Tea Swap

All right, so I decided to join the Knit One Tea Too Swap. I am pretty psyched since these are two things that I love and I could always use a cup of tea! Here is the questionnaire that we were asked to post:

Do you like loose tea or bags, or both – something you want to try?
I like tea bags... I am not such a fan of loose tea, I know I know, it just takes too much time!
What is your favorite kind of tea (Brand, flavor, variety, etc)?
So I love English Breakfast, Irish Breakfast, Earl Grey like teas and Raspberry Bigelow, but mostly the non flavored varieties.
Favorite color in regards to tea or one you would like to try? (black, green, red, and white) (keeping in mind that this is how this swap is set up).
I am up for trying anything, but I mostly just drink black tea now.
Would you say you were a tea pot kind of person or just a hot water heater kind?
I love my electric tea kettle that I scored for Christmas last year.
What tea accessories would you like but have never purchases for yourself?
Hmmm...Scented tea coasters, any kind of honey....
How do you prefer to be pampered? (examples: mani/pedi, bubble bath, yummy treat, etc).
Mani/Pedi Absolutely!
If you were a kind of yarn what would you be and why?
I would be a soft merino yarn, worsted weight, nice and cozy.
If you had to knit/crochet baby booties, a fun fur scarf, or a fair isle sweater, which would you choose and why? Ooh, that is a toughie. I am split-part fair isle for the challenge, part baby booties for my love of knitting baby things.
What other event would make you skip a tea party? (A garden party? A book club meeting? A yoga class? Opening night for a new action thriller? etc?) A nice power yoga class.
What treat would you consider essential at your tea party? (Sweet? Salty? Scones? Those petite pastry trays with a couple of all sorts of things? Little crust less sandwiches?)
Definitley sweet no doubt.
When buying yarn for a project how do you choose - do you buy the one called for or do you substitute? I usually substitute with a yarn on sale. I am not rich yet, haha
What do you carry your knitting/crocheting in when on the go?A Vera Bradley Tote or a nice small shopping bag with handles.
Favorite movie to watch while knitting/crocheting? A good drama... maybe historical drama.
Are you a traditional tea cup kind of person or a mug type of person? Do you care if they match? I love a good set of non-matching mugs. Particularly the oversized mugs...has to be oversized!
Favorite childhood birthday party? Strawberry Shortcake
Favorite type of scone and jam?A buttercream scone with strawberry jam.
If you use candles, what is your favorite scent? Vanilla, lavendar, citrus
If you could choose 3 people to have 'tea' with, who would they be and why? (famous or not, living or dead). My mom, my nanny, and my Aunt Jackie or my Aunt Kate
You've been invited to a tea party, what 'props' will you wear (formal or casual)? Definitley casual jeans with birkenstocks and a t-shirt or comfy sweater.
Any allergies/preferences you have or are willing to admit to? Just bees
Anything we missed that you want your pal to know? Nope thats all!
