I went to a tea party last Saturday and it got me to washing up some of my tea pots & cups and making me a cup of my favorite tea which is named Summer Pudding. I use to buy it at a tea shop close to the City Market in Seattle , however last time my daughter went there to buy it for me they had closed. So she googled it and found it and ordered me some from London. It's a dark tea with berries etc in it.
This tea tile I bought in portland oregon several years ago at some antique shop. It's not an antique, made by Burleigh company in staffordshire England, as is my entire set of Blue calico dishes.I do have some reproductions made by Queen that I bough at T J MAxx once.
Anyway wanted to make a pot of tea
One of my favorite canisters , love it
Summer Pudding a loose tea
my tea spoons that loose tea goes in then put your spoon full of tea in your cup. I bought these vinatge tea spoons all over the country as I traveled to different flea markets and antique malls. there is one newer one in this group, the one on the far left you can buy now anywhwere they have kitchen items
This is my favorite tea strainer , it covers your regular size cup add loose tea and pour your hot water through, i think it's so pretty and I love sterling silver also
regular teaspoon and my demi tea spoons
I also have the demi cups and just purchased my cow creamer last year .
I first seen this entire set in a bridal magazine in 1971 and wanted the set I lived in Paducah Kentucky at the time then we moved to Missouri and I was antiquing and found this most wonderful little shop in Moberly Missouri in 1984 and she had the set. I was so excited. I statred with a 4 place setting and starter set . Put it all in lay a way because well I didn't have 100's of dollars for a set of dishes. As I paid it off I purchased other pieces. I found my orginal recepit in one of the coffee pots that match this set. Any of the peices with writing on it like TEA is newer pieces made by Burleigh
