A few weeks ago I started a new illustrated blog series solely based on my love of tea, when the lovely people behind whittards tea contacted me to illustrate some of there selection of tea and pretty cups I thought this was the perfect opportunity to doodle some pretty tea cups and recommend some good tea. So without further a due, here is my first installment of whittards tea and fine china.
As I said in my last Tea post, I only drink Decaf tea due to awful caffeine induced migraines so when I discovered they create a decaf version I fell in love. I am a PG tips girl, so branching out with tea fills we with way more excitement then it probably should. The Decaffeinated tea from Whittards is delightful, i have my tea with 2 sugars and a splash of milk, it had a good strong taste to it and being able to drink it out of the blue Chintz cup and saucer set made the whole experience of drinking the tea feel very special. The tea cup itself looks really dainty, it is but it is really well made and very sturdy, being clumsy fool I am prone to the occasional heart breaking moment of breaking my favorite mug, so I will do my best to be careful with the fine bone china gem.
The Blue Chintz reminds me of my mum antique fine bone china tea cups, it's a lot more dainty then my thick anthropologie mugs, its the perfect tea cup to have at a tea party...anyone fancy inviting me to one?
After a long and tiring day at work one of my little pleasures is sitting down doing a few doodles and drinking a good old brew, the Decaffeinated blend was so warming and comforting during this horrible weather. If like me you can't consume too much caffeine I highly recommend the Whittards Decaffeinated Breakfast tea, also the packaging is so pretty, and matches the Blue Chintz cup.... that's the artist in me that loves to co-ordinate colours. Thanks Whittards until next week I would love to know if you've tried any whittards tea or if you have a favorite tea cup or mug?
