can I get you a cuppa tea?
I have mentioned previously that winter weather makes me want to drink tea every night. It really does. I love coffee and have a cup every single morning and if I am near a Starbucks, I have to get something, since the closest one is an hour from here. When I visit my daughter in Florida, I visit Starbucks just about every day.
When winter rolls around, my favorite way to get the evening chill out of my bones is a nice hot cup of Twinings Decaf English Breakfast or Irish Breakfast tea, double brewed with two tea bags per cup! I have also used a tea pot lately when more than myself is wanting a warmer upper, which prompted me to crochet a tea cozy. It really worked at keeping the pot warmer longer.
I have noticed that in so many movies and tv shows, people who are stressed out are offered a cup by an encouraging friend or family member. When I think of people sitting by a fire to warm up they have a tea cup in their hands.
Sometimes I think about how nice it would be to meet some of you and have a cup of tea together! I guess when we read and comment on each others thoughts, many of us have a nice cup of something in our hands, so a virtual time of "tea" is taking place!
Hope you are all staying warm and cozy during this long, cold winter, don't fear, spring is on its way! In the meantime, pour yourself a cup, it can work wonders!
