and two for tea..."
Seriously Adorable Movie Trailer
Tea for Two (1950)
Anna Maria Stanhope, Duchess of Bedford, deserves some serious applause. Without her we would never know the delicious and delightful pleasure that is afternoon tea.
Back in the day, society gals would only eat two meals a day; one in the morning, and then one at 8 or 9 in the evening! Ugh! No wonder they needed fainting couches!
|I'm soooo hungry!|
|Tea in the parlor anyone?|
Yes, proper. Nothing compares to a pot of tea done right; and nothing compares to the bitterness of a pot done wrong.
But how do you brew a proper pot, you wonder?
Follow this anglophile's advice, and you'll soon be sipping a PERFECT cup of tea.
|If you use loose leaf don't forget to strain the tea!|
|Don't let the kettle sing too long!|
Step Six: Commence the great controversy! Do you add milk before you pour the tea, or after you pour? I prefer after, so that I can better judge the amount I'll need.
|Add milk before...|
|or after! It's up to you!|
Mmmmm.... time for a cozy cuppa.
|Tea for one, in the boudoir please!|
|Is it ladylike to dunk?|
