Teapot Tuesday is all about my obsession with teapots and today I am sharing one that I got in a “lot” of teapots from a collector on eBay. Sometimes the best things come in packages with other things and that was the case with this classic and sturdy white porcelain teapot that I got a few years ago.
It is a great teapot because it comes with a built in strainer and I love that feature in a teapot.
I don’t think this teapot was used too often from the looks of the inside but I love the simplicity and the sturdiness of the design.
Of course I am clueless as to what this says but I will work on getting a translation since I have a good source now.
I loved how my teapot looked nestled by my some of my herbs on one of my porches, don’t you? Perfect for a pot of mint tea, perhaps?
Enjoy your day and remember that any day is made much better when there is a cup or two of tea involved.
“The leaves that remain are only a very small part of the tea. The tea that goes into me is a much bigger part of the tea. It is the richest part.
We are the same; our essence has gone into our children, our friends, and the entire universe. We have to find ourselves in those directions and not in the spent tea leaves.”
