It’s that time of year when people are either thinking about or currently involved with spring cleaning. Although the weather on Prince Edward Island hasn’t necessarily felt “spring-like” lately, we are always living with the hope of warmer days ahead.
Fresh and organized tea cupboard
In August 2020, my family moved into a new home and one of the things that I was most excited about was having a dedicated tea cupboard and tea making counter (see previous blog post Sold). My whole family drinks tea and it has become a well-used area of our kitchen. Every morning I make a pot of tea for my husband, daughter and I to share and then throughout the day other single cups get made depending on moods and seasons. As one might expect, a tea cupboard for a tea addict, gets a little over-run and unruly over time so I decided that I needed to do a little spring cleaning. Truth be told, the whole house needs a deep spring cleaning, but I am starting small. It is amazing how many different types of tea I can shove into the cupboard. I do love having a variety of teas on hand, but must admit, we have our favourites that get consumed daily and other teas get lost in the clutter. I have always loved starting my day with a strong plain black cup of tea. Normally, that is a Breakfast Blend. Lately though, I have also been making my daughter’s favourite Willow’s Dream and the blend of Cream Earl Grey with the added organic lavender provides such a soothing cup of tea and a wonderful way to start the day.
The problem/delight of having access to so many teas on a daily basis, is that you really do get spoiled. Having high quality, loose-leaf teas at my fingertips is amazing, but it also leads to having an overstocked cupboard.
The chaos of clutter after a LONG winter
Yes, we have 3 different tea strainers & 2 tea pots on the go!
Do you have a tea cupboard/drawer/area that needs some tidying? You never know what you might find hidden in the back corner. Do you need a refresh? I am making room for my favourite iced teas – Watermelon Twist, To Market To Market and Pina Colada.
Summer teas to refresh my cupboard
