Today I would like to introduce you to this lovely tea trio by Royal Albert. It is a lovely dainty set with simple yet elegant handle and design. It is a common set that you can find online easily. I guess the set was produced in the 90's.
This set goes well with almost every type of tea. I find that sometimes it is strange to find that some tea cups do not go well with certain kind of tea but this set really can bring out the favour and character of the tea. Although this set looks common, it is the most practical one. You really cannot judge this set by its looks and you will know its place in your tea cup collection once the tea is poured into this cup.
This set of tea cup reminds me of Edith in Downton Abbey. Edith is a lady with lovely character but somehow she has been ignored by her family and kept being walked on by Mary. I think that if she can see her own value and gives herself credit, she can be more confident and does not need to live under her sister's shadow. It is just that she tries too hard to win everyone's approval that she lost her own characters. Like this Royal Albert tea trio, she really has to know her own place in the world and appreciate herself without getting everyone's attention or approvals. She needs to know that even a plain lady can be of importance. And sometimes confidence can add more charm to the person than the looks can.
Hope you have a nice weekend.
I am joining tea cup Tuesday with Terri and Martha .
