I love a good old fashioned cup of tea in the afternoon. This soothing habit began back in college when I lived in London for a year and worked for a Member of Parliament. Every day at 4:00pm, the MP and his staff would sit in his office and have tea with British or shortbread cookies. Obviously, those 20 minutes became my favorite part of my time in England.
Although I don't sit and sip every afternoon now, I love the idea and try my best to make time. If you are in the mood for a change this fall, stop by POSH on Thursday afternoons from 2:00-4:00pm for a cup of tea. In the meantime, I've attached a tea making tutorial video from the Wall Street Journal. Enjoy!
