I love tea. Wally world, was out of Great Value decaf (I am a serious light weight when it comes to caffeine) black tea. So I looked for the next cheapest thing, and Tetly was it. I love the little round pillow. It doesn't hit my tea button, its a close 2nd (or 3rd- still searching for a good decaf black). Drinking tea for me is mostly about capturing a flavor memory. I have two that are my favorite. Black tea because my Grma Lois drank black tea, and raspberry tea because it reminds me of Grma Brown (here).
On to the mug. I love simple and pretty. I like old and worn (what my kids call dead people junk). The contemporary mug (Jon's Christmas gift from J.J.'s girlfriend) is not me. But I like it. I like the feel of it in my hands, on my lips, and the way it holds the heat. For now I will console myself with its color, black and raspberry.
