Oh how this post speaks to me! From growing up with sweet tea, to living abroad in many countries and adopting our twins from Japan, tea has always been a central part of my life. The friendships and personal connections I’ve shared over a cup of tea near and far are priceless. Thank you for this inspiration and have a lovely day.

XOXO, Amy @ Jeans and a Tea
