Tea Cup and Saucer Sets for Every Tea Drinking Occasion

Did Shakespeare not say, ‘tea cups and saucers doth maketh the tea’? No? Then perhaps he never experienced the pure joy of drinking the best quality loose leaf teas from the most exquisite, finely crafted T2 tea cups and saucers – a tragedy at the very least.

From daily desktop cuppas to afternoon tea party pomp and ceremony and night-time soothing sips, tea cups and saucers form the basis of every wonderful tea-drinking moment – along with the tea of course!

Oooh-la-la it’s time for tea party fun! What better way to show off your exquisite T2 tea sets than by hosting a tea party for your tea-drinking besties? Create a feast for the eyes and tickle those tea loving tastebuds with:

  • Whiter than white table cloths.
  • Your best teapots, tea infusers or tea strainers.
  • Matching tea cup and saucer sets complete with tiny teaspoons.
  • Milk jugs and sugar bowls.
  • A selection of the finest loose leaf teas, perhaps French Earl Grey, English Breakfast and Chai
  • The prettiest side plates and cake forks.
  • Three or four-tiered cake stands piled high with triangle sandwiches, miniature scones and delicious sweet treats.
  • Accessorise with flowers, greenery and napkins.

How to set a table with a cup and saucer?

When it’s time to crook the pinky finger and pop on the pearls the occasion will call for correct placement of the cups and saucers on the table. Etiquette says the cup and saucer shall sit on the right side at the top of the table setting with the handle of the cup facing the three o’clock position.

Tea cup and saucer gift sets

Always the perfect gift for tea lovers, choose:

  1. Iconic or special edition T2 Tea For One sets if you want a gorgeous gift for someone special on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, birthday or any occasion.
  2. Tea For Two sets for a looming anniversary, engagement, Valentine’s Day or a wedding.

How to wrap a tea cup and saucer?

If you’re a member of the T2 Tea Society we’ll include complementary gift wrapping but if not, wrap the teacup and saucer individually in plenty of tissue paper before gift-wrapping together.
