On a weekend like this, if you’re not at EP (we say, quietly smug), there’s nothing better to do than drink gallons of tea, or, if you’re anything like us, you might just replace the tea inside the teapot for some gin. We won’t judge.
Whether it’s good old-fashioned Barry’s tea (or Lyon’s, we’ll leave you to debate that amongst yourselves) or hard liquor, there’s something incredibly therapeutic about sitting down in front of a pretty teapot; unlike your takeaway
coffee cup, this forces you to slow down, take stock, and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. And is there anything more comforting than having your best gal pals or your mum around and taking out your best teapot? Oh, the chats will most definitely be had, the problems of the world will be solved.
Teapots are a great way to add some personality to your GAFF. You might have a very muted palette and an otherwise pattern-free living space, but you can always have a little fun with your cup of shcald. Whether you go vintage, contemporary or delightfully childish (see the Beauty and the Beast teapot above), you’re sure to find something that tickles your fancy here. What’s more, they make for the most perfect and low-cost gift.
