A sip of Tea





by Corey Amaro
Add fresh water to the kettle,
Bring it to a rapid boil, or until it whistles.
Add some of this water to heat your teapot,
swirl it, then throw the water out.
Add a teabag for each person,
and another one for the teapot.
Let it steep for several minutes.
French Vintage 1930-40s teacups.
Mix and match, adds a touch of peppermint!

i love your collection! i'm collecting old tea cup saucers for my 'wedding celebration' this summer - and i'm almost done (i need 70). They're for dessert and a great adventure - each costing between $0.15 - $1!

Thanks for sipping in!
These little teacups I found ten years ago at the fleamarket in Marseille, they cost $2 for a set of six!! I was giddy!
If you would like to see this cup in action check out the last image here: http://willows95988.typepad.com/tongue_cheek/2006/05/every_morning_b.html

Hello. I just discovered your blog. I picked it out of a list because of the intriguing name. As luck would have it, your most recent post is about tea. Lovely. As you can tell from my "name" I am also a lover of all things tea. Best wishes to you. I look forward to exploring your blog.
