how about some tea?



Ruby Tuesday



Back from Is*tanbul, where I had many of these small glasses of tea...

Updated, because inquiring minds want to know...
- this is the traditional way to serve tea: in a tea glass placed on a saucer. The painted saucer seems to be the very traditional one, see here.
- It was black tea, very much the way I like it. I didn't find it too strong and I could drink it black (no sugar) as I always do with my teas. Turkish people always add sugar!!

  2. Welcome Back!
    Love the tablecloth! Is it customary to serve the tea glass in a saucer? That's a new one for me.
    As always - an elegant image!

  6. You have such a way with that camera that you have made that tea three dimensional. Just a lovely photo.
    Hope you are doing well.

  11. DD & I recently went to Celestial Seasonings...our local tea factory. I need to get some of those saucers...that's a pretty way to serve tea and it gives you a place to set the spoon instead of on the table cloth.

  15. Mar, you have a pretty saucer. I will have to try putting glasses on saucers. And your red table cloth is gorgeous.
