Tea Sets, of course.
We have a silver set from my mother. We don’t always get it out, as sometimes we like juice or lemonade instead of tea. But, it is lovely, so we leave it on the table while we enjoy our lemonade in fine china!
This teapot is hands-down my favorite teapot –the original Brown Betty. I simply can do no wrong when I’m using this teapot. It just seems to make fantastic tea!
My daughter purchased her very own tea set that she loves! You can find it at the English Tea Store.
This teapot is awesome if you want to see the color of your tea or you have a “blooming tea.”
And then, we just have some teapots that are fun.
Poetry Teatime Books
Obviously, you must have poetry books if you are going to have Poetry Teatime. We use everything from silly poems to classics. We’ve found fun in poems for two-voices and backward poems. We really love them all. Below are some of our favorite Poetry Teatime book resources.
My youngest rarely comes to Poetry Teatime without a Shel Silverstein book. Some of our favorites are Where the Sidewalk Ends and Every Thing On It. But, in a pinch, any Shel Silverstein book will do.
Our poetry shelves are filled with fantastic books, but one of the most beautiful poetry teatime resources was published by Brave Writer. It comes out nearly every teatime.
Finding teas that the kid’s like is a bit of a challenge. In fact, sometimes we drink lemonade or hot chocolate. There are a few teas that have become standbys for us. These are our poetry teatime resources for tea:
Of course, the most important part of Poetry Teatime is sharing it with people you love, whether they be in your dining room or across the country.
A cup of tea, a sweet treat, and a good book are always favorites of mine!
