The perfect cup of tea


For as long as I can remember I have always enjoyed a nice cup of tea. I inherited my love of tea from my mum who taught me that black tea should be drunk medium weak to enjoy its flavours. Being dairy free means that I enjoy all my teas milk free. I have tried on a couple of occasions to add milk but I just can’t bring myself to drink it. I use my blog to share my tea experiences with a new tea review every Tuesday. My mum decided in her wisdom that my tea reviews would look more inviting if undertaken in a nice cup and saucer. So she bought me this wonderful teacup set for my blog. I love my teacup and it makes a drinking a cup of tea a pleasurable experience. I frequently receive many comments about it and asked where can be purchased from. Sadly, it is getting a little overused so my mum has been on the hunt for a new teacup for my blog. So here is the new addition to my teacup collection that will hopefully soon be making an appearance on my blog.

    I love a cuppa but also drink my tea milk free. In fact I can’t remember the last time I had normal tea with milk, our cupboard just has a million different green teas! Thanks for linking for #marvmondays x

      Hi, It’s nice to know that I am not the only one who enjoys their tea milk free. I’m glad that I’m not the only one who has far too much tea๐Ÿ˜Š.

    Aww, it’s so sweet that your mom got you these especially for your tea reviews!

    Lovely tea cups! Im a big fan of tea too….in fact, time to put the kettle on….#SharingtheBlogLove

      I hope that you managed to enjoy a nice cup of tea. thanks for stopping by, Chloe.

    I love your cups and saucers! I am also a massive tea fan. My preferred cup is more medium and I do have milk in it. I insist on leaving the leaves to brew though rather than just chucking more tea in it (like when you buy a cup from Starbucks and they just put in an uber bag to get it ‘brewed’ in about 10 seconds!). I’d rather not drink a cup of tea than drink a bad one. It’s meant cutting back on tea since becoming a mum though – haha! #SharingTheBlogLove

      Thank you my mum spoils me. It’s worth saving for a quality tea that can be enjoyed and appreciated.

  16. May 18, 2017 / 11:54 am

    What a really lovely, straightforward thing to do. I love it. That teacup is beautiful too. #sharingthebloglove

    • May 18, 2017 / 4:53 pm

      Thank you I am spoilt.

    I don’t drink tea or coffee but I LOVE your cup and saucer! There’s just something so delicate about drinking from a beautifully decorated tea cup! #sharingthebloglove

    • May 18, 2017 / 4:52 pm

      There sure is it just makes for a much more enjoyable experience.

  18. May 18, 2017 / 3:21 pm

    I agree with your mum is does look better in a pretty cup and saucer. Seeing these reminds of me of my nan who had a gorgeous set. Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

    • May 18, 2017 / 4:52 pm

      It also seems to taste better as well. My nan also had a lovely tea set.

  19. May 18, 2017 / 7:10 pm

    Love the tea cups! They’re so pretty! #MarvMondays

  20. May 19, 2017 / 10:05 am

    I’m sure tea tastes better from a pretty cup and saucer set! I have lots of beautiful random ones that I collected over the years, and also inherited a really cute set from my Grandma. Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

    • May 22, 2017 / 4:45 pm

      I bet the set from your grandma is the best one.

  21. May 19, 2017 / 12:44 pm

    I find the right or wrong cup can make or break a cup of tea! #marvmondays

    • May 22, 2017 / 4:45 pm

      It sure does ๐Ÿ˜Š.

  22. May 22, 2017 / 8:58 am

    I like it strong, with skim milk, it’s how I was brought up, in the North. And it’s very difficult to get it like that here in Alaska.

    • May 22, 2017 / 4:40 pm

      You can’t beat. Good old fashioned builders tea. Maybe you need to ship some over ๐Ÿ˜Š.
