Happy Tea Time

1 October, 2010

Certainly the most Pleasant time of day.  General Tea intake (industrial or ‘builder’s tea’) punctuates the Author’s day on the half hour, but the precious ceremony of Tea Time calls for delicate, pretty Tea Cups such as these–not hefty, utilitarian mugs.

the Author’s Childhood Tea Time consisted of the following:

4 in the afternoon, everyday except Sunday, Cinnamon Toast, Chantilly cookies, ‘I Was Walking Through the Forest’, one sugar cube, ‘thank you for a lovely time’ and if you hadn’t misbehaver, or worse, cried, a reply of ‘come again’.

    Ah, tea, the most civilised meal of the day. And how many of us share a delight in vintage tea cups? I inherited my grandmother’s Wedgewood tea service and always feel I must be ladylike when I use it.

    Mugs are for coffee…the tea cups observe us from the shelves of the china cabinet until they come out for tea promptly at four, joined by the Earl Grey tea cake and a bit of lemon curd…Delightful.
