So....the cooler weather puts us in mind for a cup of hot tea. When the neighborhood is fragrant with woodsmoke to take off the September-like chill, a mug of steaming tea goes down nicely!
My British brother-in-law showed me the way to make a good cup. First, fill the cup about 2/3 full with freshly brewed tea. Whatever you like, though we usually had English Breakfast or an Earl Grey.
Then add milk until the tea turns a warm caramel color. That's the right amount of milk, and enjoy! They still get milk delivered in glass at the door...
We used the Churchill china in the Port of Call pattern.
Churchill has been producing china for more than 200 years. It includes wares sold under the Churchill and Queens brands. We saw a line designed in whimsical colors by British designer Cath Kidston, who is also know from many bright and cheery soft-lines home items, such as aprons, sheets and towels. We'll certainly be looking for those in our travels!by
