Our newest correspondent Poppy wanted to share a little bit about herself. She was initially shy with her details, but with some gentle coaxing and a nice sip of Assam, she told me a bit of her story. She started life as part of a 1930s child's tea set. She saw many years of tea parties until being packed away in a basement and forgotten, while different families moved in and out of the house above her. One day she decided there was more to life than living in a musty basement, so she set off to explore...
Poppy will soon be visiting tea shops in the NYC area. If you see her around, be sure to say hello. She may be shy at first, but just give her some tea, and time to tell her stories.
