One of my small pleasures in life is to make a pot of tea in my stainless steel pot, set the tea tray with stoneware mugs, milk jug and bowl from Lue Pottery and our Tasmanian Blackheart Sassafras sugar bowl, and sit with Adam in the peace of the evening to enjoy a cup or two.
These mugs are from a set of 6 that we received as a Christmas present from my mum, they are gorgeous and I love them. We used to have a set that matched the milk jug but we’re down to 2 of them so it’s nice to have another set. It’s a good thing mum was the one who went to Lue, I’d have come back with an entire kitchen cupboard’s worth! I’m looking forward to serving up tea to my gardener in the new mugs – he appreciates the craftsmanship in the stoneware too.
Our brew of choice is Twinings English Breakfast though we vary that occasionally with a blend Adam brought home from the British Museum. I sometimes think we should be a little more adventurous – does anyone have a favourite brew for us to try?
