C.S. Lewis lovers, doesn’t the lion on the box remind you of Aslan? (You can never get a book long enough or a cup of tea large enough to suit me.)

My cups of tea at Shabby House are numbered. Hallelujah and Jehovah Jireh (with a little bit of the hora thrown in), we have a house waiting for us. Modest and humble, but OURS. Keys should be in our hand tomorrow and moving process should take about a week. I’m finally letting myself believe it and PACKED the loose tea filter.

So I’m down to whatever I can drink out of a bag, and this crumpled box looked like it needed me.

Vanilla Comoro fans, this is really, really close on the super vanilla pastry-like sweetness; just a rooibos base instead of the black. Great for tea and cookie break on a raw, windy afternoon.

Sounds like you are having a pretty good day youself! Conrats on the house. Do yourself a favor and move the tea stuff yourself. We spent years looking for some of our stuff when we got our house. Family moved us. Gotta love them but sure would have liked a little more organization.

Fluorescent VIP stickers already on the box :)

Hooray! Is this the house you looked at that felt like home on the first visit, or did you choose another? I am excited for you!

It’s the felt-like-home one. Told several friends this last week, waiting to make The Key Appointment, I’ve been so impatient and antsy I about gnawed my own arm off to the shoulder :)

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
