Office Teapot as Decanter

After I saw Gero's post on office matcha, I got inspired to perk up the work afternoon with some quality madeira. I brought in two different madeiras from the Rare Wine Company- the dry sercial and a sweet malmsey. Normally you decant them for a day or two.  In a flash, I saw my glass teapot was perfectly suited for this task.  Madeira in the afternoon is delightfully civilized.

(A most special guest may be visiting the tea closet tomorrow.  I really should go and start scrubbing the house down for such a distinguished personage...)
