Tea In England

Today I'm featuring a guest post that is an introduction from a brand new blog called Tea in England. I'm not very familiar with British tea rituals so I can't wait to read Denise's insider perspective.
Hi! My name is Denise and I am the author of Tea in England, a charming new tea blog about my life in England. 
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 also love tea, but not just drinking it - I am fascinated with its history, ceremony, and the entire English tea experience. 
The only way I could eventually get around the whole tea/Anglophile thing was to marry a tea-drinking Brit and move to England. So I did! 
The longer I live here, and the more I travel across this Land of Hope and Glory and Tea, the more I discover that in one way or another almost everything in England has a tea connection. Some are fairly obvious, others are pretty darn obscure – all of them are exciting. 
After two years of posting these unique finds and experiences on my personal Facebook page, I decided that it was time to start sharing it with the rest of the tea-drinking-England-loving world, so I created Tea in England 
If you love tea and you love England, you will love reading Tea in England.
