I will let you into a little secret. I don't know that much about tea. I drink a lot of it, but it's usually the standard Tetley tea variety, with the occasional bout of peppermint, camomile, green and hibiscus (which I read was very good for women.) But I love going to tea shops, collecting tea cups, and I do drink five or six cups a day. I can't differentiate that much between brands. Chide me if you will, but for me a lot of it is about the packaging. My current favourite for a little dinner party gift is still Teapigs, but as I am participating in Concrete and Honey's 'Bright Week' I thought that these teas from Today was Fun would make for a perfect Tea of the Week.
How to make me happy? Just tie something up in string, and you're almost there. I love the expectancy tea - what a thoughtful gift it would make for one of my many pregnant friends.
So, a bright week ahead. Something to focus the mind on. Look out for at least one 'bright' post every day this week. I hope it will also be literal - we had hailstones and thunder on Saturday - the beginning of British Summertime.
