‘Twinkle, twinkle, little bat!
How I wonder What you’re at!’
Two things that I’ve always felt go hand in hand are books and tea. For me, there’s nothing better than losing an afternoon curled up with a good book and a mug of Yorkshire’s finest and so anything that can combine the two is definitely up my street. Whittard’s Alice In Wonderland range which features John Tenniel’s iconic illustrations has been around for a little while but they’ve recently added some new designs as well as an amazing teapot which depicts the Mad Hatter’s tea party in all its crazed glory.
Despite trying my hardest, the new mug designs and teapot were just too pretty not to add to my ‘Alice’ collection (although it has raised the question ‘how many mugs is too many mugs?’) but I’m now fully equipped should any unexpected visitors drop by in need of a mad tea party of their own…
‘Up above the world you fly,
Like a tea-tray in the sky.
