Tea Sets For Your 'Bridgerton'-Inspired Tea Parties
We’ve rounded up beautiful tea sets to accompany us on quiet, lovely afternoons over tea and biscuits
It’s official: Bridgerton is Netflix’s most-watched series, reaching over in its first four weeks. The adaptation of Julia Quinn’s romance novels has all of us swooning over the Duke of Hastings, rooting for the show’s Bridgertons (especially the best of them all—Eloise, of course), and fawning over beautiful sets, costumes, and elaborate wigs.
Bridgerton has also inspired us to throw more tea parties, and had a lot of us lusting after fancy tea sets, as evidenced by the uptick in Google searches for “tea,” “afternoon tea at home,” “tea sets vintage,” and “victorian tea sets” all throughout January.
Here, we round up several beautiful tea sets to accompany us on quiet, lovely afternoons in-between work or after, having thoughtful conversations with our loved ones—but don’t forget tea etiquette if you’re going to make a day out of it!

Tea first, always.
Don't pour the milk in before the tea; the hot liquid should go in first before the cold—that is, milk.
Eat food in the proper order.
Start with the savory food, then move onto the sweet.
Remember to stir the tea with a teaspoon up and down, about two to three times silently. Set the teaspoon on the right hand side of the saucer.
Don't hold your pinky out.
That's a common mistake—it's usually seen as pretentious. When you hold your cup, keep the saucer on the table, and pinch your index finger and thumb between the tea cup's handle, allowing your middle finger to support it.
Still, don't forget to relax and enjoy.
Tea, after all, is meant to be a calming, soothing experience.
