Laura: Thank you for inviting me to tea, it's really good of you.
Melanie: Not at all, we're delighted to have you. May I pour you a cup of tea ?
Laura: Oh, yes, thank you very much. What beautiful china !
Melanie: I'm glad you like it. This is part of tea service which my grandmother left me. I was her only granddaughter.
Laura: It's all so artistically decorated.
Melanie: It is very fine work and genuine Chinese porcelain.
Laura: No doubt that's why your tea tastes so good.
Melanie: Thank you. They do say that tea always tastes better from real porcelain.
