Teapot Tuesday 3
Let me just start with…this is not my usual teapot selection. Not only was this NOT purchased by my mother, it was a total whim but…I have to admit it made me smile. It is pretty difficult to actually find tea related graphics on things, its usually coffee (yuck) related so when I saw these two exact phrases in the last two weeks, I had to put them together and share!
The little, and I mean 2 cup max teapot, more like a “tea for one teapot”, I found at Homesense! It was really inexpensive I think it was $4. I am sure you have heard of the “Keep calm and carry on” series of products? Well this apparently is just one more spin off of a great branding idea. Why not? Keep calm and well…do anything that keeps you calm after all! And certainly to all of us die hard tea drinkers out there, tea will fit the bill, do the trick…and well help us to carry on.
The cute little poster I found in MY green no less, at Majesteas on Queen St East in Toronto. Rob and Ian are great purveyors who are also certified tea sommeliers and have a fun royal themed shop in Leslieville. (I was down there at a cheese, tea and wine pairing that was quite fun!)
Here is the actual teapot on its own…perspective isn’t great here but as I mentioned it is a one or two cup teapot size.
This teapot is make of ceramic, its not fancy, it is the more whimsical of my collection. Most of them have some “antique” quality or otherwise uniqueness to them, which I trust you will see in the upcoming weeks and months!
For this teapot this week, I think I will try some fruity green teas as for some reason with the green poster and the catchy phrase makes me think of Goji Pom Blue Green tea, so that will be one of the first ones listed on Thirsty Thursday…see you soon and as the teapot says…keep calm and drink tea!
