The Cutest Cuppa


After being utterly charmed by M.A.C nunu's gift of teabags, I simply had to seek out these teas for myself! Much to my delight, I can get them here in UK too. My colleague and I placed an order and I suspect that we will order more in the next few months as gifts to send back to family and friends in Japan.



Tea Forte

"Extraordinary tea, with enchanting presentation"



I wanted to try a varied selection of teas so I flung 2 of their Medium Tins into my cart. These include 6 different varieties to taste. All of which are equally delicious.



The tea bags, which they like to call " silken tea infusers" (posher tea bag) are very elegantly presented.



They make a great cuppa to cheer oneself up with. If you have guests over, you can charm them with the "tea leaf". These are gourmet whole leaf teas so I am certain that you could find a good blend to satisfy even the most fussy palate .

Do you like my tea cup?I just love the colours and shape of this cup.

Another from my cup n' saucer collection.

This one is by Wedgwood.
