I've come upon a little collection of teatime images which I am happy to share with you! There is nothing I love better than a hot, bracing cup of tea. I take mine with milk and sugar, and I brew it with a clove of cardamom. I always use fresh water for boiling (never reboiling the water) and I let it steep for a good 3-4 minutes before adding milk and sugar. Nothing makes me feel better after a stressful day and it is a must to start my mornings. I drink a few different brands I get at the Indian grocer, Wagh Bakri, Red Label and Taj Mahal, but I love all teas, herbal ones too. I usually also take a break every day around two o'clock to brew a cup to get me through the afternoon. I am fascinated with tea and all its accoutrements. I'll share more in the next few posts, for now let's start off with a few dear images. Perhaps you'd like to take tea in the salon, with plenty of lovely china teacups and gussied up in finery?
Or maybe you're the sort that loves a teddy bear tea, especially a cup of blackberry tea brewed with fresh blackberries gathered by sweet little bears?
Perhaps you're the sort that prefers tea boiled in a strong kettle over a campfire and enjoyed with a bevy of bunnies?
Whatever your preference, I hope you'll join me over the next few days for more tea talk and lovely images. I'll share my very favorite recipe for a teatime treat and some really sweet images!
