Tea Time

Green, Black, Chai, Roibois, Peppermint...  what tea do you prefer?
Whatever i'm drinking - I want it served in one of these...

"Trying to mix an element of craft with industrially manufactured products, doing so by designing various tea sets with the aim of combining old and new. There is no doubt that collectables and old things add so much to our lives, from soothing our fragile psyches after a less than wonderful day to reminding us about the beauty in this world"
Press release from the designer Christine Misiak

Vintage silver tea sets, powder coated in beautiful colours (and most importantly - black).
I love the idea of something so classic being given new life.

Christine currently has no website but her teapots can be viewed on her flickr here
