Mashing nations

Tea's up. Fancy a sup? Let's see who's made tea and who's got pot luck.

Tiny teapot or big draw?

And the winner is.....

A little dreg soaked, the winner.....


Drop me your address in an email, Steven, and Shamfeign will wind its way to you.

Thanks to all of you who took part.

My father was given a fancy tea pot for his birthday...a Chinese thing which is supposed to allow you to drop the container with the tea back into the water. I am sure there is a whole book to be written about this - or perhaps just about teapots!

I do like teapots, Cat, my favourite being part of a cottage ware set. And I am very fond of tea. I wouldn't buy a teapot just for the sake of collecting though - it would still have to be functional and be a good pourer!

I bet you could write a book on teapots of the world!

Curses! Foile again! But sincere congrats to Steven for winning a grand book of verse.

Rachel Fenton said...

Haha - there'll be other giveaways, I'm sure, Les - better luck next time!

Tim Jones said...

That is the most classy means of drawing a prize I have ever seen! I'm relieved you didn't need to draw the book itself out of the teapot, though.

Rachel Fenton said...

Poet tea in motion, Tim,I'm a classy lass!

Better than reading the tea leaves is that.

Rachel Fenton said...

I wrote a poem about reading tea leaves, Dave!

Your most recent poem is still doing the rounds in my head, btw - heaps to think about in that one; really enjoyed it.

Weird, to think of oneself folded up in a teapot with a random collection of other people, right round the other side of the world. :)

I'm not a tea drinker, but if ever you do do a competition involving wine sediment, I'll be in like Flynn!

Rachel Fenton said...

Just like the internet, Dominic: some are full of steam; some think they can see the future in the debris at the bottom; and some think the pot was made for them!
And of course, then there are the winners....maybe the teapot analogy needs a little work...:)

Good to see you're back from your easter hols, Dick - will keep that in mind for you!
