It’s all about me!

My name is Denise and I am the creator and writer of the Tea in England blog. I’ve recently shared with you the story behind this blog and the story behind the blog banner, so today I thought I’d tell you a little bit about myself.

I love England and have been an Anglophile all my life. Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, I don’t exactly know how that happened, but suspect that Rex Harrison in ‘The Ghost and Mrs. Muir’ had something to do with it.

I love Tea ~ and not just drinking it. I am fascinated with its history, ceremony, and the entire tea experience.

The only way I could eventually get around the whole Anglophile/Tea thing was to marry a tea-drinking Brit and move to England. So I did! Three years ago, after living for six years in the States, we returned to the UK; later this year I will obtain British Citizenship which I am very excited about.

I live and work in a small village not far from London, and have been designated by The Travel Institute as a London Destination Specialist. I can tell you how to get from Twinings on the Strand to the Ritz London in Piccadilly in time for Afternoon Tea, just please don’t ask me whether it’s jam or cream first when the scones arrive – I’ve not even finished my sandwiches yet!

I am also a UK Tea Council Tea Masterclass graduate – which just means that when it comes to tea, I can talk for England. This blog was created to let me do just that.

Thank you for dropping by! But before you go having a good snoop about, what do you say we put the kettle on?
