Happy Christmas! Today is Christmas with my eldest daughter because she will be in Ireland for Christmas, so we let her open her presents and have her stocking and we are just spending some time together. In addition, we told her about a puppy that was saved from animal control by the no- kill shelter. She has a broken leg and has pins and wires and screws and a plate and they needed a home for her to recover in, and she really wanted to meet the puppy before she leaves so we picked her up tonight! She is resting in front of the fire with her new toy elephant and has eaten voraciously. Apparently someone forgot to tell the little pup that she is badly injured and must rest. If her leg doesn’t heal properly, it will have to be amputated, so we are praying the fix “takes.” Here she is:

I got to open my gift from my daughter’s fiancé and this was it! I know, I know! What a great guy! We decided to have some after supper tonight as a celebratory cup.

I made it in my new Krups which I positively love and we are using several times a day. The base is sooo smooth, the almond flavor is dominant without being overbearing, and it is sweet and light, even refreshing, on the palate. Good gracious, the French really know how to scent and flavor tea!
This is an elegant cup and I shall enjoy every bit of it!

Even my daughter who does not like black tea is drinking it. She likes it!

D’awwwww, puppy!!! You’re lucky your daughter has a tea loving fiancé. Jealous of that Pleine Lune!

What a beautiful lil pup! My boss adopted a dog that was in the same situation, and sadly his leg had to be amputated. The great news is that Grendel is completely fine only having three legs. He is super sweet and even comes to spend the day in the office now and again — he runs everywhere with his three legs and jumps on my lap even! I’m hoping that the setting takes, but even in the worst case scenario, I bet she will rise to the occasion. If only we could all be more like dogs.

I have a little bit of this tea and I’ve been saving it for my Winter Break — just a few more days til ahhhhhhhh!

Puppy is a beauty! My best to her! (And happy holidays to all of you by the way).

I love Pleine Lune! It´s such a staple tea for me. My favorite way to have it (even if I usually like my tea plain) is with honey and a drop of milk – that way is one of the most conforting teas i ever had!

JacquelineM: I am almost holding my breath because this little girl wants to PLAY! She is rather hyper and is supposed to be kept calm with as much movement restriction as possible! And this is how she acts while medicated! Whatever would she be like unmedicated??? :)

cteresa: that sounds delectable! I will try it that way, too!

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…
