Tea time

Most evenings since it's gotten chilly out we like to have decaf hot tea at night. My mom bought us a pretty red tea kettle and it's being used a couple times a day, depending on who wants a hot drink.

I love Twining's tea. First I thought my favorite was English Breakfast tea, but now it's Irish Breakfast tea because it's stronger. And for a normal/large sized mug, I always need two tea bags. Otherwise it tastes too weak to me!

Only 3 days until Christmas!! My husband put up Christmas lights before we came back to Florida. Here they are at sunset time. Christmas lights don't come out very well in pictures!

I don't like my tea too strong so only use one tea bag. Over here we always use a kettle for making tea, love the way you called it a tea kettle. Usually tea would also be made in the teapot, but must admit to just dunking a teabag in a mug these days!!!! Couldn't do that when it was tea leaves. We just use good old PG Tips teabags. However I do sometimes have herbal teas when I feel the need.

Irish Breakfast is the best! I drown mine with milk, though, because I'm weird.
