Hi, Kate!!
Drinking tea is very important part of my life..It's much deeper and more than a taste of tea. However, I drink asian tea and i only know our tea traditions. lately, i am so fascinated by British tea history and their traditional afternoon tea ceremony and wide range of black teas.

I love reading your tea postings!!!
All those photos are just loverly!!! Yes!"Loverly!!!
Thank you, Kate! for sharing your wonderful experience!
