Theodosia Browning owner of a Charleston SC teashop may always be a bride maid, never a bride, but this groom is never going to make it to the altar...

Besides, a good Cozy Mystery Childs includes a variety of tea recipes and tips on hosting a tea of your own. A tea lover's gold mine in the back of the book includes a list of publications about tea. American tea plantations, tea Websites and interesting blogs. In addition is also a list of purveyors of fine teas along with their websites. Another rather unusual section is information and suggestions about visiting Charleston.

Thank you for this pile of Tea Shop Mysteries, weeder! I feel really spoiled - what a lovely start for the week.

I tend to buy tea on my travels and so far my favourite Tea Country is France. They were a bit slow to take tea seriously, but when they did, they do it with the same precicion as wine-making. There is a lovely Tea Shop in Paris where the personnel (all male) is dressed in black suits and they have white gloves on as well...
The best rooibus I've found is from Stockholm, Sweden. Luckily it is not that far to fetch.

I'm making more than mental notes that I've tagged Chania with this book, so it should be read in near future.

Pic: This tea tin is over 100 years old and a similar one in much worse condition is on sale on eBay for 40$. It's from a now extinct British tea company called Mazawat.

Gaa, I've completely forgotten to read this, but luckily in a week's time a courier from the north arrives and I can get the book going - having read it first.

Pic: This travel samovar used to belong to Elias Lönnrot and resides now on top of a kitchen cupboard in London Town! No kidding.

Finished! Good plotting to the very end. I did have my suspicions up here and there, but still it was a surprise. And I do love the Indigo Tea Shop, pity it is on a different continent...
Funnily enough, St. Martin's-in-the-Fields church was mentioned in the book and I've heard so much about the past few years as the owner of Lönnrot's samovar is a frequent visitor there. Her nearest church is full of too fine people, so even at the age of 92 she prefers to travel across London to be with the less-fortunate ones as St. Martin was a patriot of travellers and homeless people and the church does a lot of voluntary work sheltering homeless people of the area at night time and trying to get them back on their tracks. And rumour has it they have very good concerts there as well.

Off to Annelis tomorrow to be taken to Taavina-meet-up where I can't go. Taavina has promised to take books to Chania, but that might take a while. On the other hand,I noticed that the book is also on Annelis's wishlist, so it may just be that the mule eats from load and sends the book to Chania having read it first...

Well, I decided to eat from the load. Thank you very much! Charleston is perhaps the only place I would like to visit in the USA (and Niagara falls perhaps).
