New Year, More Tea.

“A cup of tea would restore my normality.” -Douglas Adams

Greetings dear readers! I hope you all enjoyed the New Year holidays in your own way. Though some people may say they dislike things like New Year resolutions and the whole “new year, new you” philosophy, it is undeniable that the beginning of a new year heralds in feelings of hope and a desire to improve in different ways.

A Dream

Dreams are like tea. Spend time working on them like you do on making a good cup of tea, and see them come to life.

Greetings fellow teatotalers,

While many people might opt for wine while in a town like that, I of course went for tea. A dear friend and I had planned before the trip that we would have a little tea evening whilst there and that is just what we did. Continue reading

For Those Pensive Evenings

Anybody can be Sherlock with a cup of tea and John.

Hello dear reader, I may have been gone long, but I haven’t been idle. One of my closest friends gifted me a variety of Turkish teas from Lipton. A couple of herbal teas and fruit teas and some plain black tea. Over time I shall be sampling all of them and sharing my views with you. But for now, we shall tackle the Sage tea. Continue reading
