Happy New Year!

Joe and I are looking forward to our post-holiday tea-tox program.

I went to Teavana the other day and bought us each a beautiful ceramic mug (Joe’s has a dragonfly on it, mine has a lotus flower) and some fresh loose tea. They’ve got separate pieces that actually hold the tea and are easily removeable when the tea is done steeping and a cover which doubles as a rest for the steeper. I’m sure there are official names for all these things, but I don’t have time to learn them right now. The tea itself is beyond delicious! There were literally dozens of different varieties of tea, so I am sure I’ll be back at the store soon to try some more.
