So hubby and I made the long trek yesterday from the east (central) part of Canada to the western part to come home for Christmas. I gave my mom an advent calendar for her birthday, so we went got home she brewed DAY 16’s tea for us to enjoy together. I don’t think she brewed it properly, and I may have pointed this out and been called a tea snob….

It was spicy, but I felt like the mint was subdued. I think it was over-steeped and I’m going to try remaking it myself this afternoon.

My love affair with tea began in 2008 when I was living abroad in France. I have since collected teas from all over the world, and enjoy a nice cuppa in the morning. I enjoy mate, black, and herbal tea the best. I am adventuring out a bit into oolong and white teas. Tea is one of my favorite things in the world, and I hope my posts reflect my lighthearted approach to life.

I am a grad student in Ontario where I live with my husband. I study Canadian-American relations and examine Canadian identity through this lens.
