I can totally relate to the shopper's remorse! Oftentimes, my shopping indecisiveness becomes another buyer's gain who will snatch the tea set while I'm still debating (Do I really need it? Where will I store it?) over the purchase...
Many a teawares have gotten away from me because I put them back on the shelf. A recent example of my failure to follow Karen's Cottage and Castle mantra, "Get it or regret it!" occurred a few weeks ago at a church rummage sale where tea sets were on sale for only $2! I was "thinking" about a couple of Aynsley teacups which quickly got snagged by other shoppers. D'OH!
I did bring home one tea set: a mismatched Royal Albert teacup and snack plate.
The snack plate's Royal Albert design is called "Memory Lane" and is decorated with blue and purple flowers.
The teacup's Royal Albert's "Brigadoon" pattern features thistles--the national flower of Scotland. I thought that the teacup and plate's blue flowers blended beautifully together.
I also tried to exercise some restraint when David's Teas released their fall teas collection last month. Because I have a sweet tooth and love the combo of chocolate and peanut butter, I had to sample the new Peanut Butter Cup herbal tea.
This nutty dessert tea was definitely a sweet treat!
The Peanut Butter Cup tea is also delicious with milk!
What's the strangest tea that you've ever tried?
