I have many teapots and cups, I've been collecting them since I was about 2 years old. I can get myself in trouble bringing more of them home. But, I usually just heat water on the stove and pour it into a warmed mug.

With two of us drinking lots of tea, a teapot really makes it easier and cheaper.

I also use a mug sometimes, and I have one very special china tea cup that I got from my Mom. She sent it to me so we could have tea together. Those were great times when I could call her in Michigan and say, "Hey Mom, start the kettle. Let's have tea!". We would both have tea in matching cups across the miles while chatting on the phone. I miss her so much. December 1st will be one year since she passed away. It's hard to drink out of that cup without her. :(

Oh chopper what a lovely memory to share with us. Thanks for that. Isn't it great that something as simple as a tea cup can elicit such strong memories for us? And rest assured my friend, in time it won't hurt so much to drink tea from that cup. There will always be a twinge, but it will be softened by the loving memories you have of her. That's what I've found with my own tea cups.

Hey...lets have tea together and think of our respective parents. I'm going to put mine in a crocus cup and drink White Christmas. You?

May I join the two of you. I have Some White Christmas tea I got after reading the posts from you and GB it was my favorite buy. Ill put it in my moms individual put I bought for her her last Christmas with us. I've stayed away from the unit I keep it in most of the time but I think it's time to retire the old mug I use and bring out the pot and cup and saucer with the pretty pink roses. Alix Chopper those memories sweeten with time and one day you will look up and realize life is beautiful.

I'm feeling as if I need to get some White Christmas. Where do I order it from? Is it loose tea or bags? Is there a website or could I find it in the stores? Thanks.
