The 13 Days of Christmas: tea

Why 13 days? Because that’s how long my kids are out of school!


Today Day 13. I celebrate the end of Christmas vacation with one of the 13 teas on my newly organized tea shelf. Eight of them are gifts from my dad, who purchased them at the Tea Embassy in Austin, Texas.

Thanks to all of you who came along for the ride over the winter break. You helped me stretch.


  1. I think I need to broaden my idea of tea. I tend to stick with the basics!

  2. I like tea. I like the idea of 13 bags of tea organized on a shelf.

    And I like your 13 days of Christmas.

  3. My kids were out of school today for snow. It kind of was stinky because I had to work. So I did a little facetime call with them at lunch time and that cheered me up to see their pale and over media indulged faces. And, BTW, my second order of Taste of San Antonio coffee just shipped. I remembered you said that Taste of Houston is supposed to be good too, so I ordered one of those (I have to order six bags to get the shipping discount–does that defeat the purpose?).

    Missing you. Happy New to you.
