Tea traditions. Did your mum?

Post by mavisbramston »

I love tea.
Mostly good old English breakfast or what we used to just call tea.
I am not a fan of tea bags .
I use a tea pot with loose teaf
Mostly Tinytips if I can find it.


I have a question.
Did your mum drink her tea from a saucer?

Did any one read tea leaves? Can't do that with tea bags!
I dream, therefore I am.

I can't stand tea, I haven't drunk it since quite a small child.

Neither parent drunk from the saucer but my father liked his tea that hot, that he would be pulling the cup and saucer towards him while my mother was pouring the tea...........one day my mother sort of accidently poured the hot tea on his hand. :heeheehee , fortunately he saw the funny side of it.
A rose by any other name...............

I remember my grandad blowing his tea in the saucer before he drank it.
My mom was too snobby to do such a thing.

I collected teapots at one time but I'm blowed if I could be bothered making a pot of tea now. It's Nerada (grown in Australia - without pesticides!) tea bags for me! Delish!! :icon_biggrin:

I drink only Green Tea with Lemon from Aldi. Very cheap and apparently good for your health.

Can't recall my mother, grandparents, aunts, uncles etc. ever drinking from a saucer and they were all tea drinkers. Dad was a coffee drinker, as am I, although I will have the occasional cup of tea but don't drink enough of it to have any preference as to what is the best make. If I do have a cup then I like it strong with just a dash of milk, no sugar.

I drink Madura of Australia Premium Blend Leaf Tea(from a cup, as my mum & Dad did also)three cups of strong Tea first thing in the morning, with quick dissolving powdered milk to keep the tea hot. Water rest of day.
