Some mornings, even with the neglect my back yard has endured lately, it can seem pretty close to heaven. This was one of those mornings, perfect for Assam in the cup, fit for mellow contemplation.

The power of tea is to heal, to soothe, to comfort, to relax or sometimes to give you a swift kick in the posterior to get you moving on cold or sluggish days, iced it’s the perfect soother on hot days.  Tea can be the most frugal of drinks or insanely extravagant. It is at once very ancient and the most modern and chic of drinks. Hmm, I think it’s time for a cup.

Pull up a chair and join me, won’t you?


These are some of the tea cups from my Occupied Japan collection.
