A (blue) teapot, a book on the (blue) iPod, a pretty blue cup and blue knitting (Milkweed) add up to a bit of blue heaven.
My tea habit has developed over the last ten years or so. It started with ice tea in summer and a few other tasty teas during the winter. Coffee was my drink of choice, but I drank tea when coffee was too much. And then, we had a party at the Beehive Tea Room, visited the Tea Grotto and met TeresaC. She loves tea, talks about tea, and along with the advent of tea houses in Utah, her passion helped to form my tea pallet.
The last time I had a daily cup of coffee was before my surgery. Since then my morning starts with an Assam tea and I drink a variety of teas (mostly green) throughout the day. Only on rare occasions will I have a latte, as my first choice is always tea, brewed at home (or by friends) in a special tea pot or mug. I'm no connoisseur, but I do like good tea and if you're a fan of tea, you may be interested in this article and the book it previews. I'm only a few pages into it, but tea has a very fascinating history…interesting reading when you're sipping a cup of beautiful, flavorful tea.
