A Delightful Tea Calendar

It’s funny how you look forward to seeing how everyday little pleasures will unfold on your birthday.  I wondered what little bit of tea information would come to light today on my tea calendar and I wasn’t disappointed.  Today I learned something new about tea.


Here’s the entry for April 9:

In 1700s London, tea was the major beverage served in coffee houses.  Exclusively for men, these coffee houses were termed “penny universities”.  For a penny, a man could buy a pot of tea and a newspaper while engaging in lively conversations with other men who shared his interests.

This is a lovely little calendar with watercolor paintings of teapots and cups on each page.  Makes me want to find my old watercolor paints and brushes and dabble in painting again.  I love how there is a strong magnetic back and it can be attached to my fridge – very convenient.  I’ll certainly be looking for the 2010 version as soon as next years calendars hit the stores.
