About the Cream

22 x 16 cm
There's definitely the right way to serve tea in Ostfriesland.  The hostess adds the right amount of cream at the right time, the right way.

One day I offered a visitor a mug of tea.  She was on the job and didn't have time for a proper tea party, but I tried to be proper otherwise, and added what I thought was the proper amount of cream for a mug of tea.  She asked for more cream, and I was happy to oblige.  I added the same dose to my tea.  Traditions are nice, but what's really nice, is to enjoy tea the way we like it.

I know we get cream from cows, not chickens :-)
