Tea Tuesday : Alice in wonder land tea and tea set give away with whittards

You wouldn’t believe how hard it was to illustrate the Alice in Wonder Land Tea set, due to the fact the tea cup is white, I should of put something colourful in the background!! I’m such a stickler for perfection!! Talking of perfection i just love the perfect delicate detail on this mug, all around the saucer edge and the rim of the tea cup are these beautiful delicate little drawings of, cats, mice, chess pieces, hearts and tea pots just to name a few. It is so freaking cute!

When I infused my Strawberry and kiwi fruit tea the colour contrast was just beautiful! You can tell I am a massive Tea Geek, chatting about colour contrast! The fruit Tea itself was a little different to the flavors I had tried before it has a sort of kick of kiwi at the end which is really refreshing. I was obsessed with Fruit teas whilst at was at uni, i think its because I lived with a load of vegans and vegetarians..yes they got me hocked total peer pressure…that I missed sipping beautiful tasting and smelling teas!  I thought the strawberry part was rather English sounded and worked well with the Alice in Wonder Land theme.

    I'm more of a coffee gal but I would love to try the strawberry and kiwi tea, it sounds yummy! x

  2. March 18, 2014 / 7:18 am

    Tea in the summer… I love that you can get refreshing teas for those breezy but warm days. Besides, I love tea all the time, not just in summer… So I can't really comment 😉

    I loved iced tea. When we were road-tripping around the American south it was so amazing to stop at gas stations and fill up one of those crazy enormous cups full of iced tea and then carry on. (Although we had to mix the sweet and unsweet because the sweet was like teeth-rottingly sweet!). I love that it's their staple drink of choice there, alongside homemade lemonade. We always try and recreate it in the Summer and try and have a jug in our fridge full of iced tea, we made one using rhubarb flavoured redbush once which was delicious!

  4. March 18, 2014 / 7:50 am

    I work long hard hours and tea of all kinds gets me through the day. It keeps me destressed, comforted and happy. Lovely giveaway ♡

  5. March 18, 2014 / 8:21 am

    I love tea all year ! I am a lover of earl grey and ceylon tea with a teaspoon of sugar and a dash of milk I think its the teacups and mugs that I love to put the tea in that really makes it an event for me too ! Which one do I choose ! I am new to fruit teas but I love sitting on my steps to my house watching the world go by with a fruit tea and a good romantic book ! Ems x

  6. March 18, 2014 / 9:36 am

    you know what – someone once told me that when it's boiling hot outside, if you drink hot tea, it will cool you down!? it's obviously more of a psychological thing, but it tends to work for me in the summer!

  7. March 18, 2014 / 9:41 am

    I Love Tea!, I Can't drink enough of it. You can keep coffee that's not for me but a nice cup of tea wins hands down

  8. March 18, 2014 / 9:56 am

    I love tea and always make it in a pot and drink it from a china cup and saucer. I hate the thought of just dunking a tea bag in a mug! Tea tastes so much nicer served properly! Thank you for the lovely giveaway!

  14. March 18, 2014 / 10:38 am

    I love oolong tea and green tea in the summer – they're a bit lighter than black tea, so perfect for the warmer days 🙂

  15. March 18, 2014 / 10:39 am

    There is nothing better than sitting down to a pot of tea and something sweet. To say I love tea is an understatement!

  26. March 18, 2014 / 12:10 pm

    I cant get over how stunning the design is, it reminds me of the old fashioned silhuoette cameos in black and white 😀 I would display this set very proudly on my shelf

  27. March 18, 2014 / 12:33 pm

    i am a big fan of tea 🙂

  28. March 18, 2014 / 12:33 pm

  29. March 18, 2014 / 1:24 pm

    I love cups of tea – morning afternoon and night!

  34. March 18, 2014 / 2:20 pm

    Tea is just one of my favourite things in this world, and your illustration of that Alice in Wonderland cup is so stunning Ella! x


  35. March 18, 2014 / 3:25 pm

    I really like fruit teas, I think they are great for summer because once you've brewed it you can drink it hot or cold. I like making iced tea too! You also can't beat drinking a nice cup of tea outside in the sun, either sitting in the garden, having tea from a flask on the beach, or even at a picnic!

  36. March 18, 2014 / 3:31 pm

    I love tea 🙂 Always great to have whilst studying just to keep your feet on the ground 🙂

  37. March 18, 2014 / 4:32 pm

    sorry I entered before I realized it was UK only! Lovely giveaway regardless 🙂 x

  38. March 18, 2014 / 4:36 pm

    I love a big mug of tea on an evening after work snuggled on the sofa, it's relaxing, soothing and comforting, nothing beats it!

  39. March 18, 2014 / 5:14 pm

    Alice in Wonderland and tea is the best combination imaginable! Two of my favourite things : )

  40. March 18, 2014 / 5:18 pm

    What a gorgeous prize! Love tea but not tried strawberry and kiwi, it would be perfect for the summer!

    There's nothing in the life that a good cuppa can't make (even slightly) better. I love how, when all else fails, us Brits always stick the kettle on. Can't beat it!

    If I'm lucky I get to have one cup of hot tea a day. Most of the time it gets cold as I am looking after two children under 5.

    Can you drink too much?? I drink it constantly! Love IT!!!

  45. March 18, 2014 / 7:45 pm

    Your illustration is very cute! I am myself huge tea fan, but some English purisst friends of mine said that flavoured tea are not tea and I strongly disagree. But being french, my opinion wouldn't count so much 😛 But hey the hell with the purist I just drank a lovely caramel tea!

