We know you’re probably thinking of cookies and cakes, but we’re talking about a few quirky products to make teatime much more fun! Jeet Dalvi picks his favourites
A daily tradition in most countries across the world, albeit in different forms, teatime is everything from a social ritual to a soothing solitary session for when you need a little break. From pretty cups and saucers to pastry plates, the accessories have been getting prettier and quirkier with every passing year, and we’ve got a list of must-haves for every tea lover that we just can’t do without. Take a look at what you should add to your collection.
Two in one
