Gardening, travel, cooking, handmades, and the life of a thirtysomething.

I fell in love with English tea when I studied in London for 3 1/2 months in 2004. I mean, really fell in love. Before I went to the U.K., I did not drink much black tea, and had never (never!) had milk in my tea. But I was quickly converted, as my English host family on Batchworth Lane (now you know where my blog URL comes from!) kept a big tin of PG Tips on the kitchen counter at all times-- it became standard fare for me. I usually drink several cups a day, but had never owned a teapot until a few weeks ago. We Americans have a habit of just using teabags and brewing one cup of tea at a time. Astounded at the difference in flavor when the tea has been steeped in a pot, I finally decided it was time.
Sturdy and green, like most things I enjoy!
PG Tips or Darjeeling with sugar and milk, it's my best form of comfort food/drink. I have a feeling this is true for many others as well. Something about tea....
