Just Plain Fun to Read

In March (2007) I traveled to London, England with a group of tea enthusiasts. I hesitate to say fanatics, but there is a certain amount of truth in that word also. It was an unbelievable experience, memorable to this day, and totally coordinated and organized by Denise of Tea In London. She is, by the way, hosting another trip in March of 2009.
In addition to a collection of souvenirs and memories, a strong friendship and camaraderie developed among the participants. Although we didn't know each other before the trip, we knew we shared a common thread - tea and the bond it creates. Today, we are scattered across the United States, still in touch with each other privately via email, communally via a small yahoo group, and daily via our personal blogs; updating each other about family, sharing accomplishments, or just plain chatting.
My roommate for the trip, Linda, from Kentucky, and author of the Friendship Tea blog, has bestowed a blog award to my sister and I. We graciously acknowledge this recognition (our first blog award!), and we share in passing it on to Denise, who has recently developed her own blog, Uniquely Tea, which happens to be!
