What does the teapot say to its bag?

I don’t want another seep out of you!

Interesting Fact:  Tea drinking in Europe was initially the preserve of the upper classes since it was very expensive. Porcelain teapots were particularly desirable because porcelain could not be made in Europe at that time. It wasn’t until 1708 that Ehrenfried Walther von Tschirnhaus devised a way of making porcelain in Dresden, Germany, and started the Meissen factory in 1710.[5] When European potteries began to make their own tea wares they were naturally inspired by the Chinese designs.

    • Thank you very much I am very happy you like it. Porcelain tea sets always feel like there is a lot of history there. 🙂

  1. When did they start make porcelain in Russia? There are very old factories as Gzhel, but was porcelain at first?

  2. There is nothing you can’t achieve after a good cuppa! And you can’t beat Yorkshire Tea for a good strong cup. 😀

    • I am happy that I can provide you with one of those shots. Thank you very much for stopping by and checking out my work. 🙂
