Oh Christmas Tea, Oh Christmas Tea!

Over the next two weeks despite the rush of final exams I am beginning to plan my Christmas Tea!

Okay, honestly I have been planning this tea and drooling over recipes since early November when I decided I was going to do the tea. The one thing that will be at that tea (even if it makes me break down into a weeping heap on my boyfriend's kitchen floor) will be the Bûche de Noël. I have promised my friend Boxy I would one day make her one. I had the joy of eating one every December with my French Club in high school for our Holiday party made by our local French bakery: La Baguette. I could just order one but where is the fun in that!

More updates to come in between my study breaks over the next two weeks.

PS. I am drinking one of my favorite black teas, Paris Tea from Harney & Sons

Welcome to Tea42

Howdy, this is SarahBee! I am a Okie, avid tea drinker and traveler and I wanted a place to share my discoveries so I created Tea42. Why "42"? Well, I am a huge Douglas Adams fan and since 42 is the meaning of life, the universe, and everything, I imagine that includes tea. I created this blog over a year ago and have yet to post, so during my tea break today I decided to start. The blog posts will be divided into categories of: Tea Travels, Tea Accessories, Tea Time, and Tea Parties (for now).

Look forward to new posts soon!

By the way, I am drinking a white tea with lavender.

Happy Travels,
