Not only a stunning design, but also an incredibly practical teapot and cup for one person. Two of Yvonne Ellen's trademark birds - a bright as you please pink flamingo and a gold coloured cockatoo sporting an orange plume - combine on this tea for one set.
Gold polka dots, on the white background and another Ellen signature, the bumblebee on the saucer rim, make taking tea for one an absolute delight. A true British success story, Yvonne Ellen homeware was founded in 2012, but has quickly established a reputation for quirkily designed, hand crafted pieces which appear 'up cycled'. A Londoner, she has a passion for beautiful vintage crockery.
Many items feature her 'continuity' designs: an animal design made complete when main and side plates are arranged in a certain way, but which work individually too. All products are designed in Britain.

Each and every morning, my favourite cup of tea would be English Breakfast. It’s strong, it’s coloury, it’s got a wonderful nutty flavour that I really do enjoy, and it takes the milk well.William Manning, Senior Tea Taster
In the UK Head Office we taste over 500 cups of tea every day, to search for the best quality teas available from around the world.Dominic Marriot, Tea Taster
Later on in the afternoon I might try something like a Darjeeling that has the muscatel flavour, or maybe even a high-grown Ceylon, but definitely my favourite brew, and the one that I drink the most of, is English Breakfast.William Manning , Senior Tea Taster
