Anyone for tea?

Here in Japan、 this week we have a five-day weekend, rather glamorously named as Silver Week. It consists of the Saturday/Sunday weekend for those who work week days only, Respect for the Aged day, National day and Autumnal Equinox day. For those lucky enough, the long weekend started on the 19th and lasts until the 23rd.


Unfortunately for me, the long weekend falls just before payday..ahem.. so I’ve been spending my time pottering around at home , catching up with chores.


Contrary to popular opinion, we Brits do not sit down for Afternoon Tea every day, but we do drink endless cups of tea. In IMG_1184fact, did you know that in the UK, a total of 165 million cups of tea are consumed every day!


If, like me, you’re enjoying just relaxing at home during the holidays, why not try one of my favourite teas?


You can find Williamson teas at Kaldi or on Amazon Japan.
