|My special dragonfly tea pot comes from Nha Trang in Vietnam.. I love sipping Morning Flower (sunflower, corn flower, rose petals, in a green tea base) from this little treasure..|
|My friend gave me this lovely greeny.. it makes the best lemon grass and ginger tea.. Cool lemongrass brings a zesty zing which is followed by the warming spice of ginger. Cleansing, calming, refreshing and gently stimulating,|
- 3cm of ginger, sliced finely
- 6 cups water
- 2 tbsp honey (optional)
Place the lemongrass and ginger in a pot with the water. Bring to the boil and simmer gently for 5 minutes. Strain and serve with honey if too pungent.
Makes 5 cups - decant into your lovely little green tea pot and sip and enjoy!
|This tea pot is Italian.. it makes the BEST Earl Grey tea.. its been used and enjoyed over many years, and bears witness to lovely tannin inside.. but beware.. anyone trying to get me to 'bleach' those marks away.. this adds to the flavor !!|
I'm a little teapot,
Short and stout,
Here is my handle, (one hand on hip)
Here is my spout, (other arm out with elbow and wrist bent)
When I get all steamed up,
Hear me shout,
Tip me up and pour me out! (lean over toward spout)
Nothing beats our memories of a good cuppa tea!
