My life’s essentials 4: bone china

As mentioned previously, tea plays a big part in my life, although the continental European tradition of drinking coffee also features highly. But whether it’s tea poured through a strainer or freshly ground coffee, I always like to drink from bone china. I prefer a cup and saucer, but a mug tends to be more convenient these days.

Perhaps it was the disappointment from years of using ‘corporate’ drinks machines, spitting out unidentifiable hot liquids into polystyrene, plastic or cardboard cups, that heightened my appreciation of bone china, but these days I find it essential for the full enjoyment of a cup of tea or coffee.
