I am not sure why, but I believe the majority of my crafty friends are also quite dedicated tea fanciers.
I love my tea. I have a giant teacup & saucer I use several times a day.
I live in a very small town with only a few cafes, but they all use “town water” to make their tea. It tastes dreadful. Took me a while to figure out it was the water, as we are on tank water out here. I did not buy tea in town for a very long while.
Then, a tea house opened up! JOY! I finally had somewhere to go to drink yummy tea! And not just plain old tea either. I have tasted nearly all of the many varieties now. My favourites are Oolong, orange pekoe & chili tea. The chili is served with smarties (a chocolate candy) which makes your mouth go WOW. It somehow completes the taste sensation. A tip though – don’t let that one stew too long or you will be in chilli hell. I learnt that after I chatted too long one day. Oops!

Do you love a particular tea? I’d love to hear your loves as I might find a new one too!
