Would Like to Win: Teapigs Prize

5 Oct

Mar-Tea-Ni

Thank you so much to everyone who entered my competition to win a lovely bundle of teapigs prizes – including a beautiful teapigs mug, a pack of English Breakfast, a piglet of mao feng green tea and one of lemon and ginger – there were some lovely mugs on display and you shared some really sweet and funny stories. It’s great to know how many of us appreciates a good brew.

That said, I can’t have been the only person who noted that, in her speech to the Labour conference, Harriet Harman, when describing the new Labour leader, Ed Miliband – who used to work for her – said he’s “intelligent and courageous”, and added that: “he makes a lovely cup of tea”. Bravo Ed that’s what I like to see in the leader of a major political party…

Anyway, back to business and the winning entry is by Denny from London, with this lovely brew dressed to look like a boozey beverage.

She said: “it’s my favourite mug – a big, hunky chunk of fired clay, with traditional Bulgarian decoration – dressed with an amaretti biscuit to give it that exotic cocktail look. It’s really just  decaf, milky Earl Grey (it’s late, after all…), but still – the most spectacular mug of tea I’ve ever made.”

Well done Denny, it looks totally rock and roll (and cosy too!)…  and thanks to Teapigs for being lovely and obsessed with good, proper tea to a degree that is almost indecent. I heartily approve.
