Tea Time Tuesday

Well here I am again, showing you another tea related post. Just love tea things and all the warmth it suggests. Valerie over at Traveling Through is sharing her Tea Time things too.

Today I wanted to show you my white tea things.

The two white tea pots belonged to my BFF that passed away 5 years ago. She was a huge collector of all things tea. I was fortunate that her family shared many of her tea things with me. The pot in the front is a Lenox piece called "Butlers Pantry". The larger pot behind is marked J & G Meakin - England "Classic White". The tea cups are marked Independence Ironstone Castleton - Japan. I love how elegant these white pieces look together.

"Nothing is more enjoyable then sharing a pot of tea with an old friend."

Won't you join me for a spot of tea today?

I favour white dishes for everything for exactly the same reason ... they match so well together even when they come from different makers, times etc. And these look wonderful together. PS I'm a tea drinker too and it's so nice to meet other tea drinkers.
