A Cup of Tea                            02.10.2010


My first job as a teen was as a horse groomer.  I desperately pined for horseback lessons and then I met a british woman who ran a farm on the outskirts of our town, in southern Portugal.  An accomplished equestrian rider, she taught me not only to ride but to jump! I, in turn, swept out stalls, brushed down the horses (except for the crazy white stallion) and generally fell in love with everything horse, right down to their smell. One thing I could always count on was a delicious cup of tea before lessons. That was when I became smitten with a good tea, with cream and sugar, thank you. No day is complete without it. Now, if I could only bottle the scent of a horse!

lovely picture amy- and it looks like a yummy cup of tea! i've got my huge stash of pg tips around here.

Want me to send you a box of manure and a curry brush from the Yorks' ranch?? :-) Gotta get there with you this summer...I had no idea you love to ride.

Oh, and have you seen the "Amy's Blend" tea at Caribou? I think of you every time I drink mine!
