In the Summer I don't usually drink tea in the afternoon but last week, on a greyish and Autumnish day, I opened the tea season at home. Always green tea but often with some different flavours.
Fui buscar ao armário uma chávena da Vista Alegre não muito antiga, enchi-a de chá, adocei-o com mel e instalei-me na varanda.
I took a Vista Alegre vintage cup from the cabinet, filled it with tea sweetened with honey and made myself comfortable on the balcony.
Then I added a book I've been reading by Arnold Bennett, an English author born at the Staffordshire Potteries, who very well portrays the atmosphere in the pottery towns of his region, the Five Towns.

What else could I wish for a perfect late afternoon? Only your company...
