In America we lack certain”¦traditions. The Spanish enjoy the siesta; the French have affairs; for the British, there’s afternoon tea.
But what’s our tradition? Who knows – we’re too busy rushing around. We’re so accustomed to a Starbucks and Pete’s on every corner, the idea of taking time for tea at home”¦well, it just doesn’t happen. I say it’s time to make time for tea, because nothing beats a good, strong pot of Earl Grey (there’s decaf for all of you non-caffeinators).
And why not serve it with this Porcelain Branch Tea Set? Non-toxic as well as textured to feel like tree bark, this charming set has eco tea time written all over it. The teapot is on sale at VivaTerra for $27, while the matching Creamer & Sugar set is $49.
Just think of all the logo-covered paper cups you’ll save as you also save your sanity. I’m tired of rushing around!
