Tea and Inspiration

As I sit here enjoying my favorite cuppa, Devonshire English Breakfast Tea, I've noticed a snippet of inspiration to be found on the side of the box.
It reads:
"Far away there, in the sunshine, are my highest aspirations. I cannot reach them; but I can look up, and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead...."
-Louisa May Alcott

Thank you, Celestial Seasonings!

I am such a tea addict! It must be because I'm half English (dad's side). Your Devon tea made me homesick for England, where I lived for two years and did graduate work.

I love Celestial Seasonings and their quotes. Legend has it that Celestial Seasonings was founded by an old Boulder hippie. I'm a graduate of CU, Boulder. I used to love to drink Celestial Seasonings at the Brillig Tea House there when I was a student. Nice memories...thanks!

Love Celestial Seasonings! English Breakfast and Earl Grey are my favorite teas.
I did The Tour of Tea in Colorado years ago. Wow! That Peppermint room nearly knocked me over. lol!

My Dad's side is English, too!
We got here in 1623, when my 14th gen. Grandmother sailed to marry William Bradford, the first Governor of Plymouth Colony,after her husband Edward died at Leiden,Holland. Cool,huh?
I've never been to England {yet!} and Devon is one of the first places I'd love to go.
I love the tea. It's so incredibly favorful!
