Another interesting column! I've heard about standing a teaspoon up in the cup (I like mine less strong, however) but "trot a mouse" is a new one to me. I don't think I want any mice around my tea! :-)
Nice article! Now I am wondering about that trotting mouse. A tea that dark would need a little milk to mellow it out for me.
Nice to see the column!! I think you're perfect for the job.
Your writing always informs and delights me. I'm so happy I found your blog.
Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
