Birthday tea

The 5 & 10¢ store. Poster for the Works Progress Administration shows various items that can be purchased at a five and ten cent store: a ring, checkers board, scarf, notebook, tie, gift box, pan, cactus, handkerchief, photoframe, calendar, birthday card, scissors, tea set, and pitcher.

I celebrated a birthday this month and surprisingly did not think about treating myself to tea on the day.  Here's hoping to next year so I can celebrate it with tea.  How have you incorporated tea into your birthday or other special occasion?
