Mrs. Teaist bought this tea for me during a recent trip to Stockholm. She found it at Grace Tea House’s “everything must go” closing down sale. Advertisements

The weather was superb the other day – bright and warm without being overly hot, and even the usual stiff sea breeze had died down to manageable levels.
My womenfolk had gone up to Stockholm on family business last weekend, and while they were there I asked a favour of them, to pop into Grace Tea House and buy me a glass gaiwan.
Home again. I know it’s silly, but I always get nervous when crossing international borders with tea in my possession.
A good tea person will always be ready to adapt his or her tea making technique as circumstances dictate, and this is never more true as when you’re away from home.
