Is It Your Cup of Tea?

As the fabulous Coco Chanel said, “In order to be irreplaceable one must be different.”

These wise words can be applied to just about everything in this world, including teacups! Department stores have shelves and shelves replete with teacups that have the same, unoriginal printed patterns and designs. But what’s the fun in having what everyone else has? The answer is, there is none. That’s exactly why I fell in love with collecting beautifully unique pieces of art that I knew only I had the honor of owning. It’s not for everyone, but collecting teacups is definitely my cup of tea.

Tea Time

First, the fresh, herbal fragrance creates a calming aroma that stimulates your senses into a serene state. Next, the warm liquid consumes your taste buds, creating a lively effect on your tongue. Not bitter, but a pure, clean and invigorating experience that refreshes your palate. Following that first sip, it leaves your mouth watering and begging for more.

If you’re a herbal brew fanatic, like me, we can relate that our daily cup of tea is something we look forward to each day. The experience alone, of divulging into the cup of happiness, is exhilarating. However, the encounter is so much more rewarding when you’re sipping your refresher from a gorgeous teacup, like the ones pictured. That’s why I have relished collecting teacups throughout my lifetime. The time has come for me to pass on these lovely pieces, so they can continue their journey and allow someone else to appreciate their elegance.

Petite Pink Tea Cups with Gold Embellishments
 Some will argue that these cups are too beautiful to drink out of. In that case, they can simply act as an exclusive embellishment to your china display cabinet. On the other hand, others will argue that it’s a waste of an attractive, but perfectly useful cup. Well, whatever your cup of tea is, I’m sure these tea cups and matching saucers would be a great addition to your collections and treasures.
