No, I’m not a mother, but even those of us who are not of that class of honored women can enjoy the lovely items that fill store shelves this time of year. Having a strong interest in tea, I was naturally attracted when, at the local Barnes and Noble, helpful salesperson Caroline showed me a display of some gorgeous tea items just for moms, all in a matching butterfly design.
Once home, I immediately took the mug, lid and infuser basket out of the sturdy matching box and cleaned them lightly. They were then ready for great tea adventures to come, with the mug lid keeping the heat in and thus serving both to help the tea steep and maintain its warmth after steeping between sips. All in all, a most lovely and worthwhile purchase!
