January - National Hot Tea Month

January is appropriately noted to be National Hot Tea Month,and in celebration of this, I've been enjoying steaming pots of Fortnum & Mason's Royal Blend, a gift from Lemon Verbena Lady. (Thank you Nancy!) She had the good fortune of traveling to England this past year, and I am reaping one of the benefits! The Royal Blend is a good, hearty combination of black teas, definitely typically British. The label states 'stronger tea', and indeed it is, and that's just the way I like it! It is a blend of a sturdy Assam and refreshing Ceylon.

As I sip this tea, I'm reviewing our Calendar of Events for the upcoming year... Susanna has been busy working on our booklet, adding new events, scheduling speakers, creating special activities.... and I see we are planning on celebrating the Royal Wedding in April. Look for some fun teas, a special Wedding Gown program, and all the pomp and circumstance associated with this exciting second generation fairy tale. Looks like several gala celebrations will be taking place at Sweet Remembrances too. Details should be forthcoming over the next few weeks.

Fortnum & Mason's Royal Blend sounds like my kind of tea and what a lovely teapot too. Looks like you have a lot of great events planned for 2011.

How fun, had no idea it was hot tea month, but it sure seems to be the theme around my home this month. :)
