JJ posted an open Tea Tag the other day and I thought I'd join in. Jasfoup's out, so there's only you and I here. May I offer you a cup?
Here is the ragged assortment of teas behind the kettle. My general tea, Rington's Fine Flend, is in the pretty caddy. I really can't drink the Typhoo or the PG. The yellow packets are loose leaf specialty teas from the tea emporium down the road.
Mugs, and lots of them. I generally prefer a tall china mug for drinking black tea.
I also have a bit of a zebra fetish, though I did manage to give away 75% of my soft toy zebras last year.
Over the pantry door is another shelf full. These and the vertical shelves are visitor's mugs -- all our regular visitors bring their own mug.
This is the best way to drink speciality teas. This particular one is the "Gunpowder Blend" from Northern Tea Merchants
I shall be on the lookout for an elegantly tall (though not too wide) china mug with a picture of Jasfoup on the side.
