A retrospective, I had this last night!
Yesterday was a bizarre day – I didn’t eat apart from some diet jelly (that’s jello for some reason to you in the US of A, not jam).
I did have 13 cups of tea including the milky concoction I mention in an earlier post and “gasp” 4 bagged teas – two Taylors of Harrogate Lapsang Souchongs and two Pickwick’s Pure Peppermint – as I was at a function at an aussie country pub and didn’t take an infuser because I didn’t want to be beaten up.
So last night, just before retiring and completely stuffed, I enjoyed another of these fine Darjeelings.
I concocted it in Cyril, my glass teapot, to fully enjoy the colour. And I used some 100-year-old Czech gold-rimmed tea-cups. And finally, I added a smidgen of sugar to mine.
It was a near religious experience.
As they say in surfing, you shoulda been there.

100 years old?! How cool!

I had two thoughts as I read this post.

1) I love that you’ve named your teapot. Just love it. :)

2) singing I like aeroplane jelly. Aeroplane jelly for me. I like it for dinner, I like it for tea. A little each day is a good recipe. I like aeroplane jelly, aeroplane jelly for me!
(If I’ve missed a lyric, I apologize. That’s from memory, and I learned it back in ’94 when I studied for a semester at ANU.)

Spot on with the jelly jingle. You see how it just wouldn’t work with ‘jello’ and Americans say “Airplane”
Also, several of my teapots are named. Cyril is clear glass, Clarence is a white rectangular one with a blue will pattern. They are co-stars on my little tea v-blog
