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!


  1. It was indeed a very tea-filled year! Looking forward to reading about more tea adventures in 2015.

  2. What an amazing variety of tea time adventures! I'm happy to have been included in your travels this year! Wishing you another full year of tea time experiences!

  3. You definitely have the most rich and exciting "tea life" of anyone I know! Thanks for sharing all your adventures, and I look forward to more in years to come!
