Along with my collection of china tea-cups,
which once belonged to my grandmother, I also collect teapots.
Because leaf tea tastes better than teabags;
and any kind of tea tastes better from a pot.
My grandmother rarely drank from her fine china;
she preferred to save it for special occasions.
But I think: why not celebrate every day — indeed, every cup of tea —
as a special occasion?
Hence my ever-burgeoning collection of teapots.
So … Let’s celebrate!
