‘The very act of preparing and serving tea encourages conversation. The little spaces in time created by teatime rituals call out to be filled with conversation. Even the tea itself–warm and comforting–inspires a feeling of relaxation and trust that fosters shared confidences.’
Emilie Barnes, If Teacups Could Talk
Just beginning your adventure into the world of herbal tea? Or perhaps you’ve already been converted, but are eager to explore new flavours.
If this is you, head on over to If Teacups Could Talk…, a dedicated herbal tea review blog I run with a friend. Forget tea cosies – we’re tea crazy, sampling new teas every week, sometimes even 14 in an evening (yes, really)! We try the good, the gorgeous and the disgusting so you don’t have to, and give suggestions for what time of day and even which season to drink each flavour.
