Tea and Me | On a Cold October Evening

|| Put the Kettle On can be found here ||
“The cup of tea on arrival at a country house is a thing which, as a rule, I particularly enjoy. I like the crackling logs, the shaded lights, the scent of buttered toast, the general atmosphere of leisured coziness.” P.G. Wodehouse


It’s not normally for me.

Because I prefer my coffee … in a cute mug … hot and fresh and black.

But my consumption was exceeding the proper amount.

When my husband came home and found me floating in a sea of hot, brown deliciousness (again) he asked me to consider the alternative.


Ew, I said. It will have to be filled to the brim with milk, I said. Impossible, I said.

Yesterday’s cup was awful, plum awful. It was too weak, too diluted, too cold. Never again, I said.

And then today came with its cool weather, fresh, homemade cookies, relaxed schedule, and mocked me. I had to find a caffeine free, hot beverage since my coffee consumption had already been had at 10 am — so I gave tea one more try.

And somehow I enjoyed it.

So here’s to my new relationship with tea — may it never overstep the strong memories coffee and I have and may it always be there on cold October days.


Here’s a bit of cheesy/romantic/tea fun … I’ll be sure to try this out on my hottea tonight. 😉

    Frannie, have you thought about trying one of the many different teas? Fruit teas, herbal, green? Like you, I prefer coffee, but I do drink weak tea with honey and no milk occasionally.
