Whittard's = Love
I am so excited right now. *g* As some of you probably know I am totally in love with tea. I have lots of tea at home and work and am always on the lookout for new teas to try. One of my favorite tea stores is Whittard's in the UK. It's a big chain that has stores all over Great Britain. So whenever we are in England I always make it a point to plan a visit to a Whittard's store so I can stock up on more tea. :)
I was running low on my teabags (I use loose tea at home and teabags at work) so one of my friends, Nicola, in England mailed me some tea from Whittard's. So at some point next week I should receive a package with 6 boxes of tea. Yay. :)
And if that wasn't exciting enough, I just checked the Whittard's website and saw that the store in Boston is now open. It's their first store in the US. They also have a store in San Diego now and are opening a couple more. So exciting. :) Guess where we are going for a daytrip in the spring ? Yes, Boston. :)
Not too much else new I suppose. The week went by fairly fast. Had a new employee starting on Monday who seems to have settled in very well. Very glad about that. Other than that it's the usual stuff at work. Went to another German meet-up in West Hartford, CT on Thursday which was fun.
This weekend has been a pretty lazy and relaxing one. It was pouring all day yesterday so the perfect day to stay home, relax, drink tea and write letters. Today it's sunny but very windy and cool. So another good day to stay home. Been catching up on some things around the house.
Mail update. Since my last update letters went out to: Jessica/DE and Becki/MI. A letter is going out tomorrow to: Lotte/Denmark. Received letters from/still owe replies to: Tizz/Denmark and Caroline/Scotland.

I really enjoy a good cuppa tea. When I lived in Scotland, I guess that I became a tea snob. Around here, I hesitate to order a cup of tea for fear that they'll bring out a cup of hot water with a tea bag on the side. I like my tea steeped properly.
Enjoy your new teas!!!
