This project is a great little gift for those far away from us. It comes with a set of poems that you can use depending on the situation.
What you needCard stock
Start by cutting out a tea pot shape and attaching the tea bag to the inside along with a copy of your chosen poem from below.
We also have another version of this tea poem especially for christmas which comes with a pine cone tree: Christmas Tea Poem.
There are too many miles between us
for me to get to you.
So I am sending you a tea bag and this will
have to do.
So make your self a cup of tea
and when you drink it
I’ll think of you and
you think of me
together sharing a cup of tea.
I cannot sit and chat with you,
the way I’d like to do.
So brew yourself a cup of tea,
I’ll think of you, you think of me.
When you are feeling sad & blue
And have no clue what to do
Sit down and have a cup of tea
And a hug or two or maybe three
Feel those troubles melt away
And start you on a better day.

Tea Cures All
Tea that helps our head and heart.
Tea medicates most every part.
Tea rejuvenates the very old.
Tea warms the hands of those who’re cold.
(J. Jonker, Amsterdam circa 1670 )
If I could take your Troubles,
I would toss them in the Sea.
But since I can’t, I’m sending you,
My favorite cup of tea.
