Tea, teapots, topic

for Questers

The Bezaleel Wells Chapter of Questers met at Froehlich’s Classic Corner for a luncheon meeting where Jean Turrentine was the hostess and program presenter to the topic “Tea, Teapots and Infusers.”

Carole Gaston, president, presided for the business meeting, with reports from Theresa Milliken and Marlene Rhueff.

Turrentine told members that tea was first tasted by a Chinese emperor around 2700 B.C. Then someone in China invented a device that shredded tea leaves, making it easier to brew tea. Making tea in a cup, however, appears to have begun in the 19th century when silver infusers were made to hold tea leaves.

Infusers were very popular in the late 19th century and were made in many shapes, many made of silver. Some even had elaborate embossed designs, which made them very collectible, she said.

The teabag was invented in the United States in 1903. It was a hand-sewn silk bag. There are 3,000 varieties of tea, according to Turrentine, including Darjeeling, which is considered the champagne of teas.

Turrentine displayed several teapots and infusers. One teapot was cobalt blue trimmed in gold. She also showed infusers, one of which was for an individual cup.

Carlotta Jordan will serve as hostess of the next meeting when the topic will be “Depression Glass.”
