Dictionary of Tea— A Fun English Mug


I found two of these Dunoon  "A Dictionary of Tea" mugs in a kitchen shop
 in the village of Broadway in the Cotswolds of England on our 2008 family trip.
I brought one home to my friend, Mary, and kept this one.

Each teapot depicts a different "tea' word

chasit-tea and craft-tea

 oddit-tea, and p.m. tea
calamit-tea and equalit-tea

treat-tea and simplicit-tea

bligh-tea and frui-tea

"A Dictionary of Tea" on the handle

 A flirt-tea teapot

And, last of all... emp-tea

Love your mugs, Linda.

Wouldn't it have been cute to put the Emp-tea on the bottom inside the mug? Thanks for sharing!

Dunoon makes my favorite mugs! I LOVE them! That mug was a great seller. They have discontinued most of my favorite English cottage design mugs. Sigh...but this is perfect for Teacup Tuesday...if it has tea in it it's a teacup even without a saucer. I'm drinking Ty Phoo from a Dunoon cottage mug right now. Slurp!
Thanks for sharing!

I love-love-love this mug! I was hoping you were about to say you were giving away the second one, but Mary is such a good friend to you I'm glad she's the one who received it!

As I was thinking about my comment, I read Marilyn's and wanted to say exactly the same thing! It must be because we share the same name! ♥♫
