Tea Service

High Teas wouldn't be high teas without the key element - tea - and at Your Cup of Tea Vintage Hire we have all you need to brew and serve your tea. Whether you have a hankering for a breakfast tea, something flavoured or something other than black, we have the vessels to help you with steeping the tea leaves and then serving the resulting infusion.

 

Nothing else quite has the elegance and luxury of brewing your tea in a vintage English china teapot, and serving it in a matching teacup and saucer, with a cake plate for your sugar fix!

Our collection includes vintage teacup trios, duos, teapots, milk jugs and creamers, vintage teaspoons and sugar bowls for hire. Hire only what you need or top up what you already have, or look at our High Tea Packages for a combination of tea and food service items.

Tea Strainers

One of the best things about a high tea is quality tea made from steeping the tea leaves - no teabags here please! With no bag, you will need a tea strainer to catch those stray tea leaves and stop them from landing in your beautiful teacup. We have a range of vintage tea strainers to complete your high tea experience.

Tea Trolley

One of our vintage tea trolleys is exactly what your space needs to complete the high tea look. Use it as a buffet, a drinks bar, or as a prop for your styling - it is a great addition to any high tea event. One is brass with mirrored shelves, while the other is an off-white wooden trolley.  Pick ups need to ensure the trolley will fit within the confines of their vehicle.

$50.00 (brass trolley)
$30.00 (wooden trolley)
