My girls wanted to have tea today and since I am working with a neighbor’s dog, trying to train her while he is all laid up with a broken foot that wouldn’t heal, I told them to prepare everything and I would join them when I got back. Youngest made a pot of this, as it is one of her favorites. Middle daughter fixed a plate of chocolate covered cream puffs to cool me since I had been outside trying to stop a sixty pound dog made of solid muscle from pulling on her leash! Very thoughtful…so I ate several! The tea is smoky but sweet, and has a lot of body. It is smooth and almost creamy or chewy. I haven’t ordered from Upton yet, but I will, and when I do this will be on the order.

So is the dog how the friends foot got broken?

Oh, no! Haha! He was at the gym, boxing and doing calisthenics and when he stepped back up to the bag the bone snapped. He hasn’t been able to handle the dog because of his cast, though, so we send our puppy over to tire her out, and we have kept her at our house for a few days to give him a rest! She has nearly broken the rest of us, though! She is really sweet, just very strong and not trained yet.

@ashmanra wow. That’s very considerate of you, helping a hurt neighbor with his dog. Kudos!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
