I have recently been converted to a "tea-drinker" by my mother-in-law. I have always enjoyed a cup of coffee in the morning, but until recently have had no idea how absolutely wonderful a cup of tea can be, any time of day. Now, the kids can be screaming in the back seat of the car, my anxiety level near the boiling point, and after that first sip of tea I can instantly feel my body relax...and if I try real hard it's almost as if I can't hear the kids at all (just kidding).
However, I have encountered one problem with being a tea-drinker. When visiting any local Starbucks, the paper cup is way too hot. Even if they double-cup it or give me a sleeve I still find it unbearable. So, this week I made myself my own personal cup cozy. Being made of two pieces of fabric with quilted batting inside, it really does the trick...not to mention it makes my cup pretty.
