Tea is maybe the drink I associate in my mind with ballerinas and tea in the afternoon with my gran when I was little. I am mostly a coffee drinker though once in a while I want a cup of tea and a cookie and no one is going to make me feel bad about it.
For a girl that barely drinks tea, I find it a little funny that I have three teapots and they are mostly novelty or a little kitsch and cool, if you will. The Mr and my mom managed to give me a teapot each for a present a few years ago, or maybe a year ago and both of them are a little more novelty but at the same time I absolutely love them and will gladly serve tea in them if given half a chance.
One of the tea companies I really am enjoying lately is the Tony glass tea's which is a South African product and their tea is seriously becoming a cult product like 5 roses tea, is the only normal tea you will find in my grans house. The Tony Glass teas come in a wide variety and you can get gift boxes of these teas. The other thing to remember is Tony Glass makes iced tea as well and those are nommy.
I am contemplating switching over to drinking tea more often because honestly once in a while the taste of coffee bores me.
