21st Day of Gratitude

 Today's prompt is Warm Beverage

For years I only drank coffee, except when I was pregnant and for some reason I had months where I couldn't enjoy a cup of coffee.  That was a long time ago now and I am happy to say that tea once again tastes like tea ought to taste!  But only when it's drunk out of a china cup or mug.

I'm not one to start decorating the house for Christmas before December is here but I'm happy to use a Christmas mug (you'd need to zoom in to see the holly sprigs and robins!) Naturally, any mid afternoon cuppa needs to have a biscuit (or two) to go with it, however I am not a 'dunker'; I don't like soggy biscuits and I especially don't like the way crumbs fall down to the bottom of the mug ruining that last bit of tea!

PS Daily Update - Today Rosie is two!  In some ways it feels like that time has flown by and in others it seems like such a long time ago that we had Leo come to stay with us while his mum was in hospital.  We will be popping over later to wish her a happy birthday and maybe take her and Leo over the park to feed the ducks.  Unfortunately because we are in lockdown, no other friends or relatives can come into their house to spend time with her but maybe there'll be a belated party at some time in the future. (We have formed a childcare bubble with them so can spend limited time with them - I hope we can be there long enough to have a slice of cake!)

I'm a tea drinker all the way! I just bought a new pot that I am trying to break in. It has a horrible taste of plastic. I'll give it a couple more tries before I return it. I might have to go back to using my teapots instead! said...

Wonder about your biscuits. Are the snacks you call biscuits sweet? Are they fairly simple or are there all kinds of biscuits? Iced, chocolate chip, oatmeal like our cookies?

I like your holiday mug. I drink all year long out of a mug with snow and pine trees on it. I think I like it best because it has a large mouth. Rather than being tall and narrow, it is squatty and wide. Probably should invest in another one so I don't have to wash this one every day!!

That's a very pretty mug - and totally with you on the need for china when drinking tea. Lovely that you got to see Rosie; these little ones are having such a peer-deprived time, aren't they?

Oh yes. Tea in anything but a china cup is just wrong :0)

I was mostly a coffee drinker until my 30s and lost the taste for it completely when I was pregnant. Tea, milk, no sugar is my hot beverage of choice, in any old cup or mug. Mind you, every December I have my annual decaf, one shot, skinny gingerbread latte.
