I like Tea. I cannot lie.

As you may be aware (and I am surprised if you are not), I like a good cup of tea. Black (lactose intolerant). No sugar. English Breakfast, Prince of Wales, Blackrose (T2) are some of my favourites. I prefer to use a tea ball – better for the environment and I can mix up something different if I get the fancy. (The tea leaves do wonders in the garden.)

You will often find me tippling the tea while I am writing. I have one in my hand right now!

There are so many interesting versions of the humble tea pot. There is not enough room to store them all in the house. I now pot up my succulents in them.

That doesn’t even touch my collection of tea cups. This month I am showcasing some of my favourite teacups and mugs on Twitter, Pinterest and Tumblr. I hope you enjoy the photographic documentary.

Feel free to post some of your favourites.
