Here is my first post for the Tea Blog-a-thon! I hope you enjoy this post. To read more of them, click here.
I have been wanting to talk about this for a while so here is my best tea story and it comes from the land of tea and crumpets, England.
I was in England in the summer of 2006 on a scholarship from my University. And while in my favorite place while I was there, the Cotswolds, in a little hamlet called Moreton-in-Marsh, I happened upon a small church which was celebrating it's yearly flower festival.
After viewing all the lovely flowers I found they were selling cups of tea for 50p. I asked for a cup. It was the most heavenly tea I had ever drank. Before this trip, I was not a tea fan, now it is one of my most favorite things in the world.
The very sweet lady, who made that delicious cup of tea, came and talked to me about a quarter of an hour, then offered me a second cup at no charge. How could I possibly say no to that! I ended up spending an hour talking about the Lord, England and America with her and I will never forget what a wonderful hour it was.
