It’s Tuesday here on It’s Just Life and if you have followed me for any length of time you know that if it is Tuesday it means it is Teapot Tuesday where I share another teapot from my ever growing collection. This week you get a bonus with my picture. I am always trying to get the best possible picture of my teapots but sometimes it is difficult to get the lighting right . When I shot today’s teapot pictures I had a helper, as you can see.
This teapot, I suppose, should be more aptly called a Mocha pot. It is a sturdy, large ceramic piece that I got from my eBay seller who is selling off her mom’s collection of over 1000 teapots. I love the colors and even though it can be thought of as more of a “coffee pot” I am sure it would not complain if I brewed a nice chocolatey tea in it.
Thank God for tea! What would the world do without tea? how did it exist? I am glad I was not born before tea. I can drink any quantity when I have not tasted wine; otherwise I am haunted by blue-devils by day, and dragons by night. ~Sydney Smith, quoted in A Memoir of the Reverend Sydney Smith: Volume Iby his daughter Lady Saba Holland with A Selection From His Letters edited by Mrs. Austin, 1855
