On National Hot Tea Day (Jan 12), we had the first office tea social of 2018.
People brought their own cups. I brewed the Madeleine Cookie black tea by Monarch Tea which was a hit! Our tea was accompanied by a box of Girl Guide chocolate mint cookies and good conversation. It was a simple, but fun tea.
When my relatives came over to my place last weekend, I used my Blue Willow tea sets for our tea. Over the years, I've managed to collect 12 tea sets (one cup is missing a saucer) by different makers (e.g., Churchill England, Crown Clarence, Johnson Brothers).
I've also acquired a few mugs by Sadler.
The tea set on the right is a modern reproduction by Johnson Brothers.
I used my new "Drink Me" teapot to serve green tea.
My "Celebrate Life" teapot served the black tea.
Enjoy the last few days of Hot Tea Month!
I'm joining the following parties this week:
