Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve consumed more tea than ever. It’s very comforting in cold weather, or when I’m feeling ill, or miserable.
‘Cup of tea’ continues to be one of the most popular search engine results that directs people here. So, for all of you who have come here for a cup of tea, pull up a chair and let me get out my new teapot;
Do you like it? Isn’t it painted with lovely spring colours? I got it brand new from my local Sue Ryder charity shop, and I was so pleased to have it as I’ve been after one like this for a while. But where are my manners; Earl Grey, anyone?
I know that tea purists are reeling in horror at the sight of Earl Grey tea with milk added, but I just can’t bring myself to drink tea without milk, so you’ll have to make your peace with that! I’d recommend pairing the cup of tea with a nice biscuit, or if you can, a delicious Tregroes toffee waffle. Mmmm, they deserve a post all of their own!
This combination makes for a happy afternoon, even if the weather is appalling and uninviting outside my window!
