Collecting Bone China Tea Mugs

I found these six Roy Kirkham Fine Bone china mugs, one at a time, at Home Goods, Marshall's and TJ Maxx for $4.99 each.  I was taught very early in my tea education classes that tea tastes better when you drink it from Bone China. Is that true?  I'm not sure, but I certainly enjoy the thrill of shopping for, and finding English Bone China!

I love your bone china mugs and have some from this set in my collection as well. I have made it a habit to serve tea to guests when they come to our home. The bone china tea mugs are a good transition piece, since sometimes men are intimidated by a porcelain cup and saucer. When on a casual visit, they seem to feel more comfortable with the less formal approach to tea.

Oh those are nice! I have bone china mugs. In fact we just bought a rack with hooks so I can hang some of them up.

I think that tea would taste better in a bone china cup. Just my personal opinion but if I am gonna have tea I want to feel 'elegant'.

Hi! I am your newest follower! I love having tea with friends too! I am going to have to read the books in the tea mystery series. You are the second blogger I know to mention them.

I have two of these lovely mugs and really like them. They offer the comfortable feel of a mug, yet are pretty enough for guests. I think I'll need to be on the lookout for some more.

Love your mugs. On a tea discussion group there is something about china vs. glass and it seems that those who have compared the two - same tea, time, etc. that china wins for black and oolongs.
