Tea On Tuesday: New Tea Cups


As you know I love tea and I adore all the 'accoutrements' that belong to tea - tea pots, silver spoons, sugar bowls and creamers, pretty plates.  I'm always on the look out for 'new to me' tea things.


Yesterday I found a two red transferware teacups.  I have several blue ones, and a Friendly Village teacup, but though I love red, I've never found any that I wanted to purchase.



The first one is by Woods





I was drawn to the boarder of the saucer and inside the teacup, especially that sweet scalloped edge.

The cup shows a castle on a hill with a bridge in the foreground, 

but the saucer shows a sweet cottage and well, with a windmill in the background.





 The second cup is Thomas Muches & Sons

It has the same cottage and people on the cup as on the saucer



The boarder inside the cup is the same as on the saucer.

I like both of them very much.  I also am trying Stash tea 'Breakfast in Paris.'  I've enjoyed their 'Christmas in Paris' tea and this tea, 'Breakfast in Paris' is very nice, too.  Black tea, lavender, vanilla, begomot.


A nice way to start my day!


I'm sharing at Tuesday Cuppa Tea

and will link with Bernideen's party later this week!

  3. I just love red transferware, and those are great examples! Isn't tea fun? I am on an Irish tea binge at the moment. I have had the Breakfast In Paris and it is quite nice. Have a lovely week and thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  10. What a great find! I only have blue and white transferwares so I've always admired the red and white transferwares shared by bloggers.

    (I will not start collecting red transferware. I will not start collecting red transferware. I will not start collecting red transferware.)

    Trying to resist temptation. ;)

  15. Red transfer ware is my favourite, but I agree ...It takes a while to actually find the pieces that you love... I’ve been holding onto two gorgeous "redware" plates for years and I’m still looking for a cup and saucer to catch my eye... Looks like you found them ( ha Ha)and .. the tea’ Breakfast in Paris "sounds absolutely delicious..I’m going to look for it... You’re right what a lovely way to start the morning... incidentally, Your Royal Albert teapot nestles quite comfortably amongst your teasets... I’ll be over for tea shortly ...HUGS

  17. Deanna, I have your OCR teapot but NO red transferware. It's so pretty, but I limit myself to the blue and white I started years ago so that my genetic china addiction doesn't go completely out of control! :D

  18. Dear Deanna:
    Oh how wonderful. We do love transferware and what great pieces you found. Red is never wrong! I do think it looks pretty with your Old Country Roses teapot too. Thanks for sharing your treasures!
