So, yesterday was a trip to Stratford that involved great theatre but also a lot of money in gas, a pair of shoes I don’t really need, and taking advantage of the rare opportunity to buy this tea even though I really, really don’t need to be paying $18.50 for 100g of tea. But, I have to think it was worth it. The pretty black tin helped me wake up this morning, looking forward to making it to take to work. Unfortunately the lid for the steeping basket of my Breville has gone missing (seriously, how far could it have got?) so I didn’t have it pre-set to be ready for me, and I ended up running late (as per usual) so this suffered a bit from a too-short steeping time. Still a deliciously delicate balance of fruit and floral.

In high school, I participated in an annual golf tournament near Stratford. I always wanted to go there, but never got the opportunity to get there as an adult. I’ve heard the theater is fantastic!

teawing, thanks for the support! I did accept it was worth it with my second cup.

QuiltGuppy, Stratford is wonderful! The theatre festival is really remarkable and there are also a lot of lovely shops. Going there to see a Shakespeare production each year was part of my school’s curriculum and I definitely didn’t appreciate it enough at the time. I saw Jesus Christ Superstar this time and a while after buying the tickets I saw Andrew Lloyd Webber himself on CNN praising this production! Pretty cool. If you ever get another chance do visit. There’s a great tea shop!

Pretty jealous of your Stratford trip, being a canadian theatre gal :D
I have some TO friends so I def want to go to see some of the best theatre in Canada at Stratford some day. [Christopher Plummer stole my heart]!
Now I have a second reason to go, an awesome tea shop! :D

Do! It’s such a nice day trip from Toronto (it’s even nicer to stay the night and see something else the next day, but y’know, budget). The Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake is also great. And there are lovely tea shops there, too. Tea + theatre are just meant to be!

I hope I can one day. We live about midway between Port Huron (Sarnia across the bridge) and Detroit (Windsor across the bridge/tunnel.) If we go, I’ll be on the lookout for some fab tea shops! I’d love to have a weekend there. I’ll have to add it to my wish list.
