Six Tea Shades of Grey


It’s been a while since I’ve shown you a tea stash post!

A Well-Deserved Bath!

Teamed with a cup of Twinings Rose Garden tea and the second book in the Temeraire series, Throne of Jade, I had a wonderfully relaxing hour completely free of all exam stress!

Just a short post today, but I have plenty coming up in the next few days, so don’t worry, I am back!
