Purchases at TranquiliTea

It's impossible to step inside TranquiliTea without making a purchase.  Mary Ann was the pleasant and helpful sales assistant while I was shopping.

The shop [located in Plymouth, MI] carries a large selection of teas from Harney & Sons as well as The Republic of Tea - including their Downton Abbey line.

My shopping bag was full of purchases.

Will & Kate Jeweled Silver Plated Teaspoons

A Queen Silhouette Cookie Cutter

~ Tea-themed Note Cards by Lissom Design ~

~ Tea-themed Christmas Gift Tags by Carol's Rose Garden ~

~ Tea-themed Christmas Paper Napkins ~

And three tins of The Republic of Tea's Downton Abbey Teas:  Downton Christmas Tea, black tea with mulling spices; Lady Cora's Evening Tea, caffeine-free blend of chamomile and lemon balm; and Mrs. Patmore's Pudding Tea, black tea with caramel and vanilla.

I'm sipping the Christmas Teas as I type this post.  When I lifted the lid a wonderful orange, citrusy aroma wafted out of the container. The citrus taste is not overpowering, but delightfully subtle and mild.

In case you're wondering, the Christmas teacup doesn't have a pattern name.  The manufacturer's trademark is Bluebird, and it's made in Canada.

Today I'm joining Antiques and Teacups for Tuesday Cuppa Tea


  1. What a wonderful place! I would have come out loaded as well! Love your seasonal teacup. Lots of potteries made that pattern...I just love it!

  2. The gift tags are adorable, Phyllis, and what a beautiful display of teas! I would have loved shopping there too.

  3. What fun you must have had! I love those spoons- and would have had to get some of those cute napkins, too.

  4. I don't think I could have stopped in there without QUITE A FEW purchases. Wonderful things! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Lots of fun shopping for you! Downtown Abby tea sounds wonderful with your sweet teacup! Wishing you a blessed Christmas season!

  6. What a fun shopping report! Those new teaspoons are lovely, as is the stationery, and the cookie cutter, and the napkins, and ... well, everything! Especially like the spoons, though, as I've never before seen any with a) teapots on the handle and b) jewels. Charming! Thanks for the review on the Downton Abbey Christmas tea, too. That's on my to-try list for this Christmas season!

  7. Didn't you find some treasures here! I like the holiday napkins and the Queen cookie cutter! What a fun shop.
