I am a sucker for pretty teapots and I definitely have a lot that qualify as pretty in my collection. I recently found an eBay listing for a daisy teapot that I could not pass up. Daisies are my favorite flowers so I was sure that this one was going to be perfect for my collection.
When the teapot arrived it was a really busy time so I didn’t even take it out of the box for a couple of weeks. When I did unbox it I was surprised to find it all nestled in a cute little box tied with a bow.
I really don’t think it looks much like a daisy but maybe more of a chrysanthemum type flower but regardless it is one of my favorite teapots in my collection now.
The effect of tea is cooling.
As a drink, it suits very well persons of self-restraint and good conduct.
When feeling hot, thirsty; depressed, suffering from headache,
eye-ache, fatigue of the four limbs, or paints in the joints,
One should drink tea only; four or five times.”
