I think I am becoming a little fanatical about my tea drinking! I used to be quite happy dunking a tea bag into a mug and drinking away - things have changed.
I'm now starting to develop a bit of a ritual for my afternoon/evening reading and tea drinking - so much so that if I can't do it the way I want to things just don't feel quite right. Lucky I'm a mental health professional or I might start to worry about myself!
My ritual now involves a fresh pot of tea - teabags just aren't working for me anymore - and exactly the right type of tea for my mood. I discovered a gorgeous tea shop chain when I was in Melbourne - T2 make the most beautiful blend which is my current addiction, Evening Tea. Thankfully they also have stores in Sydney and they do mail out so I should be right there. I also enjoy purchasing from The Tea Centre which has a store in my local area which helps.
I'm also loving my china cups and am on the lookout for the perfect tea set. My friend Tamara has a beautiful collection of tea pots which helps to inspire my passion.
I really do belong in the world of Bath, High Teas and Jane Austen!
