Trust me, you don’t ever want to be the person who serves me a ‘pot of tea’ in a cafe only to bring out a teabag swimming in a tank of water.
I love tea. I love it so much I wrote a whole book all about the business of tea and designing teas. Hopefully, you’ll get to read this book in its published version in 2013. I called the book, Take a Chance on Me, and (quite seriously) nearly called it Take a Chance on Tea.I’m passionate about not only tea but the beauty associated with it: the teapots, the teacups, the doilies, the butterfly cakes, the sugar cubes and tiny teaspoons. While writing the book, I began collecting teapots and cups before I eventually realised that I live with a soon-to-be-running-around-the-house baby, two large dogs and three wild cats and the chances of any of these china beauties lasting in our tiny house would be a minor miracle.
So while drinking my cup of chai this morning, I did enjoy this post from Book Riot on bookish teapots. I’ve pasted my favourite one from that post and look forward to part 2.
