I posted last week about my dalliances with the potent drug coffee, but despite our espresso machine at Castle in the Air we owe just as much inspiration and productivity to the brewed leaf as we do the stewed bean.
Mr. Marsh always makes sure the teakettle gets on in time for 4 o'clock, and if any of us wander past his desk while the leaves are steeping, we can sing along with the daily screening of the ode by Professor Elemental, our tea-time hero.
My girls have discovered the joys of tea-time, too, and cheer for their afternoon cup. (I don't think they've seen the video yet, though!)
