Wishing all my tea friends in Canada a Happy Thanksgiving!
God's blessings to all!
And to all my American tea friends, Happy Columbus Day! I bought the Christopher Columbus teapot at an estate sale a few years ago.
I still remember the grade school song I learned in music class, "In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue, hurrah! hurrah!"
It's been said America wouldn't have been discovered by Christopher Columbus if it weren't for tea. King Ferdinand II and Queen Isabella had hopes of establishing a trade route to the East Indies for tea and spices and sent Columbus to explore it. He sailed westward and discovered the Americas instead!
On the way to my son's house last week, I stopped to take the photo below.
