One of the things every expat must learn is how to deal with missing those every day items that you love. Or, more importantly, figuring out how to get them where you live! As a tea drinker, I’m in the minority here in espresso drinking Italy. While you can find many different types of tea in the supermarkets, I haven’t found replacements for my favorite green tea and my favorite earl grey tea yet. Last week, I used the last tea bag of the Yogi Green Tea Kombucha that I love, and I’ve been avoiding thinking about earl grey tea since my loose leaf bag was running woefully short. Imagine my joy  today when I opened this lovely box from my mom stuffed full of my two favorite teas. Phew … just in time!

Grazie mille, mamma!!!

  • All us expats need a great ‘mamma’ on the other side as our support network… we couldn’t do it without them!

  • I too suffer when my special products are over and have no way of replacing them. Currently I’m without Hershey’s chocolate chips and I’m dying at not being able to bake any cookies without them!

  • I can bring you Earl Grey, no problem. But you’ll have to wait till Feb. 🙂

      • For the first and then third week of February. Don’t care if it rains. Anything is better than the long cold winter we’ve had here! Have a nice time in the States 🙂
