T is for


Tea. Yep. That's where I'm going today.

I know it sounds sorta crazy, but as I contemplated this letter on Sunday I kept coming back to the collection of teas in a great wooden chest that my sister-in-law bestowed upon me for a gift a few years back.

I used to drink a lot of hot tea, but I've gotten out of the practice. This letter and this article were just

Author: Marji Laine

Marji is a recently "graduated" homeschooling mom whose twin girls have blessed her by sticking around the nest for a little longer. She spends her days directing the children’s music program at her church and working with the authors of Write Integrity Press to put out the best possible version of their books. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  1. Hee hee! My youngest dinky twinkie is braver than me, though. At least I used to drink hot tea and don't mind it so much. She's never liked it, but she's a trooper!


  2. You are BRAVE!! tasting all those teas?! Wow. The only tea I drive is a medicinal tea and I do NOT like it. I'd almost rather be sick. LOL. My mom and sister love tea. The smell of it turns my stomach. Go figure. But huge hooray for goofy time with your girls!! THAT would be worth tasting blechie tea. LoL


  3. Oh wow! You are a tea drinker, Loree. My oldest dinkie twinkie liked those combinations, but I wasn't a fan of them. I think I need a little more practice! 🙂


  4. My daughter worked in a tea shop at one time. That's when I learned about teas and their medicinal and health benefits.I've been to a few high teas, and I collect old fancy tea cups and saucers.I'm an Earl Grey with cream drinker in the morning. In the afternoon, I drink a Chai Green tea. Love the spices.


  5. It was fun, Shelley. All of us were laughing. Oh that sounds so nice, Keli! I know there are places that do daily teas as a matter of course, but I think the memories part is the most important one for around here! Thanks for sharing, gals!


  6. I've gone to just one tea, which was hosted by the librarian at my daughter's middle school. This was a mother-daughter event in the school's library where we met to discuss a book we'd all read. The lights were turned down low, the serving table boasted a beautiful display of finger sandwiches and other delicious treats, and the tea flowed freely–as did the conversation. That event is a treasured memory.


  7. Thanks for sharing your tea experience. I enjoyed your commentary on the different varieties. I especially enjoyed that your girls tasted them along with you. How fun!
