2012 Year in Review

I entered the world of blogging on January 24, 2012, and this is my 236th post. 

To recap my first year of blogging, I took the most read posts from each month.  It's been fun to look back at the tea experiences I wrote about.

A heartfelt thanks to all who visited my blog over the past 12 months, and a special thanks to those who  became a follower.  If you took the time to leave a comment, please know it was greatly appreciated.  I look forward to the new tea experiences the relevant tea leaf will provide in 2013.

May God's peace and blessings be yours in 2013!
