Snowy morning, fire blazing, and tea waiting! The starter tea for today is Irish Breakfast. This is the youngest daughter’s favorite, next to Golden Monkey by Harney and Sons. She has tried other IB teas but finds them a bit too strong. With milk and sugar, this one is just right. Round and a little bit fruity, without the “bite” than some IB’s have. A lovely tea, this one is a little milder than the one by Harney and Sons, my all-time favorite tea company.

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…
