I decided today's post would be a more light hearted look at the world of tea!
I follow a blog called Teapotsteapotsteapots Andy is an artist (there is a link to his own art blog in his sidebar) and he features tea related art in each of his posts.
The following links are some that I found scrolling thru his posts and sidebar.
One of his posts was about an adorable new book called Steampotville, where animals dress up and live in a town filled with teapot houses. It is touted as a book for kids and adults alike. Gotta get this book!!!
Another art blog, from across the pond, has created a beautiful and bright teapot poster. He gets his inspiration, at times, from teapots he sees on teapotsteapotsteapots!
And for a clever and distorted look at teapots,tea infusers, and gravy boats- check out the metalwork of Mister Clarke!
Last, but not least, join the Tea Appreciation Society blog. A modern take on tea- one of the recent posts is about a woman who saves, dries, and dates all her teabags, with a little note saying where, when, and with whom she shared that cuppa!!! She has 32,000(!) teabags stored in 3 suitcases!!!
Today's tea is the good old fashioned powdered kind from the supermarket- surprisingly good! It makes a great iced tea, with a sprig of mint, fresh from the garden. A teaspoon of my lavender syrup makes it that much more special! Granted, a loose leaf green tea, steeped and then iced would be the right and proper way to do it. But, if you are short on time - this is a tasty alternative!
