Life is too short to drink mediocre tea. When I was a small girl my (great-grand) Aunt Mary taught me how to drink tea. Black breakfast blend, with a touch of sugar and full cream. No skim milk need apply.
She was Irish and married an Englishman. So I have it on good authority that tea is the best medicine. Crap day, have a cuppa. Glorious day with great company, share a pot and some nibbles. Hot tea is a like a soaking bath for your soul.
Right now my go to tea is Comfort and Joy by The Republic of Tea. It tastes like Christmas. Sitting down with a mug of this tea and a Lebkuchen and I am transported back to December in Nuremberg.
Here’s to fond memories and new traditions. Happy Holidays.
