Fighting Destiny -- no, I haven't heard of that tearoom, but shall certainly check it out. Thank you so much for sharing!
Chip -- I heartily agree. I have found that tea drinkers tend to be enigmatic souls. Perhaps because tea encapsulates the Ying and Yang...both calming and stimulating...and many of us who enjoy the delights of tea tend to embrace that duality, and that sense of spirituality. Enigmatic, indeed.
LOL, Fuk....the red font was my feeble attempt at New Year's Day frivolity...and it matches the color of my eyes after my New Year's Eve outing last night.
Auntie -- yes, very cold here today and supposed to be below zero tonight....brrrrr. The tea books I have are: "Having Tea: Recipes and Table Settings" (gorgeous pictures), "The Book of Afternoon Tea," "Tea and Sympathy" (because it reminds me of my visit to England), and I'm currently reading "Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace . . . One School at a Time." My plan is to begin reading books now that actually contain information on tea itself, rather than the delights of serving it.
Ed -- Yes, your no man's land description indicates you have, indeed, been to Nebraska, lol.
Have a good New Year's Day, one and all.
