This is a collection of love stories about the old fashioned cuppa tea.

It’s no secret that Lisa-Jo and Christie love a good cup of tea.  Hot, cold, dark, red, or herbal tea is a hot trend these days. But Lisa-Jo’s love for the sweet beverage was born even before she was. And Christie was an early adapter

Between them they invite you to put your feet up, pour a cuppa and listen in as Lisa-Jo shares about her surprising tea discovery while working at the Pretoria News newspaper in South Africa, Christie takes us to Comanche, Texas and memories of iced tea, and between them they invite you into the sacred and completely ordinary rhythm of a day paused by a tray of tea and the people who gather to drink it.
