Vanilla Tea in a Vintage Paragon Teacup

My Sunday evening cup of tea is Harney and Sons Vanilla Comoro,
a Decaffeinated Black Tea with Vanilla.

I purchased this pretty teacup trio at a church "tabletop sale"
at Bourton-on-the-Water while visiting England
nearly 12 years ago.  If my memory is correct,
I paid 12.50 British Pounds for it.  We visited with the very nice
 ladies selling what we call "white elephant" items. 
We have wonderful memories from that trip. It was
Austin's first trip to England. He celebrated his 3rd birthday
 in a tea room. *Big Smile*

I'd love to have seen your sweet boy, sitting down in a Tea Room, and starting on that enjoyable path you all are traveling.


PS Does ANYONE do Cambric or Pearl Tea anymore?

Lovely teacup! Bourton-on-the Water is a favorite stop for us. Always a fun place to wander around with the antique shops and river running through town. Lovely memories, and a lovely cup! Haven't tried that tea yet, but it sounds delicious!

I like the Vanilla Comoro tea too, Linda. I drank all that I had; will have to get some more soon. I try not to drink anything caffienated late in the day. Like your pretty teacup too! Have a happy day!

I have the mug that matches your teacup -- but of course I like your teacup better! ;)

I think I bought a bunch of tea cozies here in this town, but avoided china.
