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!


  1. Isn't it fun to find new tea cups? I think your red transferware tea cups are a wonderful find. Each is so different. Happy Tea Day!

  2. beautiful find(s)!
    right now i'm enjoying Peet's Major Dickson's
    **strong** liquid life in my 'double phoenix'
    brown/cream cup/saucer.

  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!

  4. Beautiful! I’m sipping coffee in a good sturdy mug while you sip tea from your elegant little cups! The best of both worlds!

  5. How pretty your cups are. I love the red transfer ware.

  6. Oh, I love your red transferware teacups, Deanna! Red is my favourite although I do like green and blue transferware as well. I find all those patterns totally charming. Your tea sounds delicious! Wishing you a lovely week. Blessings...Sandi

  7. Wonderful teacups!I do love red transferware too!Hugs!

  8. Your new teacups are so pretty! I love red transferware too.

  9. These tea cups are so lovely Deanna...love them..just a real treasure to own!

  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.

  11. Next to blue and white, I like these best :)

  12. Sooooo pretty! I especially love the scalloped saucer!

    (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. ;)

  13. What beautiful cups. I'm not familiar with red transferware, but I'll be on the lookout in the future.

  14. Absolutely beautiful. I am not a tea drinker, but I have a tea cup addiction.

  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

  16. Pretty teacups! They do enhance a cuppa!

  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!
