Silver Teapots and Diamond Jubilees

I recently ordered my favorite tea from Harney and Sons, Diamond Jubilee.

Harney and Sons created this tea to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth's ascension to the throne.  Earl Grey is the Queen's favorite, and this tea blends lemony bergamot with black teas and grapefruit flavors.  Delicious!  Even the tin for this tea is pretty, trimmed in the crown jewels.

This tea made me think of a commemorative English breakfast tin I picked up in 2012 :

I bought this tea tin at an English style tearoom here in Virginia that I visited with my mom, aunt, and sister to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.

I thought these two Diamond Jubilee  teas would make for a pretty tableau on my deck with my new silverplate teapot.

I bought this teapot last weekend for under $15, which I thought was a pretty good deal.  I've been wanting a little silverplate pot for picture taking purposes.

Here it is starring in its first picture!  There is fancy scrollwork on the spout and the handle, as well as on the hinged lid.


  1. What a lovely teapot.

    Don't you just adore taking tea outdoors whenever possible?

  2. Hi Carrie, thank you for your visit. I collect tea pots of all sorts, and yours is pretty too. I love your deck so perfect for afternoon teas.
    Hope you have a good weekend.


  3. Carrie, what a great find in that teapot. It is gorgeous and will provide years of service!


Thank you so much for your comment! I hope you have a wonderful day :)
