Tea With A Lady


Let me introduce you to Lady Carlyle by Royal Albert.
She was a gift from one of my sisters (by choice).



Tea with Lady Carlyle


A classic example of the romantic, floral tradition of Royal Albert,
Lady Carlyle draws inspiration from the extravagant rococo styles of the 18th century.

The Lady is decorated with a highly stylized floral design,
a deep pink border and elaborate gold scrollwork



Tea with Lady Carlyle


I've paired her with a teapot with roses by Grace.


Tea with Lady Carlyle


I made a pot of Harney and Sons Chinese Flower tea.
Chinese Flower is a beautiful blend of hand plucked green tea with flowers and citrus.
There is a light aroma of orange and flowers.
One sachet makes two cups of tea.
A real delight with Lady Carlyle.

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

I'm joining some tea parties in the Land of Blog:

Lady Carlyle is aptly named, a pretty and feminine design. I like your Gracie teapot too, matches perfectly with the colourful bouquet of roses.
Happy Tea day!

I love the Lady and I'm happy that have one. She is beautiful in every way. I also have the twin to your teapot and a pink vase much like your white one. Very pretty post! Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Snap,
I love, love, love Royal Albert's Lady Carlyle. She is even more pretty with your white fenton vase behind her. I have only one teacup and treasure it. Thank you for sharing such beauty! Happy Tea Day! Karen

Lady Carlyle is truly a beauty. I'm becoming more interested in teacups with elaborate patterns such as yours. I'm a big fan of Harney & Sons teas, but haven't tried the Chinese Flower Tea. Sounds like a good choice for the start of spring.

Your Lady Carlyle is such a beauty, Snap. I certainly would enjoy sipping some of your Chinese Flower tea from it. Your bouquet of roses makes for a lovely centerpiece.

Lady Carlyle is always so elegant, and your pictures so it off so beautifully! I've had Harney and Son's Chinese Flower tea and it is delicious :)

Snap,
What a gorgeous Lady Carlyle tea cup set by Royal Albert.

I am not a tea set collector, but love looking at the beautiful colors and patterns.

I do enjoy dishes. On the rare occasion I attend a household auction, dishes are my first go-to look at item. My Mom loves dishes and so did her Grandmother.
