My tea this morning at home. Yeah, most of the time it’s a mug and a tea bag. 

Teapot: Babington’s Tea Room Large Cat Silver Tea Pot in Rome, Italy designed by Arthur Price (made in Sheffield, England), Linen under glass rustic wooden tray by Anthropologie, Kir Royale cocktail glass and highball glass from Crate and Barrel, vintage english bone china cup and saucer by Regency  (made in England, not sure when) found at a local antique shop Reflections Antique Emporium of Cohasset, Massachusetts (a friendly retro store with incredible prices if you’re ever in New England) or buy on etsy at TheVintageTeacup, orchid from Winston Flowers, silver plated tea spoons from Salumeria Italiana in the North End of Boston, Papier Machê crown from Forever New Orleans, Darjeeling Single Estate Tea from Windsor Tea Shop, Marrakech footstool in background from HomeGoods.

I keep resisting the urge to educate a couple of my local teashops on tea storage. They both keep their teas in large glass jars that are not airtight and that are in direct sunlight. If you’re going to sell loose leaf tea do it properly! /end mini rant
