Elaine recently pinned this elegant tea pot.
Whilst there’s no denying that it’s lovely to look at it’s clearly no good for everyday use. I’d guess that most people don’t bother with a teapot nowadays unless they use tea leaves rather than tea bags.
Mum and dad were both tea drinkers, and it was always made in a Brown Betty Teapot. We had several with the 4 Cup one being used most of the time. Dad liked his tea strong with a dash of milk and two sugars, along with a couple of Rich Tea biscuits which he always broke in half and dunked.
I have to confess that I always talk about a cup of tea when it should be a mug, and I don’t have a teapot!
