Share your favorite hot tea memories with me. Who introduced you to hot tea?

I started drinking tea when I was about 6 years old. My dad was born in England and grew up with a British mother, so it was hard-wired into him. He would make my sister and I a cup of tea every morning with breakfast. Albeit it was probably more milk and sugar then, but we grew up on it. When I was little I had a tea set with cups, saucers, a tea pot, a milk jug, and even a cookie plate. I used to lay a blanket out on the floor and have a tea party with my stuffed animals.

Since then I’ve had at least a cup of tea a day, if not three or four. I have a cup of tea in the morning with breakfast, and another in the afternoon, and often one when I head to bed with my book. Maybe I have a problem? Have you heard of any tea addict support groups?

I was heartily accepted by my boyfriend’s family by my “yes please” to the offer of tea. Hahah. My boyfriend also knows me well enough to offer me a cup of tea every so often, and when we lived together for a few months he used to wake me up by bringing me tea in bed…. then yelling at me that it was getting cold when I fell back asleep!
