The perfect cup of tea

For as long as I can remember I have always enjoyed a nice cup of tea. I inherited my love of tea from my mum who taught me that black tea should be drunk medium weak to enjoy its flavours. Being dairy free means that I enjoy all my teas milk free. I have tried on a couple of occasions to add milk but I just can’t bring myself to drink it. I use my blog to share my tea experiences with a new tea review every Tuesday. My mum decided in her wisdom that my tea reviews would look more inviting if undertaken in a nice cup and saucer. So she bought me this wonderful teacup set for my blog. I love my teacup and it makes a drinking a cup of tea a pleasurable experience. I frequently receive many comments about it and asked where can be purchased from. Sadly, it is getting a little overused so my mum has been on the hunt for a new teacup for my blog. So here is the new addition to my teacup collection that will hopefully soon be making an appearance on my blog.

    I love a cuppa but also drink my tea milk free. In fact I can’t remember the last time I had normal tea with milk, our cupboard just has a million different green teas! Thanks for linking for #marvmondays x

      Hi, It’s nice to know that I am not the only one who enjoys their tea milk free. I’m glad that I’m not the only one who has far too much tea?.

    Aww, it’s so sweet that your mom got you these especially for your tea reviews!

      She sure does. I’m spoilt.

    Lovely cups! #sharingthebloglove

    I love your cups and saucers! I am also a massive tea fan. My preferred cup is more medium and I do have milk in it. I insist on leaving the leaves to brew though rather than just chucking more tea in it (like when you buy a cup from Starbucks and they just put in an uber bag to get it ‘brewed’ in about 10 seconds!). I’d rather not drink a cup of tea than drink a bad one. It’s meant cutting back on tea since becoming a mum though – haha! #SharingTheBlogLove

      Thank you my mum spoils me. It’s worth saving for a quality tea that can be enjoyed and appreciated.

  15. May 18, 2017 / 11:54 am

    What a really lovely, straightforward thing to do. I love it. That teacup is beautiful too. #sharingthebloglove

    • May 18, 2017 / 4:53 pm

      Thank you I am spoilt.

    I don’t drink tea or coffee but I LOVE your cup and saucer! There’s just something so delicate about drinking from a beautifully decorated tea cup! #sharingthebloglove

    • May 18, 2017 / 4:52 pm

      There sure is it just makes for a much more enjoyable experience.

  17. May 18, 2017 / 3:21 pm

    I agree with your mum is does look better in a pretty cup and saucer. Seeing these reminds of me of my nan who had a gorgeous set. Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

    • May 18, 2017 / 4:52 pm

      It also seems to taste better as well. My nan also had a lovely tea set.

    Love the tea cups! They’re so pretty! #MarvMondays

    I’m sure tea tastes better from a pretty cup and saucer set! I have lots of beautiful random ones that I collected over the years, and also inherited a really cute set from my Grandma. Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

    • May 22, 2017 / 4:45 pm

      I bet the set from your grandma is the best one.

  21. May 19, 2017 / 12:44 pm

    I find the right or wrong cup can make or break a cup of tea! #marvmondays

  22. May 22, 2017 / 8:58 am

    I like it strong, with skim milk, it’s how I was brought up, in the North. And it’s very difficult to get it like that here in Alaska.

    • May 22, 2017 / 4:40 pm

      You can’t beat. Good old fashioned builders tea. Maybe you need to ship some over ?.
