What Starts With “T” What Ends With “T” & It Is Full Of “T”?

Teapot.

Interesting Fact: From the end of the 17th century tea was shipped from China to Europe as part of the export of exotic spices and luxury goods. The ships that brought the tea also carried porcelain teapots. The majority of these teapots were painted in blue and white underglaze. Porcelain being completely vitrified will withstand sea water without damage, so the teapots were packed below deck whilst the tea stayed on top in the dry. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teapot )

  1. British friends told me I had mettle,
    They surely weren’t ready to settle:
    “Matt, go smoke a fag!
    It’s two pints per bag
    And never three bags per kettle!”

    (Actually, I never knew the difference between a ‘teapot’ and a kettle until I met them. I boiled three bags, once.)

  2. Excellent shot, you should do this one for the Sunday Stills challenge this week. 🙂
    p.s. my favorite tea is Assam.
