Exploring, sipping & delighting in all things tea.
Just put the kettle on. One lump or two?

Sunday, August 14, 2011


Well, we're very excited about this!! Who likes giveaways? WE DO!!

We have been talking fairly frequently about this over on our Facebook and Twitter pages and thought it was about time we had a giveaway.

And we came across these recently and thought we MUST have them...

Click the pics to see them big!

A beautiful retro 1960s/70s 'Amanda' Bone china tea cup and saucer set (of four).

We were so very keen on keeping the set ourselves. We dreamed of sitting on the decking on sunny warm mornings with our morning cuppa and poached eggs. Warming our cockles on freezing cold winter days, with warm spicey tea in these oh-so-pretty little cups, brightening up our day and making winter a little more bearable.

But then, we thought that one of you lucky lot might like them too...

(Do you like our new tea-towels from John Lewis/Waitrose?)

So, hands up who would like to be the new owners of this pretty tea cup and saucer set?

All you have to do is comment below to say you have followed this blog, followed our Twitter page, Facebook page and tweeted regarding the giveaway. Each of the follows and tweets will be an entry, so either mention us in your tweets with @isleoftea or with the hashtag #iotgiveaway.

We will be throwing in a few other tea goodies too for that lucky winner, pulled out of the hat on Tuesday 23rd of August, so you have plenty of time to join in with the giveaway and spread the word.

Good luck fellow tea-loving people.

Chin chin!

P.S. Do have a look over at Beautiful Things By Claire Mackaness who was our yesterday's T.ART and also has the most brilliant post up today about afternoon tea.

P.P.S. And don't you just love love love this post, by Claire, introducing 'Afternoon Tea in a Box' by Linda Edmonds from Cookery Angel.

How marvellous!

I must confess to falling in love with vintage china, teacups, saucers, lovely little trios', cake plates, cake stands only 18 months ago. I chose this as the theme for my wedding. Having collected some wonderful pieces, most that were used on the wedding day, I still can not part with it and long to collect more. My most recent decadent desire was a pair of antique sugar tongs... I have recently been considering the thought of using the tea cups and saucers for either wine or soup. I love Isle of Tea it is the first vintage site featured on my facebook page, because of what I had read on your twitter page and website blog.I have also named your edible Pet! I love the idea of your giveaway too!
