Blue Monday – Tea Accessories

Blue Monday is sponsored by our gracious Sally at Smiling Sally.

In looking around for a blue topic, I noticed a blue tea bag holder and thought, “Ahh, blue tea accessories...” I enjoy drinking and serving tea, so I did find several blue accessories. So here we go…

First is a tea caddy tin, which I bought at a local antique shop. It is for Earl Grey tea, one of the most popular black tea blends. It is printed with the name ‘Earl Grey’ and features Oriental style scenes having to do with the cultivation of tea.

The little caddy is three inches tall and is for loose tea. The lid reads "Crabtree & Evelyn/ London/ Fine Teas."

These tea tins held tea bags for green tea, sold at Wallmart.
Just inside the kitchen door a tea towel hangs on the microwave cabinet. This linen towel is decorated with teapots.
A white tablecloth embroidered in blue, is shown folded in quarters.
A deep blue tea cozy is made of blue cotton printed in white and lighter blue flowers. It is lined in solid blue.
Here is a tea bag holder and a dessert spatula for serving tasty treats.
A set of four tea bag holders, in a teacup shape, are by Spode.
I am happy you visited today, and would enjoy reading your comment. Enjoy more Blue Monday posts at Sally’s blog, Smiling Sally.
