Yesterday, while making our evening tea (I think I was preparing Harney & Sons Florence), I jokingly told Alex that one of my life goals was to find the perfect tea set.
If you have interests like mine, it’s terribly hard finding the perfect anything. I’m so often in search of the shiny, black, faux-Edwardian version of practically everything… and I usually don’t find much that fits the description.
A couple of years ago I came upon an image that threw me for a loop. It was perfect. Black, Edwardian-inspired, and the work of an artist. However, it was not for sale, and probably not even functioning. Really disappointing.
You can probably see why I fell in love.

Since coming upon this image I’ve been searching for a lookalike. Or at the very least a cool black tea set. This post is dedicated to my findings. None work for me personally, but many I’ve come across may work for any fellow darkly-inclined (and tea-loving) folk.
