"It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.” J.R.R. Tolkien
A dangerous business indeed! That is a bit how I feel right now, timidly peering out into the wide world of blogging, hesitant to take that first step. But here I am, putting words on a page, drawing inspiration from this very painting as I write. It hangs on our wall as a daily reminder to take the adventure. To be filled with the wonder of what lies ahead, cherishing the homey haven that is behind.
Our journey with Albion Tea Company has definitely been an adventure. Almost 8 months ago we left successful jobs to build, create, and dream. Our passion is to bring real food goodness to the realm of tea and change the world in the process. Our inspiration springs from great books and the British Isles. Our persistence is found in YOU, our trusty fellow adventurers, bolstering us up with orders and ideas and amazing pictures of our creations being enjoyed.
And so I dedicate this blog to each of you, in the hopes that I can paint the raw and the real, the magic and the whimsy found in life as a tea artisan, entrepreneur, and adventure seeker. The road does indeed go on and on...I for one can't wait to see what is around the next bend!
