Today I’d like to introduce you to Claire who is guest posting about her tea drinking in a crisis. It’s probably because I’m British, but I have an unwritten rule that no guest should make it more than a couple of steps into my house without being offered a cup of tea or coffee. Having visitors isn’t the only scenario that sends me straight to the kitchen to put the kettle on either. If I’ve got a morning of writing ahead of me, it can’t begin without a mug on the desk. If a friend receives bad news, I’ll offer… View Post

Today I am bringing you another bloggers tea adventures.  This is Sheryl who also has a love for coffee.

In my case, drinking tea with my mum started early – mum always drank tea… View Post

I don’t think I’ve ever actually hide my love of tea at any time.  I’m one of those people who gets out of bed in a morning and goes straight to the kitchen.  First job is switch the kettle on!  I just have to have a huge tea hit to get me going for the day.  By a huge hit I mean a minimum of two mugs of tea in these pretty beauties; Cath Kidston mugs. I adore Cath Kidston and I especially adore the crockery they sell.  Currently my favourite range is the High Gate Rose range because I… View Post
