76:365 Tea Cupboard
Anna: We have a rather small kitchen, and it doesn't have a lot of cupboard space - a universal problem with kitchens, it seems. ;-) It wasn't much of an issue when we first moved, since I left so much behind, bringing just the essentials. So one cupboard for spices, baking supplies and teas worked out.
Since then, however, the girls and I have been trying out new types of tea. Before long, space became an issue. Every time I tried to find some spice or herb for cooking, I'd have boxes of tea falling all over the place. As our collection grew, I finally gave up. I took the stuff I had in the next cupboard over and moved them to a storage closet. I now have one cupboard completely dedicated to teas and mixes (you can't see them, but there are some cans of Gatorade powder hidden in the back corner), and another just for my baking supplies. If I want to use my blender or food processor, I'll just have to fetch them from the bedroom closet. *L*
Funny thing is, after all the teas were removed, my spice cupboard still looks crowded.
Anyone for a nice cup of tea? I recommend the Tetley Vanilla Rooibos or the Numi Chinese Breakfast. The African Red Black Tea, from Poland, is good, too - though I admit I got it because I found the name really funny.
