A nice, quiet summer morning
by Rich Heiser
Blueberry Tea Biscuits and White Tea
Not really a party...well, perhaps for two. It was simply a beautiful morning. The hummingbirds were feeding at the feeder on our deck. There were a few butterflies making the rounds already. The sun was up but not high enough yet to be too hot. In fact, the remnants from the cloud filled skies of yesterday were still evident as a soft summer breeze gently blew them away. The air smelled clean and felt cool as it swirled its way across the yard.
Then I got a pleasant surprise. Freshly made blueberry tea biscuits and a cup of white tea. A perfect start to a perfect day. Here's how the blueberry biscuits are made...simple yet delicious!

Thanks so much for sharing something useful for our readers to enjoy. Paul and I often enjoy a tea breakfast on our terrace outside. When the temperature permits, I especially enjoy the beauty of our terrace that is covered with flowers of various varieties. No Hummingbirds have found us yet, we are 22 stories up.
Sipping my tea (often an black earl grey), I enjoy looking far into the distance. We can easily spot Giants stadium and other interesting buildings.
We will definitely try the Blueberry Tea Biscuits while New Jersey is harvesting their fresh crop.
BTW, I have a story for you with a recipe as well, as soon as I get Paul to give me the exact ingredients I'll be in touch.
