What Is Straight From The Leaf?

Straight From The Leaf
is a literary outpouring from my head to yours about tea as a lifestyle and not merely a hot beverage.

In other words, I don’t read tea leaves. I DRINK TEA leaves — and tisanes.

(Yes, there is a difference.)

That’s much better. Cups up! #DrinkTea

  1. Great portrait! Rather unique, if I do say so myself. 🙂

    I don’t think I’ve commented on your blog before (or I might have and have since forgotten), but I always look forward to your pictures, Verna.
