Tea pot sets have evolved from different cultures and customs from century to century.
They have been transformed throughout the years. From a practical item to finely decorated and crafted porcelain pots.
Ewers may have been used to serve water and to hold tea.
I know, I didn't know what an "ewer" was either. It is from the 14th century and is a container or jug for holding water.
Who knew how important all this would become.
Please Offer Me A Fresh Tea Bag and Other Pet Peeves!
I was in a major retail store looking for tea pot sets and was told that spring/summer is not the season for them.
That puzzled me. I didn't know there was a season. It could be just this one store...coffee is served all year!
It reminds me of one of my pet peeves. If I order tea in a restaurant, I am usually not given a new tea bag.
Fresh hot water is offered. My coffee drinking companion gets a fresh cup of coffee. I could never understand that. Anyway.....Additional Articles You Might Like:
