Traveling With Tea




Because GJ and I rarely find good tea when we travel, we take our tea with us. GJ drinks drinks only decaf tea which is not served at a lot of restaurants. When we travel to a cabin or condo with a kitchen, I pack loose leaf tea, an infuser and my favorite bone china mug. I have even been known to take my Brown Betty teapot and my electric tea kettle. However, when we travel by air, as we did on the recent trip to Florida, I am forced to pack less. This trip I took Harney & Sons loose leaf tea in individually wrapped silken sachets as in the photo. These were extremely convenient to use.

While we were in Florida we visited our "snowbird" neighbors from up the street, MG and GG, in their Lakeland, FL home. I introduced MG to afternoon tea a couple of years ago. Her favorite is Harney's Hot Cinnamon Spice.
MG and GG cooked a delicious dinner and breakfast for us during our overnight stay and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Too bad we couldn't have stayed longer! Oh well, back to work and school!

You are introducing me to teas I have never heard of.

What a special overnight visit with friends.

Linda, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who gives serious consideration to "tea and teaware availability" when traveling! And the Harney teabags are a great way to go, plus the packaging is just plain pretty!

Harney's silkened bags are very convenient to travel with. I also take my own tea when I travel.

I recently was introduced to Harney & Sons loose leaf tea in silk sachets. A girl I work with brought some in and gave me a few sachets. Wonderful tea. Really great flavor... rich too.

I take tea bags when I travel. I like coffee, but tea is so much nicer than coffee the whole trip.

Love your blog and learn much. Harney & Sons teas are some of my very favorites but when I travel I rely on The Republic of Tea's "Traveler's Tea Tins" filled with their lovely round tea bags. Because the small flat, round metal tins are such a great size it is easy to carry several in different flavors. When the teapot and infuser have to stay at home it's the only way to go! Blessings, Sharon