  46. March 18, 2014 / 8:34 pm

    Can't start the day without having a cuppa tea in bed.. I love a good brew…

  47. March 18, 2014 / 8:36 pm

    Your illustration is lovely! I love tea no matter what the season or the weather – there is nothing better than a cup of tea and a chocolate biccy to make everything right! x

  48. March 18, 2014 / 9:38 pm

    I love tea, but have to have my favorite tea shipped in from the states and every cup reminds me of home

  49. March 18, 2014 / 10:13 pm

    I'm a total tea addict. Always have a selection of fruit teas as well as green tea and standard tea bags in my kitchen

  50. March 18, 2014 / 10:28 pm

    Love my tea, its got to be made in a teapot and drunk from a bone china mug. My children have left home now, but I gave each of them a little teapot and mug so I can enjoy tea at their houses. Have I gone too far?

  51. March 19, 2014 / 1:45 am

    I am a huge tea lover – from builders to green to fruit ones. The only one I don't like is Chamomile which is a shame as I know how it helps with stress relief 🙁

  52. March 19, 2014 / 8:39 am

    I am a massive tea fan, can't live without it!

  53. March 19, 2014 / 10:06 am

    Tea is the best drink all year round but in the summer, I particularly love fruity teas because they're refreshing, light and make me feel healthy whether it's hot or iced tea! Yummy.

    Thanks for the opportunity to enter this comp and loving your art work Ella :3

  58. March 19, 2014 / 1:25 pm

    My favourite thing about tea, especially in the summer; is sitting out in our garden with a pot of tea and my mum, in the sunshine. I love those times.

  59. March 19, 2014 / 1:59 pm

    it is so nice to have a fantastic cup of tea after a day out/holiday or any occasion as it perks me up

  60. March 19, 2014 / 4:23 pm

    I drink green tea and always out of a china cup with a saucer

  61. March 19, 2014 / 6:28 pm

    I love a good strong cup of English Breakfast tea in the winter but occasionally I will try a few flavoured teas in the Spring/Summer. The tea cup and saucer looks so adorable!
    Lots of love,

  66. March 20, 2014 / 10:03 pm

    im tea total and must drink 15 cups a day i don't take sugar ad i think that takes away the taste of the tea i like it strong made in a tea pot and its so much nicer in a lovely cup and saucer like this

  67. March 21, 2014 / 12:40 am

    at work…i drink about 8-9 cups a day its insane!!

  73. March 22, 2014 / 9:05 pm

    sitting having a cuppa now watching the voice – so much better than a beer

  74. March 22, 2014 / 9:12 pm

    I love a cuppa tea as it reminds me of going to my grans! I remember her tea cosy well…..always reminded me of the ones you put over loo rolls!

  75. March 22, 2014 / 9:14 pm

    I love moments with a cup of jasmine tea 🙂

  76. March 22, 2014 / 9:34 pm

    I love a cuppa, one I'm caffeinated I move on to some peppermint to get me through the work day xx

  77. March 22, 2014 / 9:50 pm

    I LOVE the whole tea-making thing! You know, the playful splash of the tea as it hits the bottom of the cup; the thrill of adding the milk, and watching it settle for a moment, before it filters slowly down through the cup, changing the colour from dark brown to…a lighter brown. Perching an optional biscuit on the saucer, like a proud soldier standing to attention beside a giant…cup of tea.
    OK, I took this from 'father ted' but it sums it up pretty well! tea is awesome

  78. March 23, 2014 / 11:10 am

    Tea keeps you alive. I have to have at least 5 cups a day.

  79. March 23, 2014 / 11:54 am

  81. March 23, 2014 / 1:16 pm

    I love tea it is my most favourite drink in fact until I have had at least two cups in the morning I am not even human. 🙂

  82. March 23, 2014 / 2:02 pm

    I love a cup of tea in the evening with a bar of chocolate once the kids are in bed. It's part of my routine now.

  83. March 23, 2014 / 2:06 pm

    I'm loving Green Tea with Jasmine at the moment 🙂 x

  84. March 23, 2014 / 3:58 pm

    I love the smell of earl grey – reminds me of quiet rainy sunday mornings at home with my parents L(

  85. March 23, 2014 / 4:51 pm

    I love tea, but it has to be made properly, in a pot, not a mug – and bone china just makes it taste all the better

  86. March 23, 2014 / 5:13 pm

    I love freshly poured tea, usually traditional English Breakfast

  87. March 23, 2014 / 6:10 pm

    I'm not a fan of your bog standard tea with milk and sugar but I love nothing more than a nice, refreshing floral tea in the Summer time.
    Sitting outside in the sunshine with a light, floral tea is just pure perfection. x

  95. March 24, 2014 / 12:19 am

    I live on tea – I normally drink 'normal tea', medium strength, no sugar, drop of milk. I drink it from getting up to going to bed – around 15 cups a day :/ I also drink a lot of pomegranate green tea and peppermint tea, although At Christmas though, I love Whittards Mulled Wine tea, it's amazing!

    Tea is my favourite drink, I could not live without it… It helps me to wake up in the morning, and I drink it through the day and evening. My mum used to give it to me warm and milky in my bottle when I was a toddler and I have loved it ever since (to the point where I still have it relatively milky now) and I love having a fresh brew from tea leaves in a quaint cafe with a slice of cake!

    love green tea, flavour green tea is the best . Revives me in the morning and never need painkillers the morning after night before

  106. March 24, 2014 / 3:40 pm

    I love green tea with lemon. It's supposed to be good for me…not sure whether it is, but I like it so I drink it 🙂

    By the way, did you know that the tweet in the rafflecopter link says this is to win a blue chintz tea cup and not an alice in wonderland one? Is that just to check that we are paying attention? LOL
