And One for the Pot

TEATIME_001

I love going out for afternoon tea or setting up an afternoon tea at home. I don’t do it so much now that my children are older but on Sundays we would have an early roast dinner and then a tea in the late afternoon quite regularly. Other than that I am not much of a tea drinker. I limit myself to two or three cups of coffee a day and then I drink water…well, til the sun is over the yardarm and then I might have a little tipple. I have never in my life had a cup of tea at work which is why I was surprised one year when my Secret Santa at work gave me a tea pot stand. A very ugly tea pot stand. In fact it may have been a home made tea pot stand as it really just looked like a ceramic tile with a couple of iron legs stuck to it.  I’m pretty sure who my Secret Santa was that year and she had just got married a few months earlier…I’m guessing she got a rather ugly home made tea pot stand as a wedding present from someone else.

The set from Fancy Decor at The Crossroads really brought back a lot of very happy memories of afternoon teas with friends and family. On a recent visit to the UK I took my friend Shep to a lovely tea shoppe in Winchester which served a delightful tea very similar to the one in the Fancy Decor set. I’ve also had themed afternoon tea at a hotel in London with another friend from Second Life.  But most of all I keep remembering how confused I was as a child when my grandmother told me that you put a teaspoon of tea for each person, plus one for the pot, into the teapot.
