Tea Time

As 417 Magazine’s Creative Director, I pull inspiration from all over. Design is a passion of mine, and when I’m out scouting products to feature in the magazine, I run across items I just have to share with our readers. With our “Let’s do Brunch” feature story coming out this month, I started thinking about tea time. It’s different from brunch, but just as social. There is something decadent about taking some time to enjoy a cup of tea the traditional way. Here are some local finds to help you set up your own high tea.

DISCLAIMER: The information in this article was fact checked and accurate at press time, but 417 Magazine cannot guarantee its accuracy indefinitely.

1. A Little Teapot: This classic teapot by Grace Tea Ware ($38.98 at Chabom Teas & Spices) is not only adorable, it's crazy affordable. With so many patterns and styles to choose from, you could start your own lovely teapot collection without breaking the bank. 

 

2. Blissful Blends: I've been collecting vintage tins for as long as I can remember. These made-to-look-old Harvey & Sons tins ($7.99 at Brown Derby International Wine Center) have me swooning. You can enjoy the unique blends and then reuse the tins for something else, like a homemade candle or cute storage. 

 

3. Tried and True: The Renaissance Gold collection by Wedgwood ($149 for a 5 piece set at Gamble's Gifts) is still the company's top-selling line, and I can see why. The style is the perfect amount of modern-meets-classic, and I love the squared-off handle.
