It's time for tea with my "Maritime Rose" china.
I only have 4 teacups, 6 saucers and 4 dessert plates to
this beautiful pattern by Spode Copeland's China.
These dishes were at my Aunt Henri's home and I love the delicate
mauvey blue edge with white embossed flowers and the
beautiful roses in the center.
I love tea ~ black, green, herbal and flavoured.
In fact, I prefer tea over coffee any time.
I love tea any time of day too.
My favorites are green, Licorice Spice, Earl Grey Vanilla,
Green Pomegranate, Peppermint, Chai Spice, English Breakfast
and good old black tea.
I don't add milk or sugar to my tea. I remember when I first had a cup of tea
it was at a dear elderly lady's home with a friend. I had never had
tea so I added milk and about 2 spoons of sugar to make it palatable!
I drank my tea that way for years until I was somewhere where there
wasn't sugar so I tried it black. Not bad after all and that's the way I like it.
Of course I always have a sweet with my tea like the frosted shortbread
cookies shown in the pictures. It may only be a Social Tea which sometimes
gets dipped in the tea. Are you a dipper?
I think I'll go have a cuppa right now to warm me up on this cold winter day.
Today, I am joining Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday.
