A Proper Cup Of Tea

I’ve previously written about my vintage tea cups on the blog, which I see as a growing collection. I believe vintage china should be enjoyed and not just displayed, they were made to be used after all.

Most days when I arrive home from the day job, I enjoy a cup or two of loose tea, usually brewed in an infuser teapot. The one on the left has sprinkles in it…more on this later!

I discovered this Bakewell Tart tea at Drink Shop Do and then purchased some from Jenier Teas. It. Is. DIVINE.

I had never tried Lavender tea before but I drank this recently before a train journey and had the best nap ever.

Birthday Cake tea is a favourite of mine from Canadian company David’s Tea. I have to stock up when we visit family as they don’t deliver to the UK. It’s my favourite to have at craft parties as the sprinkles make it feel like you are drinking a vanilla cupcake.

This Thunder Bay tea is another favourite in my tea cupboard and is delicious iced as well as hot. My penpal Michelle sent me this fruity tea from her home city.

The lovely people at The Other Duckling kindly sent me some vintage miniature gold rimmed teacups to add to the collection, so I thought I’d share them with you as well as some of my favourite caffeine free teas.

The online store sells some wonderful vintage and retro items for your home, it’s a treasure trove of goodies, especially for those of you who can’t get to flea markets or antique stores easily.

So chuffed with these teacups, they are in such great condition and were wrapped so carefully in tissue and bubble wrap.
