Which tea are you?

I saw this image on Facebook today which a tea addict friend posted.  For my next BIG birthday I would like to have a Mad Hatter's Tea Party.  I have it all planned in my head and part of it includes a table with each setting a different pattern of fine china.  And of course lots and lots of assorted tea-pots of different teas.  I dream of starting to collect the china one service at a time at markets, charity shops and other bargain outlets.  I won't even mind the occasional chip as the more character the better!  I think I'd better start soon ... :D



I tracked down the source of the image to the Artist and Illustrator  Helen L Smith.  It is well worth a look and she even has embroidery kits!  I needed a little cheer today and I thought that some of you could too.  So which is your favourite tea?

Enjoy,
Chipper

P.S.  I must add that I had an altogether different picture in my mind for 'p.m. tea' and it certainly had nothing to do with the afternoon/evening!  If you know what I mean ...  ;)

  4. Hi Chipper. It's good to be catching up with you after being away. It was so nice to see that photo in the Scavenger Hunt post! Then I scrolled further on down and found the post about the job...does that mean you are on the lookout for a new opportunity? Hope you find something soon

  6. How adorable is that? I am partial to flirt-tea because of the pink (really, that's why). Of course, I am wondering why she didn't include flirt-tea's friend, naugh-tea!!
