What to Look for in a Tea Set

Aug 17, 2007
How delightful your tea is depends on two separate factors. First, you need to serve a good tasting tea that will excite the taste buds with its unique flavor. Second, in order for you and your guests to fully enjoy the tea you are serving, you need a tea set that will match the look, style and flavor of the tea. When you combine fantastic tea sets with unbelievably tasty tea, you suddenly enter a whole new world of tea drinking, a world where you do not simply drink tea - you experience all of its eccentricities.

Now, at first glance it may not seem to be that difficult to find a good tea set to go with your favorite kinds of teas. However, the difficulty level rises quickly once you actually start looking at all of the different tea sets that are out there in stores around the world. Luckily enough, there are a few questions that you should ask yourself before you go and buy any sets that you have been looking at.

To start off with, ask yourself what kind of tea you will be serving with your newly purchased tea sets. If you want green tea, chose one of the sets that are Asian influenced. If you are more of a fan of black, English style teas, then choose a European looking set that will highlight the type of tea you wish to distribute to your guests.

Secondly, you should decide how much money you want to spend on any tea sets you are considering. After all, since people have been drinking tea for centuries, you are bound to come across a tea set or two that is far older than you are (and very expensive). These make great collector's items, but would you really want to serve tea out of a pot that was sculpted when Victoria was the queen of England? Therefore, you should usually stick with more modern tea sets that were made sometime in the past fifty years or so.

Finding a good quality set may be as simple as checking with local silver shops, a consignment shop, or even with local tea shops. All of these are great options for finding anything from a simple service for four to a large tea set that will accommodate a dozen or more people. Should you have no luck finding what you like locally, then check online auctions and stores that will be able to provide you with some interesting options. In no time, you will find a tea set that is just right for your situation.
