Teacup Tuesday March 22- American Beauty

Here we are again outside my bedroom french doors on the verandah with a vintage linen hand embroidered tablecloth.
Today's china pattern is American Beauty by Royal Albert. It is made in England and is a popular pattern with full bloomed pink roses. It is one of my favourites by Royal Albert, the other being Old English Roses... perhaps I will feature that one next week.

First we pour the milk in, then place the silver strainer on top of the cup (although some say you should hold it above the cup) pour the tea through the strainer, return the strainer to the matching silver recepticle, stir and enjoy your tea. (of course some add sugar and some omit the milk and add lemon.)
TODAY, I am enjoying T2 Rooibos Red Fancy Fruit Tea, (Rooibos is from South Africa and from a different plant to black and green tea). This tea can be enjoyed with or wthout milk.

Do stay for "Tea"
