AN OUTPOURING OF LOVE

On the packaging of our Newby English Breakfast Tea you will find a remarkable bloodstone teapot, which is one of the highlights of The Chitra Collection.

This unusual bloodstone teapot is beautifully decorated with Rococo-style gold openwork, representing foliage, scrolls and shell patterns. Around the teapot the imagery of the gold-mounted border tells a story of the pursuit of love; a hunting excursion and two lovers on a boating trip in a vessel resembling a gondola.

On the lid of the teapot a seated Cupid forms the finial, aiming his bow and arrow at the lovebirds on the tip of the spout. Cupid’s presence celebrates the love that he has orchestrated and reminds us that tea brings people together.
