T Tuesday - Sapota Fruit

 Found this fruit at the Asian markets called Sapota, very soft on the outside, at first I thought it was mangosteen but the mangosteen I know has a very hard exterior. Anyway this is so awesome in flavour. Googling only showed me yellow type of fruit so I have no idea why this one is purple. maybe it cant handle the plane ride from overseas to Australia hahahaha.

It was funny when I texted my brother to ask him if he knew what this fruit was called, he texted back saying "Try Sapota and its not the underwear". In Fijian sapota means underwear hahahaha.
 I've been missing in action for a few weeks only because I've had no interesting tea stories to tell you. I had tea delivered to my table and saw this smiley face at the bottom of my cup, Love it!!!
 I took a book to write while we were waiting to see the movie Everest at VMax, because hubby decided we needed to go 2 hours before the movie started LOL, I wasn't going to sit and twiddle my thumbs
EDITED: The movie Everest was very poignant for me as i had read all the Everest Mountaineering books that have been published so far. The movie Everest was made by IMAX during the worst disaster Everest had had at the time. It was interesting to see all the stuff I had read about like the Hillary step, the Khumbu icefalls and life in the tents at such high altitude. One book I read was about the making of Everest so it was wonderful to see that in real life and know it was all real.
My cup of tea was very interesting, it did not look like that in real life with a white blob in there, I think the light was playing tricks and I only noticed it when I uploaded the photo.

Joining Bluebeard and Elizabeth for T for Tuesdays to see more tea stories around the world.


  1. I love it when the light does funny things to your coffee or tea cup. The smiley face is adorable. I remember taking photos of some tea I made and it looked like the tea was still steeping in the cup, although I knew it couldn't be. I rotated the handle and realized it was just a shadow on the cup!

    I have never heard of Sapota, but now I know NOT to look for undies! Thanks for pointing that out. Also, thanks for sharing your drink and your cute cup with us for T this Tuesday. So glad you were able to join us again, and I hope you enjoyed Everest.

  2. I forgot to mention how much I like the photo of the bridge in your header.

  3. Hello and Happy early T Day! WOW, that bridge is so pretty and cool!! I would love to drive over that. How cute that smiley face is, should get a cup like that for myself. How was the movie, we saw the previews for it and not sure if we should or shouldn't see it??
    We just saw the movie " a walk in the woods" and it was so funny, very good too.
    Thanks for sharing and have a great day!

  4. What a fabulous cup for your tea :-) Love it. Your hubby sounds like mine - gotta be early!! The fruit looks fabulous - what a wonderful colour it is.

  5. I never saw that fruit before, looks good. Love the idea of a smiley at the bottom of the cup! Have a lovely T day, hugs, Valerie

  6. Your rainbow bridge is gorgeous! I love the smiley face in your cup and I'm glad you enjoyed the movie. Your tea does look funny, like it has white foam on it, lol. Wishing you a Happy T Day :D

  7. Fabulous cup.. yes! This fruit is completely new to me!

    Great new header photo!

  8. I've never heard of this kind of fruit. I imagine the kinds of food I've never heard of is more than the kinds I have! I like your smiling cup :)

  9. Hi Bridget, I recognised the bridge in your header straight away... always liked how they changed the coloured lights for different occasions! Loving your tea cup with the smile in the bottom, will be on the look out for one like that as it would be great to greeted with a smile at the end of my tea or coffee.

  10. Happy T-day Bridget, I'm running a little late, in your area.
    LOVE how the light picked out the cream in your tea.......very interesting.
    Thanks for the review of the movie, I've been wanting to go and see it......now more than ever!

  11. What a fun cup to have tea in, served with a smile!
    No, I have never seen that fruit, or heard of it. Very interesting.
    I've not seen the film, but seeing it in 3d must be fabulous! I have read a few Everest books and it is all a bit harrowing really. Was it a good film?
    The bridge photo is beautiful with all the colors.

  12. that tea cup is really cool...always love a happy face! Gorgeous header on you blog too...beautiful bridge!

  13. First thing that struck me was the fabulous Story Bridge! I love that your hubby likes to get to places early - mine too!!! Your tea cup made me smile too! Chrisx
