From "365 Things Every Tea Lover Should Know"


Orange Pekoe tea has nothing to do with oranges!  It is named after the Dutch House of Orange and relates to a grading system term used to grade black teas.

Hello, I still resent his blog that I find so charming and inspiring. I've always loved the sets of tea cups, coffee or tea as a delicacy. Believe me, sometimes the mere act of observing his blog, gives joy. God bless Marie Rose greetings

Your pretty pink columbines look nice with your tea things. The cake with the strawberry on looks pretty inviting.

Bernideen,
your mosaics are so great. I discovered a little blueberry cake that looks phnatastic.
Greetings, Johanna

What a pretty mosaic, Bernideen. The desserts look awesome as is your teapot. Thanks for telling about the origin of the term Orange Pekoe. I had never heard that.
Blessings, Beth
