Charles Kraft And Michael Leavitt Twisted Tea Pots
Swellco & Swellco’s Tips For Tea Time
This is my first attempt at a Swellco & Swellco blog post and I feel like I want to start out with something real classy. I was getting high on god and or weed yesterday while wandering around the internet and came across these killer tea pots. They’re a collaboration by these dope artists Charles Kraft and Michael Leavitt. They make one for all the classical composers from back in the day. Aleister Crowley, Marilyn Manson, all the people who personify old timey art.
My roommate Fredrick aka “Bitch”is standing over my shoulder because he’s a bitch. He starts going on about how it’s proper etiquette to pour the milk FIRST. I wanted to slap him upside the head. We got into a full fledged argument over tea that escalated into… me slapping him upside the head. He split, stealing half a bottle of Powers and my XBox, because he’s a bitch.
So let me lay down some basic facts in writing so no one else will go around ignorant and confused like this bitch.
Originally all tea cups in Europe were made from soft paste porcelain. The milk was added first to temper the cups from cracking. Once hard paste porcelain was discovered in Europe, it was no longer necessary to temper the cups. Hence, it makes more sense to add milk after the tea has brewed. As any non-bitch knows, the correct brewing of tea cannot be judged by its color, therefore milk after is a wiser choice.
Also, for the record
-The spout of the teapot and the teakettle faces the hostess or pourer.
-It’s improper to dine with your gloves on. Remove your gloves before you even think about sitting down.
-Fredrick is a bitch.
-You can find these Tea Pots and other dope art at their site.
