Tea with Lemon

I don’t drink tea with lemon–I prefer milk and sugar. I do, however, like the way a lemon slice looks floating in it, especially if the teacup is old and beautiful. I bought this cup and saucer at an antiques emporium for a few bucks, and love it because it reminds me of my grandmother.

One slice

Here’s another view….

It’s kind of amazing how different-colored backgrounds can change the look of an object, isn’t it? I think Monet said it best:

“Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.”

OK everyone, I’m going out of town for a few days, but will post a photo on Friday and Monday. Probably won’t be able to comment until I get back.

Hope you’re all having a great week so far….

    I don’t drink tea and lemon either but the lemon slice does look nice.

    This is a beautiful cup. Is it Russian? I have a slightly similar teapot.

    My mom collects dainty tea cups like this. In fact it looks like one she has in her china cabinet.

    Lemon in tea is pretty – but I’m with you – the English have it right, putting milk and sugar in tea.
