Tea Stands for Tuesday - 5/15/18

Tuesday is the day I join my friends on Elizabeth's blog.  We talk about many things and everyone is welcome to post as long as there is something drink related in your post.

I've been drinking this Stash tea lately.  I like the flavor and the color is beautiful.  I expect those of you who dye with tea would like too.

Meanwhile,  I recently dropped into a thrift store to look through their selection of  books.   While wandering the aisles, I found these two dinner sized plates.  I thought they were quite interesting and reasonable at $1.19 each.

I don't know this maker.  I looked them up but couldn't find these particular plates.  There was a platter with a similar pattern called "Mediterranean" though, perhaps these plates are part of that set.   Meanwhile the dishes will be used to serve snacks.  Cheese and crackers anyone?


  1. I love stash tea but have not seen here where I am now-I should check their online store. The plates were a great fine and perfect to use. yes I love cheese and crackers (gluten free ones now)
    Happy T day Kathy

  2. A great found and the tea sounds yummie!
    Hugs and happy T-Day

  3. I love Stash tea too but i have never been a big fruit tea drinker.. I like flavors more like Chai... Those plates are great Darla! So pretty and what a steal! I haven't been thrift shopping in a awhile.. i feel a trip coming on!! :) Happy T day! Hugs! deb

  4. wow- what gorgeous plates!! I would not have been able to pass them up either- especially for that price. And I do serve up cheese and crackers quite often:) Happy T day!

  5. Your tea flavours sound delicious and good to drink on warm days.
    Those plates were a bargain find, the decoration looks fabulous.
    Happy T day wishes.

  7. I've never heard of Stash tea, and never had pomegranate, but I would love to find some loose leaf I could use for dyeing (grin).

    Those plates are fabulous. I am truly impressed. They are not just beautiful, but colorful, too. What a great find.

    Thanks for sharing your tea and thrift store plates with us for T this Tuesday, dear Darla.

  8. I'm loving the sound of that tea and I bet the colour is amazing 😁. Your new plates are so beautiful and what a bargain too, I'm looking forward to joining you cheese and crackers too ...lol 😉. Happy T Day! J 😊 x

  9. I love that tea too! Those plates are wonderful!

  10. really beautiful plates! and I suspect the tea is a pretty pink or maroon color....? thanks for sharing...happy T day!

  11. My tea-drinking friends love Stash tea, Darla. Your plates are lovely and I think you got a bargain. Enjoy using them!

    I was curious and searched around. Nothing on I. Godinger & Co., but I'm guessing it was the forerunner of the Godinger Silver and dinnerware company of today. I only found I. Godinger pieces on eBay.

    Since they're eBay links, which disappear fast, I hope you can get to these that I found (then delete them) from this reply. I. Godinger pieces are vintage like your Talavera-style plates.



    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  12. Strawberry pomegranate is a favorite flavor of mine. I have tried many Stash teas and they are all very yummy. And those dinner plates would look lovely on my table. What a great buy!
    Happy Tea Day,

  13. Your plates are a great find, and the price is so small! They are lovely Darla. The tea looks nice too, and even the packaging is pretty - I am sure you will find something to do with that too :))

  14. Those are really pretty plates. I whole assorted collection would make nice dinnerware. I've been drinking strawberry tea myself, my brand is Tazo, but this one does sound good! Hope it was a great T day-got my eyes checked yesterday and with the dilation I couldn't read all night. Hugs-Erika

  15. Oh that tea sounds lovely. I've not come across Stash tea but it sure looks yummy.
    What a bargain those plates! We used to have stuff like that in Italy. Certainly the bottom plate looks like imitation maiolica. Very nice indeed. Yes, please, I'll join you for some cheese and crackers.
    A very belated happy T-Day,
