This week we'd like to draw your attention to a lovely chain of blog posts being done about the English custom of offering tea to house guests.
First the lovely Iota blogged amusingly about the ancient ritual of tea in England, what it means to the giver and the receiver. (Be sure to read both blog posts.)
Then Michelloui, The American Resident in England gave us her perspective as someone not having grown up with the tea thing.
Next Nappy Valley in New York - joined the Tea Party with her thoughts and memories.
For non-Brits, we recommend a read of all three blogs which describe precisely, what tea means to Brits. For Brits, the blogs will bring a smile to your faces and perhaps prompt you to add a comment here or on their blogs.
And the best ever tea cup/mug - one which holds the biccies too -
