Why ‘Over the Teacups’?

I discovered the phrase while researching my family history. It was the name of a social column in the Methodist newspaper, the sort of things that would be discussed by friends over a cup of tea. I hope this blog will feature those things that you’d talk about over the teacups – faith, life, books, food, friends and family. Also, I really love tea.
