Harlequin and Tea
Lately, I've been looking in antique shops specifically for appealing cups and saucers, especially blue ones, without much luck. This one's a treat, though. It's Homer Laughlin Harlequin pattern in turquoise. I'd love to have one in yellow.
It came from the antique mall in Bartlett:
Not much to look at from the outside but plenty of treasures once you get inside.
The tea came from the local Chinese grocery and is quite nice. I think this'll do for a while. The box describes it as "a premium grade Oolong. This oolong is typically close to a green tea, with only a little fermentation that combines qualities of black and green teas."
