Afternoon Tea Delight!

Yesterday I spent most of the afternoon drinking tea, feet up, slippers on, watching Disney films and gossiping with friends. What a lovely way to spend a Sunday!

A friend of mine hosted the day and between three of us we came up trumps with a gorgeous tea set, a fantastic carrot cake and selection of Mauritian teas. Lets face it, if you’re going to have a tea party, you’ve got to have a selection!

I have six boxes of tea which I bought on honeymoon during a trip to a tea plantation. There’s Earl Grey, Vanilla, Coconut, Tropical Fruits and Mint and of course.. good old normal tea too. Bois Cheri is an amazing place in Mauritius – a tea plantation set around a beautiful lake in lush green surroundings. We got to see the tea making process in the factory before heading to the panoramic restaurant to try all the different teas. Of course I had to buy some to bring home – and thank goodness I did as they made our tea party complete!

My friend missanniebean is the proud owner of this beautiful tea set. It’s made by ‘Katie Alice‘ and is called ‘Ditsy Yellow Floral’ – its absolutely beautiful, fine bone china and very vintage. In all, right up my street! I am very jealous of her, especially because she has the full set –  2 tier cake stand, teapot, milk jug, sugar bowl and four three piece teacup, saucer and side plate sets.You can get your own online at Creative Tops – what perfect Christmas pressies!
