Tea Break...

"Tea to the English is really a picnic indoors." ~ Alice Walker








Tea break...
Fine, fine Paul Smith china produced to original Victorian values.
Hand painted and glazed, the gold edging is equivalent of 22 carat gold.

Does tea taste better in a stripy?

tea should taste fabulous in those cups! and those sweet treats too! isn't tea the best meal of the day?

Little Rus said...

Stripy or not, but it's got to be proper china to make tea taste its best (and to please the eye, of course).
Love macaroons...

Oh you made me think of macarons again and so wish I had one - so many fabulous flavors and aren't they pretty - all the colors. Everything is just lovely.

Why dont' americans do something in the afternoon... the English have tea, the people of Mexico have siesta's.. why dont' we have something relaxing and enjoyable? I would like to start a new tradition.. tea in the pm! Get a favorite cup and a little pot of your favorite tea..sit back and enjoy!

Kristin said...

Lovely pics. And thanks. I think I will have a cup now.

Pop Champagne said...

I'm going to go with yes on that one. And that's the second great Alice Walker quote I read today. Love it. I think I was English in a former life.

Hi Susan,

I do like a cup of tea first thing in the morning.
Also like Paul Smith and the stripey china is lovely.
Also the macaroons look delicious.

Hugs
Carolyn

I am an absolute tea snob. It does taste better in a nice cup - and the china by Paul Smith is gorgeous.

Lily said...

Those pink macaroons make me miss paris:(
