I write about everything from cooking, baking, cleaning, birds & daisies, my dog, reviewing, living with chronic illness, family stories, and discoveries I've made online. What's the common denominator? Tea. I'm always brewing a cup of tea. My first tastes were diluted with water in my bottle, according to my mom. My favorite brands are Thompson Family teas & Taylors of Harrogate. I often look for deals on Yorkshire gold blend or Thompson's Irish Breakfast at my local British foods store, WISE Choise on Brandt Pike here in Huber Heights, Ohio; Marshall's; and Big Lots. I'm one of those people who steep a cup for about 5-10 minutes. My brother John says he once brewed for 6 hours, so we Mathers must like our tea strong. Hope you enjoy my chats and please leave comments.
