kittyphotowelcome Welcome!

I am purposefully seeking ways to add a little more peace, joy and fun in my life; that's why I started this tea story.

Currently I am searching for a new supplier for my tea. So I’m visiting websites and ordering different blends every month. I’ll be posting about my finds along with my visits to tea rooms.

It’s always the perfect time for a cup of tea. Won’t you join me?

The Log Cabin Tea Company

Sometimes you have wonderful discoveries in unexpected places.  We had a just such an experience at the Log Cabin Tea Company located in Hartselle, Alabama. This, ladies and gentlemen, is a stroke of genius.  A tea tasting bar. Right by the front door you have all these jars set up and you can take a… Continue Reading

MaryAnn’s Tea Room

Located in the Central West End of St. Louis is the posh and slightly kitschy MaryAnn’s Tea Room.  From the street you walk in through a little boutique which is the perfect place for the fashionista in you to stop and shop!  To get to the tea room, walk in and through the shop all the way to the back.… Continue Reading

The Sweetest Things Tea Room

It may not be easy to find The Sweetest Things Tea Room but it’s worth it.  Ignore what your GPS says.  Ignore what their Facebook page says.  They moved at the end of 2016 and the internet doesn’t seem to know it just yet and two of the three of us ended up at their… Continue Reading

Shineworthy Tea

Sometimes there isn’t really much to get excited about in January.  You’re in the post-holiday slump and the days have turned cold, dreary, and dank.  That makes it the perfect time to grab some friends and go for some comforting warmth and togetherness over some hot tea.  Which is exactly what we did. We went… Continue Reading

Pipers Tea and Coffee

I pass by Paducah, KY on occasion and last time through, with the help of Mr. Google, I found a groovy little tea room called Pipers Tea and Coffee. It’s just a short hop from the interstate, located in an historic building that was once the Paducah Coca-Cola bottling plant.  Reportedly, this is an area… Continue Reading

Tea Leaves & Thyme

I recently had the pleasure of visiting a tea room in historic Woodstock, GA which is a bit north of Atlanta, called Tea Leaves and Thyme. They are on Main Street in this cozy house turned restaurant. These are the first tables you see right by the windows on the front porch. And here’s a… Continue Reading

The Steeping Room

Austin is known for its hipness and The Steeping Room was in keeping with the vibrant aura surrounding Austin. There are two locations.  We visited the one in the Domain, a high-end outdoor shopping center in northwest Austin. You are greeted by this mural over the cash register as you walk in the front door.  I like… Continue Reading

The Chocolate Biscuit

 It’s fun to try out new tea rooms and go have adventures in tea!  However, you do take your chances anytime you try a new place – and that’s part of the fun – but this was one of those times when our adventure went a little cattywampus. I went to Birmingham, Alabama recently and… Continue Reading

Touring the U.K. Drinking Tea All the Way

It’s taken me 3 months to chronicle our one-week vacation from Edinburgh to London.  Thank you for letting me share my pilgrimage to the land of tea.  For a tea lover like me it was the trip of a lifetime!  I’ll summarize it here but click on the links if you’d like to read more… Continue Reading

Breakfast at the Ritz in London

Not only did we have afternoon tea at the Ritz in London, we also had breakfast there. We ate at the Ritz Restaurant which is an entirely different room than the Palm Court where we had afternoon tea – and – it was an entirely different experience.  Click here to compare and contrast. The quiet… Continue Reading
