A new teacup has arrived for my collection. She was a birthday gift from my mother. I am calling her
. For her inaugural use I made a cup of Black Chocolate Cream Tea and crumpets with butter and honey. It was the first time I had tried that flavor of tea and I must say it was remarkable. It was very smooth with a rich chocolaty feel. It did not have a strong chocolate flavor, but it did have a lovely scent. As far as the crumpets go, what is not to like about a buttery crumpet?

Now that I have four teacups I am going to start looking for nice dessert plates to go with them. I am not abandoning my teacup search, but I have realized my folly in not looking for plates to go with them. How am I to serve treats to guests if I do not have a nice plate to put them on?
