Tea Time, obviously is a time for tea! Means it is for "tea" only, coffee is not allowed.

It also means tea must be the key ingredient in any item you make for this theme. You may wander what kind of Tea and what tea product to make for this month, here is a summary:

1) Everything related to tea(as ingredient) is accepted, excluding cooked savoury dishes.
2) only product made of any kind of tea eg. black tea, green tea and red tea is accepted.
3) Tea(as ingredient) related cooked dessert include pudding and jelly etc are accepted.
4) baked items including cakes, cupcakes, cookies, muffins etc are accepted.
