“Nobody asked your opinion,” said Alice.”

Finding the perfect teapot is just my cup of tea

Sunday, February 17th, 2013

The enjoyment of tea drinking is shared by many around the world whether as a connoisseur of tea, delighting in delicate infusions, or preferring more humble brews with hug-a-mug comfort. I’ve come across tea lovers who have elevated preparation and imbibing to the point of ritual; all well and good if you have the time for such practices. For others an appreciation of tea exists in the choice of tea bags available on the supermarket shelf.

The Real Art of Tea Drinking

Monday, January 28th, 2013

‘A-R-T’ and ‘T-E-A’: two very small words with a big connection. Let’s not get off to a confused start… I’m not trying to tell you that the contents of your kitchen cupboard are auction-worthy, that your office tea slave is the next Picasso or that your morning mugful is a masterpiece in the making. Nor am I launching a fierce campaign to see a soggy teabag win the Nobel Prize for Art. I simply wish to draw your attention to the generally unappreciated value placed upon the tea leaf in the world of art. Why am I doing this? Hidden amongst the shadows of great masterpieces and swarms of magnus opera lay paintings and posters, wondrous and breathtaking, depicting the act of drinking tea. A patron of the tea world, I implore you to follow me into the misty shadows of the art world as I shed light on those forgotten gems, torch in hand. Read the rest of this entry »

007…On Secret Mission to Tea…

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Maybe this has happened to you… Someone loves coffee. You love tea. You want to be more than co-hot-drinkers. If only your “someone” would share your sipping. It’s a hard road, to convert someone from one hot-drink preference to another. Not that you would presume to try such a thing. But what if you had a moment of naughty intention, just for the sake of… you know, bonding over loose leaves?
