Almost that Time of Year: Tea Time

I'm getting antsy about sweater weather! It's been a hot summer, especially with no ac in the my mind has been a wanderin' through thoughts of leggings, fall boots, pumpkins, crunchy leaves, and tea. I LOVE hot tea, but my body can't physically take it unless it's at least 70 degrees or colder. If I tried, my head would get over-heated and I would feel like throwing up (like at yoga this past Tuesday. I have never sweated so much in my life!). Since I can't quench my tea cravings in summer, then I scurry around and store all my lovely tea things in a pile in the cupboard for when I can snuggle cozily inside my home and indulge. Now, I have a number of new loose leaf teas, some old but still good tea bags from last year, a couple happy mugs I like to use, and two infusers. I just bought one of the infusers at an antique store and thought how whimsical it would be to make a collection of them. Here are some neat ones I came across online and am secretly coveting...shhhh....
