Snow Day Tea Break

 
Winter finally came to Kentucky. 
It by-passed us last year as we had no snow or snow days from school.
We have already missed 2 days in 2013, one for ice and one for snow.
 
I decided to have a cup of tea during the early afternoon on Friday, and asked
13 year-old AJ if he would like a cup, too.
He replied, "yes, oolong, please." 
I had to smile at that.  How many 13 year-old American boys
are going to ask for a cup of oolong tea while in the middle of a
big computer game battle with his school buddies. 
 
The tea I made for AJ was Harney and Sons Formosa Oolong
See the following information from Harney's website.
