Love’s Labours {Day} {Not Exactly} Lost

It is Labor Day Weekend in the USA, starting, hmm, right now. It seems odd to me to call a weekend by a single day’s name, but this is America, where such Stuff is normal. So we have arrived at the official, if not the seasonal, End of Summer. Has your Summer gone as you hoped? We certainly hope so. If not, put the kettle on and we’ll all have tea — whether or not your name is Polly — because Tea Helps.

Yes! Tea does help — if you feel blue, or perhaps green, even if you are in the pink, tea can wash your insides with deliciousness and bring unto you a sense of harmony. Leaves in water! Endless possibility! It never ceases to amaze.

Have a beautiful weekend!

A New Beginning

It is time for a new beginning, say we, and this is it: welcome to the new home of The Tea Drinker Magazine online, where Trixie and Dustin will once again pour forth their proprietary blend of words and images for your pleasure and amusement {insert sounds of engines and wheels churning, speed increasing, momentum rising}.

Why move from the lovely and amazing (and free!) Blogger to the lovely and amazing (and free!) WordPress? Our incessant informal inquiry indicated that this was a Good Idea. More of you, our dearly beloved readers, prefer this platform, so here we are at last to greet you were you want to be. Cheers! Ciao! Aloha!

Dustin is back after a very long set of travels in tea lands near and far, and he will, in due course, start Spouting Off as he used to do. We both have been taking a tremendous amount of tea-stained photographs, which we hope you will enjoy seeing as we post them here for you.

Every change brings exhilaration as well as adjustment… here we are, adjusting exhilaratingly as we infuse enthusiastically, and we are thrilled to be doing this with YOU.

With so much love and gratitude,
xo, Trixie
