Show and Tell Friday is hosted by Kelli at There is No Place Like Home
Today as I prepare to host a four-day family get together next week, I am extremely pressed for time, but wanted to participate in Friday Show and Tell.
Here is a small item I bought at a local antique shop. It is a tea tin for Earl Grey tea, one of the most popular black tea blends. It is printed with the name Earl Grey and Oriental style scenes having to do with the cultivation of tea.
The little caddy is three inches tall and is for loose tea. The lid reads "Crabtree & Evelyn/ London/ Fine Teas."
The colorful scenes on the paneled sides show various aspects of tea cultivation and preparation.
I use decaffeinated Earl Grey from Bigelow. The little cup is a fridge magnet.
