I drink a lot of delicious freshly brewed leaf tea,and I do like fine bone china! But I have fine bone china Mugs,as a cup is not nearly big enough for me! I have a gorgeous Wedgewood one and a stunning Coalport Countryware one.
Tea deserves to be enjoyed!
P.S. Bought a big cup & saucer from T2, as now have time to really enjoy a 'cuppa' instead of rushing!
It's a good size & I enjoy every drop, usually with a fresh 'Lammie', or a couple of biscuits, or a serving of lovely little mini-sandwiches, So I can pretend it's my 'High Tea'. Lol!
One of my daughters gave me a beautiful antique cream & gold coloured patterned tea cup & saucer set a couple of Christmasís ago, but I find I always use a large mug for my afternoon tea, as it holds more tea of cause, but I do see it every day when I open the kitchen cupboard!
