Thank you for popping-in to Cup & Crown



I created Cup & Crown to share my interests with others as I am never more in my element (or shall I say, I never feel more British) than when I have the opportunity to host a lavish Afternoon Tea, introduce someone to a tea they've never before tried, or recommend a favorite series from my personal watch lists. I'm especially happy when those things I recommend become new favorites that those friends now suggest to others.


So if you are looking tmutually and virtually indulge in your love of the UK, visit me often here at Cup & Crown.


I'll put the kettle on!

I'm Nancy: tea enthusiast and long-time Anglophile. I have always been drawn to Britain - its history, its royal lineage, and especially its custom of enjoying tea. I can't pass a tea shop or a tea website without even the slightest look-see to sample new teas or ogle the pretty accessories. I have spent many hours engrossed in British period dramas, documentaries, and travel shows, sampling dishes from English cookbooks, all the while stockpiling a mental cache of British trivia and colloquialisms. Because until I can actually travel the UK in its entirety, stopping at all the quaint tea rooms along the way, these things will have to do!
