Taylors Scottish Breakfast Tea
It may say "Taylors Scottish Breakfast Tea" on the box, but The Husband and I had it before bed recently. Nice full-bodied tea. We drink tea black, so I can't say how well it would hold up to milk or sugar or lemon.
The tea pot is Johnson Brothers Regency. This was our casual china for years and years until we bought our own dining room furniture which was slate topped in a black wrought iron frame. The white swirl pattern of the china didn't look good at all on the new table. We've packed up everything except the teapot and the salt and pepper shakers; we still use those.
The cup is one of a pair I bought at a church rummage sale years ago. On the bottom of the cup it says, "Potpourri Designs, Pansies & Bows, 1994 Shao Wei Liu, Made in Korea". The daughter has the other one. She uses hers year 'round, but I only get mine out to use during the winter when pansies are blooming.
