Royal Week: Tea fit for a Queen

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

Alright, nothing is more British than a cup of tea. I love having tea with cookies. It has been a love affair since childhood fuelled happily by my London raised mom.  We are also Indian, and well, if you don't drink 5 cups a tea a day you fall out of the stereotypical norm. Anyway, if you want to add a bit of a royal touch to your little tea party look below and go nuts. Although I'm pretty sure the queen may step it up a notch or two.
Must start with the right teapot. Union Jack teapot by Emma Bridgewater available at Selfridges.
Ooh, this would do nicely full of yummy biscuits. Small Britannia Plate available at Liberty London.
Are any of you mug tea drinkers? My little sis N is...this would be for her. Available at Harvey Nichols
What is tea without biscuits right? mmmm. Available at Notonthehighstreet.

Oh and wouldn't this be the perfect spot to take a sip? My girlfriends had tea here at the Savoy years ago and ya I'm still jealous. One day. Okay time for my cup of tea now.

I also have a British mother. The fact that I dislike tea makes me a major disappointment to the family, haha. Great post!
