I randomly walked into a tea store called Teavana the other day and ended up walking out with a 3o pound bag of tea goodness. I've been wanting a cast iron Japanese tea pot for some time now and finally took the plunge. And I couldn't resist the cute little cast iron tea cups or tea canisters either. Over the last few days, my husband and I have replaced our morning cups of coffee with delicious coffee-like cups of mate. The tea literally smells like coffee! I'm still baffled, but blissfully zenned out.
