Morning Tea Routine - A Little Taste of Home

Posted by on 20 September 2011

Joel and I are not coffee drinkers usually. We do have a morning cup of tea - every morning. It's our daily morning routine. It was reinforced in 2005 when we went to Ireland and had Irish breakfast tea every morning. Actually throughout the day. Since we've come to Minnesota I'm finding I want tea throughout the day as well. It doesn't seem to keep me up at night; so why not?

When we started traveling, we kept a few things to travel with. Included was our small blue teapot and our two favorite mugs for tea. The teapot is just the right size to make our two mugs of tea every morning. So wherever we go, we hope to find a tea kettle. Or at least a saucepan to heat water in. Then we find our tea. We used to have a favorite India store back in California where we could get bulk tea fairly inexpensively. Not only is that not convenient any more, we did get a bit tired of it.

Currently we're drinking Tazo Awake tea. It's a bit more expensive though. We're always looking for a good robust tea to drink that's not too expensive.

So no matter where we are, we have a little taste of home. We can feel right at home every morning drinking our mugs of tea and having our morning chat as is our routine.

What morning routine do you have? When you travel is there something you bring along to make you feel at home and in a routine?

    That photo makes me look forward to Ireland, and home.

    My pillow.

    Joel, Ireland and home ... why wait?

  3. Sue L Canfield

    We take our pillows with us as well. All 3 of us have our own pillows and usually use them even if pillows are provided by our hosts.

    Not waiting for Ireland so much as preparing, albeit slowly. A few things to put in order here before we could leave, but I'm beginning the research already. It's an emotional issue for many reasons, so I'm not taking my usual "leaping from the airplane with a silkworm instead of a parachute" tactic.

    Love Love Love your travel blog. Wow if I had the guts, or permission (family etc) I would set out too... Best Wishes and keep writing!!!

    Karen, you were in the back of my mind when I was writing Permission Granted. Check out the website here: http://permissiongranted.joeldcanfield.com/ and consider getting a copy of the book, eh? You can find a way to travel, maybe not full time, but far more than most folks think possible.
