dropping in on Tea Leaves .....

I'm a little teapot
Short and stout
Here is my handle
Here is my spout

When I get all steamed up
Hear me shout:
Tip me over
and pour me out!

am sure we all enjoy a cup of tea at some time during the day, and it always tastes so much better when poured from a teapot!

and from Wikipedia :
A teapot is a vessel used for steeping tea leaves or a herbal mix in boiling or near-boiling water. Tea may be either in a tea bag or loose, in which case a tea strainer will be needed, either to hold the leaves as they steep or to catch the leaves inside the teapot when the tea is poured.

Teapots usually have an opening with a lid at their top, where the tea and water are added, a handle for holding by hand and a spout through which the tea is served. Some teapots have a strainer built-in on the inner edge of spout.

A small hole in the lid is necessary for air access inside to stop the spout from dripping and splashing when tea is poured. In modern times, a tea cosy may be used to enhance the steeping or to prevent the contents of the teapot from cooling too rapidly.

Last week we popped into a little store called TEA LEAVES which is situated on the Mt Dandenong Tourist Road in Sassafras, just an hour east of the City of Melbourne.

The winner of 9 tourism awards, Tea Leaves in Sassafras is ultimate way to experience the wonderful world of tastes and aromas that are possible. They have over 300 varieties of teas and 30 varieties of coffee, not to mention the cups, mugs, teapots etc. 

Think gift voucher, think Christmas, think birthday, or gifts for anyone at anytime of the year .....

hey, even think of one for yourself!

The manager of the store kindly allowed me to take a few images, but as the store was rather busy I didn't like to spend too long there, so here are just a few quick ones to give you a glimpse of what is in store for you when you visit.

There is a lot of very valuable information on their website,  and do take the opportunity to visit the Tea Leaf Shop as soon as you can .... you will not be disappointed!
