I enjoy tea, now that the snow is blowing, and the doors and windows are closed. Not because I enjoy tea, but I enjoy the ritual. And it doesn't have to involve anyone else, nice when it does, but me.
And do you know what makes a great cup of tea experience? A china cup. And those I have. I have inherited many, and they sit proudly in the china cabinet waiting for the day that I will choose that one. Sometimes, once it gets selected, it stays the selectee for many weeks, but I'm going to try to consciously give them all a chance. I have some of them packed away in the shed, I have so many.
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee wrote about tea time on November 22 (my full-blood Scotch-Irish father's birthday, which certainly has something to do with my tea habits) and I was amazed that she had 655 comments on that particular blog. 655 !!! Who gets read 655 times on one post?
Time for tea: Chai, soy, agave... What's your combination?
