I really like the idea of tea shown in different stages of Pam's life. We got glimpses of her past, present and future with the common thread of the act of drinking tea at those certain moments. Great, great idea! The first one made me sad, the second hopeful, the third happy, the fourth a big sigh, and the fifth and last one was bittersweet. This was a great story!
One thing though: there were a few minor typos/spelling mistakes.

Tjis was so beautiful. Part five especially made me cry.
I'm just a little confused, though- what was it that she found in the closet at the end?
Author's Response: Oh thank you so much for saying such sweet things - it's the tea pot that she finds at the end, sorry to make that so unclear :)

This is very nice - you've done an amazing job in very few words! I really liked that the teal teapot is always there, but you don't beat the reader over the head with it. Just a quick nitpick - I think you meant four o'clock, not four a clock.
This was a very nice debut!
Author's Response: oh thank you *takes just a little bow*. I really appreciate the nitpicking, haven't done this in such a long time :) Thank you again
