I love TEA!!!

Maybe it is because I have English blood in me (maternal grandmother, paternal grandfather), but I love tea. Especially fresh brewed loose tea. Even more especially hand-crafted fresh brewed loose tea.

So the other day I got some tea from a fellow Etsyan. Kate at TeaNoir is amazing. First of all, she is really nice. But second of all, she has AMAZING hand-crafted loose leaf tea!

I got some of the Lady in Red blend. It is a rooibos tea with hints of vanilla, cloves, and roses and I have to say it was about the best tea I have ever sipped! I added a little milk and sugar to it and just basked in the beauty of it!

So if you are a tea fan - and I know there are plenty of you out there! - then please, do YOURSELF a favor and check out TeaNoir's shop!

It was an English influence which created my love for tea. So perhaps your English heredity actually has something to do with your love for it as well.

When I was younger My mother vacationed in England one summer. She came back passionate about tea. Her zeal was contagious.

Today my husband and I are snowbound. I slept in as long as I could, but finally went down to the kitchen. I set-up a special tea & toast breakfast, with my favorite linens and teapot and tea cozy (from the new Thompson White Tea Company). When my husband came downstairs, we had a leisurely breakfast, drank tea for an hour, and watched the snow fall. You're in great company.
