KNOWING YOUR TEA STYLE: English, Contemporary or Asian?

I love English Cottage Style tea!  I didn't have to tell you that if you read my blog - but I did.  I also realize that their are many who love Asian style and others are love contemporary designed teapots and even their tea food items are fashioned contemporary.  Many of the hotel tea rooms in London are quite contemporary.

If you are just getting interested in tea - you might want to give this some thought!  Especially before you invest your dollars in several different directions.  I am new to Pinterest and have to figure it out but it looks like a great place to help you find the styles you are passionate about!

I know that I do love English Cottage Style!  Today is Tea Time Tuesday With Sandi and also A Delightsome Life With Kathy so I hope you can enjoy their blog parties as well.

Join me tomorrow for TEA IN THE GARDEN!

I like old-fashioned style. Both the garden and in my home. Mäniskor around me say that I have an English cottage garden. My nephew want is in the Asian Japanese style. The flavors are different. I like chintz pattern on your china. Sweet with gold knot on the teapot. I wish you a great week! Zinnia

I'm with you Bernideen, English Cottage Style - a little less formal but perfect for me.
You have such a nice collection of china.

Bernideen, I am in love with your chintz! Is there anything more charming than the English Cottage style? I am loving it as well. The teapot is gorgeous!
I haven't tried Pinterest yet although my DIL asked me to get into it. I'm not that brave, I'm afraid and I've heard some negative things about it too. Think I'll stick to blogging for now. Thank you for sharing your beautiful tea pretties with us today and have a lovely day.

Oh, I'm with you - English cottage is my style, too! I'm an Anglophile...love all things British!

Hi Bernideen,
I love your style, Bernideen. You have always stunning tea sets to share. I love those with flowers on it. Japanese or Chinese is nice, too. But not for every day.
Best greetings, Johanna

I love your chintz teacup - gorgeous - I think English Country Cottage - as much as one can do in the South - is kind of my style - with a little formality thrown in! I hope you have a wonderful day - I appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,

Ooo! Bernideen - I am all over that English cottage style tea! Your sprinkling of tea things are a delight to look upon - and transporting to thought of genteel repasts in a serene and beautiful setting. A good thought here - knowing your tea style!
