Favourite tea: The cup that someone makes you when you’re sad and tired and it’s the best thing they can think of to help.
Favourite place to drink tea: Curled up on the sofa with a good book. Either that or at the end of a good night out.
Favourite mug: Does anyone remember a TV show called ‘Ed‘ that was about a lawyer who also ran a bowling alley? When I was supposed to be revising for my A Levels I got obsessed with it. A couple of years later my friend went to America and brought me back an ‘Ed’ Mug that says ‘Attorney at Law’ with a picture of a bowling pin on it. I don’t even use it to drink tea out of, I keep pens in it as I’m scared it will get broken or faded if I actually use it.
More tea-tut for you to enjoy cluttering your home with! Hurrah!
This time, it’s in the form of a tea towel. Now, quite how the tea-towel relates to the contemporary cup of tea I can never quite be sure. Perhaps for mopping spillages, for keeping the pot warm for people remiss enough to misplace the cosy, perhaps for drying those dainty tea cups? I must admit, my tea-towels are not truly tea-specific. That is, until yesterday. This is because yesterday I was lucky enough to be given a Very Lovely new tea-towel.
As you can see, it is indeed Very Lovely. As such it will only serve genteel tea-specific functions. If you would like to buy your own, or another from their range of printed goods (their tea Christmas Card looks very handsome) then this link will be helpful. If you would like to jot down further suggestions for tea-ing up your tea-towels, then I would be delighted to read them.
