My review included 26 tea adventures in 2014, and one event [Downton Abbey Costume Exhibition at Winterthur Museum]. Amazingly, there were several other teas that I didn't include. It was, indeed, a wonderful, tea-filled year. I hope you've enjoyed reliving them with me. I'm looking forward to several new tea adventures in 2015, and sharing them all with you!
