Making tea is all about the ritual. Nothing is more cozy, on a cold winter’s day, than sitting at the table, drinking a warm mug of tea, poured from the teapot. We found this teapot at the Salvation Army store. It is handmade, as the potter’s initials are engraved on the bottom. We set it on the Samovar (which we are also keeping, at least for now) and stay warm on the cold days.
