Mr. Swiss brought this teapot into our married life 53 years ago. At the time I was not a tea drinker, but a coffee addict. Mr. Swiss drank his pot of tea during the day fresh, hot and not so fresh and cold in the evening. He just drank tea like others drank water. And he drank it all from this pot. This is not just any pot but an original iron pot. It is now an ornament and sits on a cupboard in the appartement, hence the layer of dust. I decided not to remove the dust for the photo. It is our pot and I find it has character. It is also quite a heavy pot.
Personally I only began to drink tea about ten years ago when I discovered that my digestive system no longer agreed with coffee. Now I like to drink my cup of tea with breakfast: just a tea bag in a cup with boiling water and leave it to brew in the cup. That is how I like to drink it, no sugar or milk and it gives me a good start to the day.RDP Saturday: Teapot
