Tea Tidbits

I've been accumulating a number of tea-related tidbits to share with you. Here goes:

1 - Tea Quotes: I've added several new tea quotes to my Serendipity Teas site - see the quote page. Enjoy! My current favorite is this: "There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea." - Bernard-Paul Heroux

2 - Cooking with Tea: Check out these incredible recipes from Is My Blog Burning?

(Thanks to Morning Coffee and Afternoon Tea and Teaswap for alerting us to these recipes!)

3 - For a Laugh: Read a Brit's review of the tea kettle situation in the US. http://www.nicecupofteaandasitdown.com/ - Go to the right column and scroll down to the article under Your Feedback by Robert Landon. It's fun. Quite! I especially love the perspective on too-good water pressure and the "water splatter problem."

4 - Fashionable Tea: The fall edition of Town & Country Travel reports that London is experiencing an afternoon tea revival. Powerhouse restaurants are now packed all day long. One restaurant makes pastries inspired by the latest fashion collections.

Steph,

Thanks for the info on Logan's blog. It has been a pain for everybody to have to set up their own blog page to be able to leave a comment. I hope he reads your comment and understands how to make the change. He hasn't had access to the Internet yet. Hopefully, he'll be able to get on there soon.
