I broke the precious Beehouse teapot that Doulton gave me as I was making this tea! I just wanted to cry to you all little (cry, cry, cry)! It just slipped off of the counter and smashed into a million pieces.

boo broken beehouse!

Kashyap

falling teapot,
into a thousand shards,
memories swim,
in wet eyes,
brimming with teas,
yet to be sipped.

goodbye little teapot.

Can the million little pieces make a garden stepping stone? A bracelet?

Aw Kashyap you’re going to make me cry more! :)

gmathis – that’s a good question! I swept them into the trash bag but maybe I’ll dig some out and think on them. P.S. Look in your PO box for something from me – around Monday they say :)

OOOOOOH!

So sad about your teapot. What color was it? A local store here has a blue and white beehive with little bees on it. I know it would not replace the special sentiment of Doulton giving it to you, but let me know if you are interested. I have one because my mother and granddaughter have shared the name “Beatrice” and my Dad kept bees when I was growing up. So my family tends to collect “bee” things. What are you favorite colors?

Oh, I just realized, I was thinking Bee hive type teapot and you may be talking about the brand “Beehouse”! Which was it?

JacquelineM

Cissystix,

It was the brand Beehouse. That was so nice of you to think about me :) I like bees too, though – because they are pollinating friends, and because they have a queen :)

I wound up getting two tiny Stump pots – one for me and one for my husband. they’re so cute.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
