You’re My Cup of Tea
Tea is one of my favorite drinks. Ever since living in Ireland during my senior year in college, I have found that the most comforting drink is tea with a little (or a lot) of cream and sugar. Since my cold last week, I have found myself making tea a lot lately. I had forgotten just how much I really missed it. Even in these hot summer days, a cup of tea seems to just hit the spot while I’m working, getting ready, reading, working… you name it!
A couple of months ago, I did a DIY for Umba Box, you can find the original blog post here, on a DIY Tea Set. I have it currently in my kitchen and every time I crave some tea, this set comes in handy.
All you need is:
- White Ceramic Pieces
- An oven or toaster oven
Wash each piece before you design on them. If you need to, take a pencil and draw what you want to design on your ceramic pieces. Take the sharpie and go over your pencil marks or free hand. If you mess up, you can scrub the sharpie off, you won’t be able to do this after you bake them.
When you are ready to bake, place the ceramic pieces on a cookie sheet and place in a cold oven. Bake for about 30-45 mins at 400 degrees.
Wait till they cool down before you move them. The designs should not wash off but just be safe only hand wash.
And now that I have tea on the brain, here are my top picks for tea time. There is always time for a tea party!
