There were old farmhouses round where I grew up in Donegal that were not a million miles from that, and were still in use when I was a kid. Tea tastes great when made in a black iron kettle heated over a turf fire.

I just learned that some people also say you should never wash your teapot because that makes the tea taste better too.

I just want to sit in front of that with a glass of whiskey!

On the left-hand side of the photo, you can barely see the arm of a rocking chair next to the fire. I’d say it’s a cozy place to be on a cold winter day with a cup of tea or that whiskey!
