THE ENGLISH IN ME - TEA!

teapot

My paternal grandmother's family was from England. Her family came to America from England in 1881 and she was born in the US in 1882. She may have not been born in England, but she inherited the love for a cup of tea!! You never visited her house that she didn't have the 'tea water' on the back burner, ready to make a hot pot of tea.

There was no such thing as a 'tea bag' back then. She used the loose tea grounds in her teapot, then poured hot water over them, letting them steep for at least five minutes. Then she used a strainer to strain out the tea grounds, as she poured the tea into the cups.

Granny made the tea drinking an experience! She always had something 'to dip' into the tea, making it more like a 'tea experience', rather than just having a cup of hot tea! She drank milk in hers. Other English-born people I have met, for the most part, don't put milk in their hot tea, but perhaps use lemon. I would watch her pour her tea into a saucer, let it cool, and then drink it from the saucer, too. My grandfather drank tea, too, and I never remember ever seeing a cup of coffee in that house.
