Adjust to the Seasonal Time Change with Tea

Getting ready to set our clocks back for one hour. It’s that seasonal time change we undergo twice a year. If you’re like my humans, it can take a few days to adjust so that you don’t automatically wake up an hour earlier than you should (your internal clock will say it’s 7 a.m. while your clock now reads 6 a.m.) or get sleepy an hour earlier than your usual bedtime (the clock will say 10 p.m., but your body will say it’s 11 p.m.). Plus, those of you used to having your Elevenses Tea Time (at 11 a.m.) and your Afternoon Tea (at 4 p.m.) will find yourselves wanting tea at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. respectively. Tea can definitely help you make this adjustment to the seasonal time change, though. This little teapot will show you how. Continue reading Adjust to the Seasonal Time Change with Tea

Christopher Columbus and Tea

Note: Every year I like to move this up in the post listing to be sure it stays fresh.

Right on cue, about two weeks before the official Columbus Day here in the U.S., the call to replace that day with “Indigenous Peoples Day” rose loud and clear. While this site does its best to refrain from anything even slightly political, being of partial “indigenous” ancestry, we thought a few words here were in order. And of course, since this site is focused on tea and all things related, we had to mention a word or two on that side of things as well. Cheers and happy reading.

When you see the words “Tea Company” in a company’s name, you naturally assume that they primarily sell tea. Right? Well, it turns out that they may have started that way but quickly expanded to other foods, beverages, etc. In fact, a couple of them grew into nationwide chains. Let this little teapot introduce you. TOOOT! Continue reading Companies That Started as Tea Sellers

Tea and Chrysanthemums

Awhile back my ‘she’ human wrote a whole slew of poems about tea and other things such as chrysanthemums. These wonderful flowering plants are particular favorites, especially during Autumn, for inspiring her inner Muse. And they go nice with tea time! Your little teapot guide to all things tea (me!) will show you how. TOOOT! Continue reading Tea and Chrysanthemums

Little Yellow Teapot Ponders: The Chemistry of Tea

The chemistry of tea can be quite a mystery but also very important to your enjoyment of this fine beverage. Awhile ago, we posted about tea and caffeine (one of the chemicals occurring naturally in tea – see article here). But there are more things to consider, especially if you are trying to assess the benefits of tea to your health. This little teapot set out to find out more, sort through it, and present some clear facts to you. I failed, dear tea loving humans, mainly due to how convoluted, obscured, and contradictory a lot of that info is. Plus my desire never to lead you astray. TOOOT! Continue reading Little Yellow Teapot Ponders: The Chemistry of Tea
