Saturday Morning Tea

This holiday weekend I am in Michigan visiting my parents for a nice relaxing mini-vacation. Today I am enjoying a China Black tea, a full-bodied, earthy brew with hints of smoke and red wine.  I like to first sample the reddish liquor plain but then add milk later on with the second cup to richen its flavor.

A China black tea, with its earthy comfort, is a perfect cup for the first day of September in Michigan where the morning temperature reads a cool 59 degrees.  As I sip my tea, my eyes take in my cache of treasures from The Bead Haven bead store I visited yesterday.  Stay tuned for the full eye candy report when I return home!

    PS – I keep getting pulled back to this photo! I love it! Especially the drop of tea clinging to the teapot spout!
