How do you store your tea supply?
For a long time mine was on a shelf in the cupboard,
but as it overflowed things would fall to the floor when
the door was opened.
Finally I realized I needed a solution.
This basket works quite well and each time I need
tea I love digging there to find just the right tea for the day.
Loose teabags are in the small basket up above
and larger quantities are in the large basket.
This morning I picked a black tea from that small tin on top.
It came from Betty's, the tearoom in York, England.
Tomorrow I might pick a Darjeeling from Thunderbolt Tea
or a tea from Steven Smith, but then I can see Teavivre represented there too.
The gold bag at the back is one I haven't opened.
It is about 30 years and aging in my basket while it waits for just
the right time to open it.
Oh what fun to have a tea supply of just the right tea for a certain day.
How do you store your tea?
Do you pick your tea for the day according to your mood or the weather?
PS - on a side note, all the binders and folders on the bottom shelf are
recipes torn from magazines and newspapers or shared by friends
over the years. Yes, there are many tea related recipes right there in
Happy weekend, dear friends!
