This lovely china teapot features a lovely bird scene and the delicate teacups carry the theme out. What a wonderful set to serve a favorite brew to a friend on a February morning. This was another Marshall’s find–you know I love that store and they have some great buys on lovely teapots!
Did you notice those tea packages? These came from a tea shop I found when I visited Fort Worth. The Spice and Tea Exchange offers a large variety of teas and sniffing the tea is definitely encouraged!!! I walked away with a packet of Black Chocolate Tea and Mint-Chilla Chai-Nilla Tea which is a blend of green pu-eeh tea, vanilla, peppermint, ginger, cinnamon, and licorice root. All different but all wonderful to try.
“Ephraim lifted the top of the trunk. Neatly stacked were mementoes from what seemed like hundreds of journeys. Right on top was an etching of the Eiffel tower next to an African mask that looked at him with surprised eyes. He reached in a little deeper and unearthed a small teapot decorated with blue drawings just like the kind his grandmother collected and kept in a locked china cabinet.”
