Time to Relax and Rejuvenate #SipbySip

This post was sponsored by Republic of Tea who provided me with two samples for the purposes of this post.  All opinions and writings are strictly my own.

Easy to make and beautiful to present, these open faced cucumber sandwiches are perfect to serve at your next tea party.

Please join us at our virtual #SipbySip tea party today......

My friend Cam of Culinary Adventures with Camilla invited me to join her and other bloggers in a #SipbySip tea tasting sponsored by Republic of Tea.  When we agreed to join her for this virtual tea party Republic of Tea sent each of us tea samples to try.  I was provided Daily Beauty, a blueberry and Lavender tea as well as Beauty Sleep, a Chamomile Rose tea.  

For today's post, I am showcasing the Blueberry Lavender Tea which is caffeine free, filled with antioxidants from the blueberries and calms you with the lavender flowers.

As you read this, I am currently sitting either beachside or poolside in Cayman Brac.  Or perhaps I am under the sea....the most calming place I know. But before this week I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off for the last month and a half.  Not only was I running the Lenten Fish Fry for our church and planning our family Easter Dinner but in our spare time we were adopting a teenager and throwing a "Gotcha Gathering" to celebrate the great day!!!

In the middle of all this chaos....after Easter but before our vacation, I found time to sit, relax and regroup with a nice cup of tea and some delicious, easy to make cucumber sandwiches.  It was very pleasant....I was going to say Heaven but I think this week I am in Heaven and that was just a prelude.

Let's take a look at what the others brought to the tea party today.....

This soothing cup of tea and healthy, delicious sandwiches are the perfect way to relax and pamper yourself for an hour.  You will feel rejuvenated and ready to take on the world again.
