No home is complete without a tea set. Even if you’re not a tea drinker yourself, the chances are that at some point you’ll have visitors who would appreciate a nice cup of tea. Of course you can just use any old mugs and tea bags but using a proper tea set greatly enhances enjoyment of the tea and will turn you from a neglectful hostess into a domestic goddess with no effort on your part!
There are many different types of tea set available but china tea sets are one of the most popular as they come in many different styles and designs and they range in price from inexpensive for a basic set to an investment for a fine bone china set. It’s up to you how much you decide to choose but a really nice tea set will last for many years if properly cared for and can be an item that makes you really proud of your home.
If traditional is your style, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting designs. There are many beautiful sets based on traditional shapes and patterns such as floral designs and the original blue and white china design. A set of beautiful traditional china tea cups with a matching tea pot will evoke images of English country cottages and cream teas on the lawn in the summer and look great on display to brighten up a dull corner of your kitchen.
For more modern designs there’s also a wide variety to choose from. You can pick designs in bright colors to match the décor of your home or kitchen, or choose a whimsical design on a theme like Alice in Wonderland or your favorite animal. Some of these modern designs often come in fun shapes – a square tea pot is a great design feature that is sure to be commented on in your home.
