I have been drinking this nearly every morning as of late.
At first it was partly due to the fact it was in the front and easy to grab with my one arm.
I recently fell and tore some muscles and pulled some tendons in my left arm.
You see, I have been banned from farmwork (by my husband) and although there is some projects I have been wanting to do around the house…painting the spare bedroom or cleaning out that scary closet, don’t sound like good things to try to attempt with one arm either.
SO! I have been catching up on my reading.
I read Below Stairs by Margaret Powell (accompanied by this tea, which made me feel luxurious when she would explain the watered down tea her family could afford) after reading the book, that led me to watching Upstairs, Downstairs (I had seen some episodes growing up, but not all) which led me to watch the 2010 version, which then led Hulu to recommend Wives and Daughters.
As you can see, Queen Catherine tea is a very good choice to be drinking during all of this.
I love its gentle briskness.
I hear the tea timer calling, gonna grab my cuppa and sit down and push play.

Enjoy your “break” and catching up on some good books and tea! I hope your arm heals quickly.

Not coveting your injury….but the opportunity to read, drink tea, watch videos….yum!

Hesper June

Oh, yes! Its been lovely! I was trying to remember the last time I did something so indulgent, and I believe it was back when I was in my teens and had the chicken pox’s (the 2nd time I had them, mind you!) and watched all of Anne of Green Gables:)
I am currently trying to decide which to start next, Cranford or North and South.
What a delightful conundrum!

Profile

Bio

A Farmer’s Wife who drinks her tea to forget the din of the world.
Love all tea, from black to herbal concoctions.
Usually start my day with black tea and then move on to Oolong or Green in the afternoon, then finish the day with a tisane.
Loose Leaf teas are my preference, I say “Free the Leaves!” :)
When I am not drinking tea, I enjoy knitting, baking, reading, playing with one of our rescue animals or working along side my husband on our farm.

My rating system is rather relaxed:
50’s or under- Um, is this tea or did I get this from the slop bucket?
60’s- Not really my thing, certainly will not be purchasing again.
70’s- I will give this tea a few more tries to see if it grows on me , right now it is okay but not thrilling me.
80’s- Like this tea a lot. It might be a tea that I have to be in a certain mood for and therefore not a daily drinker, but try to have on hand for those “moods”
90’s and higher- ADORE! Will never be without!

I most always drink my tea plain.
No sweeteners or milk/cream.
