baystateparent account executive, Staci LaTurno, makes tea sound so perfectly lovely, especially when she describes going to high tea in Boston (Her favorite is the Taj).
Staci started going to tea houses with her mother when she was a teenager. While she didn’t like the taste of tea at first, she loved getting dressed up (the mother-daughter rule was "always wear pearls") and spending one-on-one time with her mother.
Lots of honey sweetened Staci’s love of tea through the years, and now she enjoys a cup with her mom, girlfriends, and now her fiancé, Geoff.
“For Valentine’s Day, he knows how much I like tea, so he surprised me at home with homemade finger sandwiches and a picnic on the floor with tea. He even cut off the crust of the cucumber sandwiches!” Staci said.
Perfectly lovely. We told you!
baystateparent is looking forward to our February issue (we are going to press today) where we talk about tea as a family tradition and a way for women to come together.
