Green Tea On St. Paddy's Day?


Nope,
I'm having Harney and Sons Irish Breakfast Tea
especially on these cold, blustery days.


St.Patrick's Day Tea


I love my Belleek teapot and teacups.
The fun shamrock shape of the cups. 
The shell design on the teapot and cups and the wonderful harp handles.


St. Patrick's Day Tea


Fine Parian China -- so delicate and yet so strong!



St Patrick's Day Tea


Harney and Sons Irish Breakfast Tea is 100% Assam from India.
It has good body and can take milk (the way the Irish like it) and sugar.
Subtle notes of malt.
Not bad with chocolate (or vanilla) cupcakes!


I'm joining several tea parties:

Wishing YOU well, much joy and a wonderful cup of tea.

Snap, I just love your Belleek teacup and teapot! They look very fragile and yet strong enough to hold hot tea. A very pretty setting with the cupcakes and thank you for sharing with us and joining me for tea.

Blessings,
Sandi

Wow, that teapot is terrific! I really like Beleek, and was really excited when I found a tea cup just like yours. The harp handle is great. Lovely pictures.
