You reminded me of a little plaque my mom had in the bedroom. It said, "Go ahead. Make my bed." 8)

I don't like fruit teas or herb teas - so I'm not too sure of the 'correct' way to prepare them..... 8)

Here's the traditional British way to make tea - which should be with leaf tea, not teabags. I use Twining's Teas and have Earl Grey, Lady Grey, Lapsang Souchong, Ceylon and Assam as a stronger, breakfast tea.

First boil your kettle. Put a little of the boiled water into the china or earthenware teapot (metal seems to give it an odd taste, IMO). Swirl the boiling water around to warm the pot and then empty. You should then add one teaspoon for each person plus 'one for the pot'. Pour on the boiling water. Give it a quick stir and allow tea to brew for 3-4 minutes. Put milk in cup (there is a lot of hooey talked about whether milk should be added first or after the tea is poured - I've never been able to detect the difference!), pour on tea. Drink!

I like putting the milk in after the tea because it has a nice swirly effect.

Oh yeah, I'm real scientific about my food preparation.

Voices from a distant past...

Exactly as my very British and Irish Grandmothers instructed it to be done...

I think I've seen exactly "one" metal teapot in my life...purchased (probably at a garage sale!) and abandoned when the tea tasted lousy...

It infuriated my grandmothers that I could not stomach tea that had milk or cream added to it...the dairy took away the unique tastes of "tea", yet they "insisted" that this was the "only way" tea could be enjoyed, which is probably something to do with why I, my sisters, cousins, aunts and uncles never drink it any more...

There was a great fad a while back in the UK for using Danish stainless steel teapots. The designs were wonderful - pity the tea didn't taste quite right... 8)

And hey, less of the 'voice from the distant past'.... I'm not THAT old 8)
