Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan Claire. This is day fifty-three of that project.

This quilt block shows an orange building with two domed yellow windows on either side of the green door. The windows are framed on the bottom by the same green trim. The roof is paneled and red. A sign with leaves on it reads, "Grean Leaf Tea Co." and the right side window has the word "Open" sitting inside it.

New Zealanders once consumed more tea per capita than any country in the world.

Hard to believe isn’t it? Until the 1980s when coffee was grown in New Zealand tea was definitely the drink of choice. Tea is experiencing a resurgence in popularity. The Zealong Tea Estate is responsible for tea’s new surge.

The Green Leaf Tea Company is a hotspot that specializes in teas from the Zealong Tea Estate. Served in beautiful teacups or to-go cups it’s selling like crazy.

Several blends produce a heady aroma when you walk in the door. After enjoying your cup you will want to take a pound home to share with your mum.
