Teapots come in all shapes and sizes as you well know if you have followed Teapot Tuesday on It’s Just Life for any amount of time.
Animal teapots are a favorite and today’s teapot is one that my oldest son Micah gave me about 7 years ago. Isn’t it adorable?
I wish I could remember where he picked it up for me – it was on a business trip someplace I am sure but isn’t it just adorable?
The tiny pig holds just a small cup of tea but it is one that you can easily refill and refill and refill.
I think a smoky tea like lapsang souchong might be the perfect fit for this little guy. Think smoky bacon. “Smile”.
A Cup Of Tea
Strong or weak to steep it,
A matter of personal taste,
Every sip a savoured joy,
With not a drop to waste.
Some prefer a mellow brew,
For others strong’s the best,
My father said a good cup of tea,
Should put hairs upon your chest.
Whether sipped from a china cup,
Or an ordinary mug,
One thing is a certainty,
Tea should never be chugged.
For those who like this tincture,
None will disagree,
The nicest way to start the day,
Is with a cup of tea.
