I try to not be too picky about things when I travel. When I am home I have quite a variety and selection of teapots to choose from as you know. But when I travel it is a little bit different. Not every place has the same
obsession idea about brewing tea.
I am definitely not a tea snob. It does not have to be loose tea all of the time. I do use tea bags. I prefer loose tea but I also switch it up a lot and use the Keurig to brew some in a flash. So I think that shows that I am definitely not a purist when it comes to how I brew my tea.
On our recent trip to South Carolina we found ourselves at a lovely crepe place for a late breakfast. We honestly had no idea where this place was and ended up driving a bit but it was worth it. We found Lazy Susan’s Cafe & Creperie at 31 A Market Street in Beaufort. We decided to eat outside at a little bistro table even though it was a little chilly and it was an excellent choice.
I ordered black tea and was thrilled when it arrived. Just look at this lovely set.
It was the perfect set and one that suited me to a tea. “Smile”.
I actually have one of these little small teapots and it resides at Aaron and Erin’s place in Jacksonville. It is my teapot to use when I visit them and I love it. It is the perfect small size for a couple of nice cups and doesn’t take up much room.
I also found that the owners of the place we rented had a love of tea as well. While they did not have a tea pot to use they did provide a lovely tea kettle and two beautiful tea cups. I had plenty of cups of tea out of them during our stay.
I think any tea is fine and however you take it is perfect. Tea with sugar, tea with milk, tea with honey, tea with nothing at all – it’s all good, isn’t it? As a matter of fact all of this talk about tea makes me think I need a cuppa right now.
Tea is wealth itself, because there is nothing that cannot be lost, no problem that will not disappear, no burden that will not float away, between the first sip and the last.
