Crown Kensington Teal Chintz

What's in your teacup today? I'd love to know. Is it something you enjoy on an everyday basis? Or did you have something in your teacup that was unique and special to the day?

My teacup this morning is a Crown Kensington called Teal Chintz. It's fine bone china from Staffordshire, England. It was a gift from a sweet friend and is one of my favorite cup and saucer sets. The cheerful colors help start my day on a positive note! Today it contains a classic Ceylon tea from the Kenilworth Estate. Called Sonata, it is a fresh with citrusy tones. A bit of milk and stevia accompany this tea to create a cup of perfection.

Today I am linking to Bernideen's Tea Time Blog where she is conducting a meme called Friends Sharing Tea.


  1. Such bold beautiful colors! Perfect way to start the day!

  2. My day never begins with tea; however, I will likely enjoy a cup of Earl Grey around three and around eight this evening I'll have a cup of chamomile. That tea cup has the most delightful combinations of color and flowers. I can see why it would be a day brightener.

  3. Lovely colors on this cup which makes one smile!

  4. What a pretty tea-cup. Deb

  5. What a stunning color. Wonderful. Nice handle too-big enough for fingers.
    My tea of choice is always Earl Grey or if in the evening, Chamomile.
    Enjoy your gorgeous cup!

  6. That is one gorgeous teacup. My cup had Glenburn Estate First Flush Darjeeling.

  7. Beautiful tea cup. Today it's honey and lemon with hot water to help my throat feel better.

  8. Beautiful teacup! Love the pretty colors. I'm having lavender rose pomegranite tea this week.
