A Cuppa with Hannah Queen

Hannah Queen -- beautiful lady, photographer, maker and story teller joins us today for some tea. I'm pleased as punch to be highlighting this much-adored creative. I first became enamored with Hannah's blog about two years ago.  Her style of capturing painterly light and unfussy foods has always delighted and inspired me. Hannah is a warm soul who's depiction of nature, fresh produce and home cooked food will transport you to a happy place.

What is your favorite type of tea and how do you take it? In the morning, I love a good strong cup of black tea, usually Yorkshire or PG Tips. I take it with a bit of honey and a splash of milk.

How does tea punctuate your day? I like to start my day with a cup on my front porch, while listening to the birds sing & watching the sun rise. I’m a big fan of a late afternoon cup, too, usually sipped while I’m working at the computer. Something a little more exciting than my morning black tea, like black currant or Tazo’s wild sweet orange.

My tea accompaniment of choice is:
thick sliced toast with lots of butter, jam & a sprinkle of salt.

The Lumineers have been the soundtrack of my summer, but as we transition into Fall, it has to be The Civil Wars . . . is on when I'm having tea.

I first started drinking tea when . . . my childhood was filled with many, many glasses of sweet tea, southern style. Ice cold and cloyingly sweet.

My dream tea party would include . . . . makeshift wooden benches under an old oak tree, autumn leaves, an enamelware teapot, boiling over an open fire, cozy blankets, and little apple cakes to share.

When I sip from my tea cup, I . . . am content.
