Every now and then I'm asked to speak to a church or civic club, and recently I was asked to speak to a local Kiwanis group about where writing ideas come from. I *love* to talk to anyone who will listen about writing and creativity, so I was happy to be invited. These particular Kiwanis ladies are always so nice to me, I was pleased to get to talk to them again. I was even happier when the club's member Louise, a fellow tea lover, presented me with this great thank-you gift!
She became a fan of Ahmad's English Tea No. 1, a wonderfully brisk black tea, on a trip to England and now buys it by the case. She had shared some of this tea with me before, and since it was long gone I was happy to receive another box of it. This time I tried it iced, and it was just delicious!
She also included this stainless steel mug, which of course a tea lover would realize is perfect for transporting hot tea. I believe this is the first time a civic club ever gave me tea for speaking, and it was absolutely the perfect gift!
