampler set is available for $19 and includes Cecil, Perfect Carlos, The Management, The Weather, Hooded Figures and Steve Carlsberg in 0.5 oz tins. Highly recommended.
