The idea of tea is a concept that takes many different forms to many different people. Not only meaning the reviving hot drink made with tea leaves - or more commonly with tea bags - the name also lends itself to various meals. Tea breaks in the mid-morning and mid-afternoon usually consist of a light meal alongside the hot drink. An alternate evening meal called tea, usually served between 5pm and 7pm is more of a full meal, and can almost be an alternative term for dinner.
Both drink and meal can be beautifully highlighted through the use of attractive and elegant kitchen and dining items. The Chelsea Collection by Sara Miller is a beautiful method of doing exactly this. Tea and cakes are able to be served in fantastic style with this amazing collection of plates, mugs and cake slices.
The above Sara Miller Chelsea Collection Cake Plates are a set of four striking plates illustrated with various gorgeous wild bird forms. The sophisticated and lively 20cm plates are created from fine china by Portmeirion pottery in Stoke-on-Trent. The four different designs showcase an attractive display of colour and artfulness, ringing out the style and subtlety of nature's most marvellous creatures. Finished with 22-carat gold detailing, the plates are sure to impress any guest joining you for tea.
When serving up cake for tea, it's always important to get the portions right for each diner. The Chelsea Collection Cake Slice ensures you do this every time in perfect style. Taking the look and symmetry of pure elegance and class, the slice features avian life on its handle and includes 22 carat gold embellishments. An offering of gentle refinement, the slice is a perfect reminder of the joy of a welcome tea break.
When thinking of the hot drink of tea itself, many people are sworn devotees of the teapot, being of the firm belief that tea brewed in the pot is a richer and more defined tea experience. You can put this theory to the test in style with the Green Birds Tea Pot by Sara Miller. Displaying the amazing avian energy that defines the entire collection, the tea pot is produced from fine china and includes fantastic gold detailing. A sure sign of someone who takes the idea of tea seriously, the tea pot would make a great gift for all sorts of friends and family.
The Chelsea Collection also includes a great variety of mugs and cups. The Tea Cup and Saucer and Green Birds Mug are both beautiful receptacles for all kinds of tea making and tea drinking duties. Making the most of the incredible Sara Miller designs, they are another way to enjoy all the intricacies and delights of tea.
