Hello my tea loving friends! Yes, it's here again-Teasday! You are all wondering about last week's trivia question and here's the answer: If you overboil your water, what happens is you rapidly boil out the oxygen in the water. The oxygen is a necessary component for enabling the tea to taste as it should when steeping. If you overboil your water, your tea will taste flat. Interesting huh? So only let it boil a few seconds and your done! The winner of last week's trivia, by random number, is......Karen! Thanks for playing! Your tea will be sent out soon.
Have any of you seen the book, Vintage Vavoom? There are some really beautiful vintage finds in there as well as very interesting ways to use your antiques. I really love this book. I read a chapter in it the other day that was talking about tea and I thought it was just so true for us tea lovers. The story was about how everyone should have that "one spot", you know the one you look forward to getting in when you've had a long day. Maybe it's a big comfy chair with the perfect pillow. You know you can go there and sink down in it's luxurious softness and prop your feet up while waiting for your tea kettle to whistle. I imagine it as a cloudy, rainy day and you've got your tea, your comfy spot, and a favorite magazine like Teatime fresh from the mailbox to look at. Yes, these are small comforts, but these are moments I really look forward to. I think because they are so rare that they become so valuable. In a world of ringing phones, crying babies, bills to pay and dinner to cook, it's nice to know in the back of your mind-your comfy spot is waiting for you. Everyone needs a place like that. Drop us a note and tell us about your favorite place to enjoy your tea. So here's next week's trivia question. The winner will be chosen by random number:
When is your preferred Tea time each day?
I look foward to hearing from you. I wish you all a wonderfully relaxing tea time in your perfect spot!
