Gathering up everything I need to make a simple pot of afternoon tea for one. The kettle will be whistling soon. Since St Patrick's day is coming up and it's only me, I'm using my shamrock 'Herself' mug.
Twinings Earl Grey is one of my favorite teas. And I really love my speckled green/brown 'Denby Greystone' teapot. It has a delightful round shape!
Do you use a teapot or do you make tea right in the mug? I use a teapot to brew my tea. Do you use loose tea or a teabag? I use both. Do you use milk? Sugar? Lemon? I only use lemon in mine, but bring out the milk and sugar when friends are over.
I sliced up the lemon and put it in a little green 'Block Optic' depression glass dish.
Be sure you stop by Rhondi's to see all the pretty tables set for tea at Tea Party Tuesday, and
Katherine's for Tea Time Tuesday.
