It’s the little things.
Right now, my favorite little thing is a steaming mug of tea on the back porch of Little House in the Rockies. It’s an absolutely beautiful day here, but a bit on the nippy side.
Another wonderful little thing is the tea cozy (or in British English, tea cosy). The British have gotten a lot of things right in this world, from the Magna Carta to the tea cozy. There are many others more qualified to expound upon the importance of the Magna Carta, but I think I can be an expert about the tea cozy. It not only keeps your tea pot hot longer, it also gives you a warm, comfy, safe feeling.
If your tea pot has a special little blankie, how can anything be wrong in your world? Maybe the world needs more tea cozies.
I’ve been reading up on how to make tea, and I really like this post from Anglonerd: click here. The #4 entry, Douglas Adams’ treatise on tea, is my favorite. I should take this time to confess that I, myself, am an Anglonerd. Or a nicer way to put it is Anglophile.
I’m drinking TAZO Vanilla Apricot White tea, which is described this way on their web site:
“New white tea buds in the splendor of youth swing from the branch of an apricot tree, giggling delicately in the sweet-fruited air. Tahitian vanilla dances and twirls in creamy intoxication.”
Wow! What a fun job it must be to write these descriptions.
