The art of making tea is very simple, but many people do it wrong. If you take care in what you do, you will enjoy your tea. In Jeeves and Wooster there is a good description of tea making where a person does not even know how to boil water. What entails is very funny.

Tea is the choice of royalty too. Tea from my plantations went to the White House, Buckingham Palace and the Kremlin. They all enjoy a good cup of tea.

There is a tradition that tea is served at 4.00 p. m. There are elaborate customs attached to Tea, it is served in Bone China Tea Sets and with a Tea Cozy. That is a padded cover on the teapot to keep the tea hot. Over the ages, Tea Cozy's have changed. Some were in the shape of animals. Some had elaborate embroidery on them; others were from different kinds of weaves. Tea sets too, come in all kinds of styles. Some are tall, some bulky and wide. Some have little stands built on them and some unbelievably, were square. The square ones were mere novelty, as that style did not last too long.

You have finger sandwiches and biscuits to go with it. The sandwiches are made of tomato or cucumber, and the hard ends of the bread are cut. Biscuits are served too to change the taste. Another thing served with good tea is scones. They can be anything for Raspberry to strawberry to plain.

You need something to transport all this. Thus, the advent of the tea trolley or teacart. Most people have seen these small carts in the tea-drinking world. They can be elaborately carved or simple, but always elegant. They generally have two big wheels and two small in the front. However, now you can find all kinds of combinations
