Hope everyone had a great Christmas! We sure did. We closed the Tea Room and the office early on Christmas Eve. I stopped by the Tea Room on the 24th and saw some of our regular customers and was able to wish them all a Merry Christmas. Jacque was hard at work making last-minute custom gift baskets for several customers and I filled bags of tea as fast as I could. Favorites were Earl Grey, Rooibos Afrikana, Cranberry Orange and Chai. One gentleman came in to request the base for Chai tea and then asked us where he could get the spices. He was overjoyed to hear we had Chai already pre-blended and mixed and he quickly changed his order. Today is a busy day at the Tea Room. It is a rainy, blustery sort of day in New York and what better way to spend it than in the warmth of our Tea Room. All those gift certificates that were purchased...I'm sure we'll see a few of those used today. And an added bonus to the day - it's my little poodle's birthday - Happy Birthday Silver! I have some freeze-dried ice cream treats planned for him.
