Carnival of Family Life: Tea Edition


The Cup of Tea by Mary CassattWelcome to the Carnival of Family Life: Tea Edition! I’m so glad you’re here, please sit a spell and I’ll put the kettle on. I’ll be weaving a bit of the fascinating story of tea into my presentation of blog posts, and I hope you’ll be thinking of warm conversations with good friends. I found a lovely old book, Talking of Tea (1956) from which I’ll pull some tea tidbits and treasures for you, and also The Charms of Tea by the Editors of Victoria Magazine (1991).

By the eighteenth century tea had taken hold of Britain and one remarkable consequence was the rapid development of pottery and porcelain for tea wares. The original Chinese tea cups were tiny fragile things without handles or saucers. The Europeans modified accordingly to suit their grand tastes for tea, making a bigger cup, and giving the teacup a handle to make holding a hot cup an easier matter.

One ingenious tea cup variation of the late nineteenth century was the mustache cup. This cup was fitted with a bar across the inside for the drooping mustache to rest upon so the tea could be swallowed without first passing through a hairy filter. Which brings me to the first post about family pets (just thinking about hair):

Alice in Wonderland: A Mad Tea Party by Arthur RackamBefore the end of the eighteenth century the firm of Twining was using tea wrappers, printed in the style of tradesmens’ cards of the period. Grocers also began to wrap their customers’ tea purchases in tin and lead foil, which was included in the gross weight of the tea. But the practice led to abuse, and unscrupulous grocers gave false weights. At the same time, some Chinese merchants began to colour their cheap teas with artificial powder so as to make them look like the best. G. Huxley, Talking of Tea

What should mightily recommend the use of Tea to Gentlemen of a sprightly Genius, who would preserve the Continuance of their lively and distinct Ideas, is its eminent and unequalled Power to take off, or prevent Drowsiness and Dulness, Damps and Clouds on the Brain, and intellectual Faculties. It begets a watchful Briskness, dispels Heaviness; it keeps the Eyes wakeful the Head clear, animates the intellectual Powers, maintains or raises lively Ideas, excites and sharpeneth the Thoughts, gives fresh Vigour and Force to Invention, awakens the Senses, and clears the Mind.
Dr. Short, 1750 Discourse on Tea, from Talking of Tea

French Tea Garden by Childe Hassam

The maid led him through the darkness of the drawing room to the terrace in the patio, where he saw Fermina Daza sitting beside a small table set for two. She offered him tea, chocolate, or coffee. Florentino Ariza asked for coffee, very hot and very strong, and she told the maid: “The usual for me.” The usual was a strong infusion of different kinds of Oriental teas, which raised her spirits after her siesta.

“You can ask Diana to come over and spend the afternoon with you and have tea here.”
“Oh, Marilla!” Anne clasped her hands. “How perfectly lovely! You are able to imagine things after all or else you’d never have understood how I’ve longed for that very thing. It will seem so nice and grown-uppish. No fear of my forgetting to put the tea to draw when I have company. Oh, Marilla, can I use the rosebud spray tea set?”

    Jen: This is wonderful! I just LOVE the paintings and the way you have woven the information throughout the presentation of the entries. You have really “raised the bar” when it comes to being a creative host! :-) THANKS so much for hosting and for taking the extra effort to really make the Carnival an “event.”

    Thanks Jen for hosting and including my post. It’s a lovely theme.

    And thank you for the facts on tea…I never knew this stuff. Now it’s clear, as Dr. Short says, that all I need is tea and I should be a star.

    Best regards

    Fantastic. A wonderfully crafted and illustrated carnival. Hat’s off! (Or should I raise my pinkie?)

    Excellent carnival! And so much good information. You are a gracious host, and I too love the illustrations and how everything works together. Thank you!

    Thanks for hosting! Very creative… :-)

  8. Renae April 28th, 2008 at 8:44 am

    Nice job! Of course, I love the paintings. ;) Now I want to make a cup of tea. I bet my kids would join me, although we won’t look as regal as the beautiful ladies by Mary Cassatt.

  9. Tipper April 28th, 2008 at 9:59 am

    What a beautiful post-I feel like I have been to high tea in London! I would love to see the cup with the moustache holder.

    Thanks for being a super host and letting me be part of it!
