A Victorian China Tea Service
Tea became the nation's beverage during Queen Victoria's reign. Lower taxes on tea and the expansion of plantations in India (the plant had originated in China) meant there was more affordable tea than ever before, making it accessible to more levels of society.

8 x Tea cups

8 x Tea plates
2 x Cake plates
( Silver plated tea pot and cake slice are for photography purposes only, but we do have several available if needed )
