I am so happy: yesterday I bought my first complete tea-set!!! As many of you know, I love tea and of course I had my kettle and some cups I loved and many tea blends..but I lacked a complete tea-set..Now I am the proud owner of a matching tea-pot, six cups and saucers, sugar-basin and a little bowl for milk. They are in fine Bona china and are made by Villeroy and Boch..And it was such a bargain because they were giving it away for nearly nothing because it was the last left..and it was exactly what I was looking for..so I can't wait having my tea properly served...

How lovely to have a nice tea set. There was a time when I would have loved to have a tea set. I loved making a nice pot of tea and serving it from the pot. Heck, I don't even have a tea kettle anymore. After the old one lost its luster I never replaced it. For as much as we have tea these days it was a waste to have a kettle or tea pot for that matter. I still have a nice tea pot that has butterflies on it. I occasionally use it, but not often. If I want a cup of tea, I place a pot on the stove to heat the water.

actually, tea is one of my favourite drinks and I have always dreamt of having one complete set..not just a fine cup or a little kettle...I wanted to have it for me, for the pleasure of having it and of using it whenever I have time!!!Of course time is the very problem..but on Sunday I promise to myself..I will have my tea..as it is supposed to be served

Dear Maribea, I am glad that you found your personal favorite. It really feels great when we actually find something close to our heart. So, you are a connoisseur sweetie. Even i like Darjeeling tea - perfectly brewed and aromatic. Nothing like it and I prefer it black. So dear, when will you invite me?? PS: Miss you a lot here. You take care and do well in your writings. Love and hugs.. always yours mimpi.

How exciting. I'm not a tea drinker myself but a 'tea set' just sounds so elegant. Now a little matching plate for tea cakes and you'll be all set.

That does sound exciting. It's like having something proper for what you really enjoy, tea. So you can have guests and it will be even more enjoyable than it was before. : )

Hi my friend. I am happy for you. I am sorry you are not close from me, because I would give you nice tea set as a gift. I have more than I can use. I have tea, coffee sets and no room to keep it. I just sold some items at my garage sale last weekend, but I have so many left. All good quality items. Maybe I can keep it, so you can come over to visit my place and take it with you....:) I am doing my house remodeling now to be able to have people over...:)

Congratulations on your first tea set! I am a tea fanantic, I have more teapots than I need but not a complete teaset. I should probably sell some of my pots on eBay and use the proceeds to buy a tea service. I like the Royal Albert Country Roses pattern, myself.
