And I bought another tea set. You thought I was kidding about this being an obsession, right? Oh, you are so wrong. Give me a few years and I will be the crazy teapot lady.
I found this pretty piece of work on eBay and serendipitously enough, it arrived the day before my ladies tea date so I got to test drive it immediately!
I served the tea with cocktail shrimp, fruit tarts, carnivale fritters, and other random pastries. And lots of wine. If I am being honest this was mostly a wine party with some tea at the end to sober up. So, it was kind perfect.
An afternoon drinking and conspiring with smart and funny ladies was exactly what I needed and my new blue tea set (I think it is Nippon) was a hit.
