I'm not sure how I ended up not liking the drink. The stereotype of an Englishman obsessed with making the perfect out of black tea isn't far wrong in my experience. In our house the first thing we did when coming home was switch the kettle on. One day I'm going to be design a whole quilt using blocks connected with drinking tea - a tea pot; a porcelain tea cup; a silver tea spoon; a sugar lump.
The first of those blocks will be easy since I already have the Fat Quarter Shop Snapshots pattern for March which is....a tea pot! It's more of a traditional Chinese tea pot than a classic earthenware British tea pot but it's still very pretty.
