Several of my friends enjoy great passion for the "art of taking tea". Along with their deep appreciation for tea's ancient history they enjoy the beauty and ceremony of "all things tea".
Being a passionate coffee drinker I appreciate their lively reviews, enjoy their collections and delight at the sight of a beautiful, fanciful tablescape filled with pretty porcelains and fine linens.
This is one of my prettiest teapots-discovered in a Florida antique shop ten years after its' closing. Dusty and worn my beautiful majolica teapot shows wear but is a visual wonder with seashells and a serpent handle.
