Small Boy learns a new nursery rhyme each week at school and this week it’s I’m a Little Teapot.

I have just started using my teapots regularly as I have switched to loose leaf tea because tea bags contain plastic.

Boil the kettle.

Wait.

Warm the pot.

One spoon for me.

And one for the pot.

Wait.

Pour the milk into the mug.

Find the tea strainer.

Pour the tea.

It certainly takes longer but there’s something peaceful about the pause, the ritual and the space.
