I am big on afternoon tea, year round, but in the winter, I get even more into it. I don’t mean high tea with cookies and all that…I mean a nice loose leaf tea which requires some quasi-ceremony. It breaks up the weekend afternoon, and is a ritual we all look forward to. I make some kind of herbal tea for our daughter, and always something black for me (my favorite is this one).This Christmas, my husband gave me this tea infuser, which I’m really excited to use when it’s just me drinking. And I’m in love with our Bodum glass tea pot when we are at least two. I can’t seem to find the same warmer as we have, but this warmer they offer now is pretty nice.
