Tea Time Tuesday

My teacup today is called Royal Patrician.

Fine bone English china with very sweet delicate pansies.

Just had to take a solo picture of the saucer. It is so beautifully decorated.

A very sweet friend came to stay with me a few years ago. She brought me this lovely teacup which had been purchased in Amish Country. I love the delicacy of the flowers. And of course the flower overflowing inside the cup invites you to take a sip of Earl Grey, or English Breakfast tea.

My favorite flavor of tea is Mango. But if you are ever in the Toledo Ohio area, you must stop by Clara J's Tea Room and order their Neapolitan tea. It is more of a dessert tea, but oh my!! is it ever delicious. Clara J's is located in Maumee. Her web site is

Today I am joining Lady Katherine's Tea Parlor, Tuesday Tea for Two, Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday, Martha's Favorites, Sandi's Tea Time Tuesday, Tea Cup Tuesday and Table Top Tuesday.

Have a Tea-lightful day!

Your cup and saucer are very pretty, the pansies are sweet.
I've not had mango tea yet and must look for some to try.

Your teacup is very pretty with its sweet pansies. I enjoy mango tea myself. I really enjoy the fruity teas as well as the spicey ones. Thank you for sharing and for joining me for Tea time. Wishing you a lovely week.

What a lovely teacup. Almost like a watercolor painting. I have never had mango tea. I am peppermint herbal, apple cinnamon, cranberry. Will give mango a try one of these days. Sounds lovely. Since I am new at blog parties, it was nice to meet you today.

That teacup and saucer set is just so beautiful! I adore it! I am going to have to check out that tearoom. I love to find new tearooms. I only live about 30 minutes from Toledo so, it sounds like it would be worth a girls day out with my mom! Thanks for letting me know about it.

The cup and saucer are so pretty and colorful. I like Mango tea too but don't drink it often.

Drinking tea from such pretty cups is a true treat isn't it?
