Blossoms and Leaves

Flowers and tea. Both are grown from the earth. Both have a rich, natural aroma. They can lift your spirits, or help you relax from a tiring day. And now, the beauty of each comes together in this blossoming tea set.

Stacked together, the parts of Beijing designer Shen Di's porcelain set appear to bloom, forming a stylized rosebud. But pluck them from the stack, and each petal blossoms with multipurpose functionality: the bottom piece becomes a plate; the large bowl holds fresh fruit or chocolates; and the two small cups are perfect for a spot of tea. The top layer has a tea strainer, and a small scoop for measuring loose leaf tea. All of these rosy-hued pieces are paired with a small, matching teapot that's perfect for two friends to share. Made in China.

Comments about ROSE TEAPOT SET:

I ordered this for my mother who lives on the mainland (I do not.) so I was pretty worried that it would be broken by the time, she got it. But I was thrilled to order it for her because she's just...what everyone pictures a mom to be: ADDICTED TO FLOWERS, PURPLE AND TEA! (lol!) So she got it in all the correct pieces. And she loved it. She was so excited b/c it was so different that she didn't want to use it. I refrained from commenting on it b/c I wanted to see it in person first. It is pretty sturdy but I wouldn't be too liberal with it. Most of the items on this website are craft pieces. With all craft pieces...its durable but lets be reasonable with it. You wouldn't make mac & cheese in the microwave with it. Its meant to be a gift so its small and personal. I do wish that there were other pieces that would go with it, like a maybe a desert plate and tray. or even if there were other colors/flowers available. Either way, I love this and she did also. I usually never know what to get for her but its the perfect mom gift.

Comments about ROSE TEAPOT SET:

Neat concept.

Service and delivery comments:

The bottom nesting cup, the biggest one, was broken in several pieces when she unwrapped and opened it Christmas morning. She still likes it, but does not have the largest cup and can not form the full nesting rose. :-(

      Excellent for teatime for 2! Teapot has holes before spout so large tea leaves don't go out into teacups. Got this for mother's day and I think it's an excellent gift.

      Tea by any other name would taste as delicious. But a teapot that looks like a rose is extra sweet! Would you love to enjoy tea for two with this unique set?

      We're glad you like the Rose Teapot Set, Christine! To answer your question, the set was designed by Bejing-based designer Shen Di and is made in China. The Rose Teapot Set has won design awards all over the world and is celebrated for its fusion of Eastern and Western styles. Uncommon high design is definitely our cup of tea!

      Love the stylized nesting bowls/cups! I think the price is worth it for a tea set for two that could be used for other things as well.Glad to hear it's lead free, esp since it's Made in China. However, such a source makes sense in this case, as the Uncommon Goods rep stated that the designer lives in China.

      I can appreciate the "rose" concept when the tea set (made in China and far too expensive -- two BIG negatives) is together but when it is separated for use, the bread platter looks like a bedpan. Some of the other individual pieces are somewhat vulgar looking as well. Not too artistic!

      First I am wary now of things from China. Besides that I don't know if this whole thing would work. I drink tea but will the strainer hold onto the edge of the cup or pot till done steeping and what sizes are all these. they look small to me. I would not buy it.

      I would have to agree that this seems both expensive and overly complicated. I understand the design choices are supposed to be rose-like, but I don't find any of them appealing. Also none of the pieces look like they would be pleasant to drink out of and since that is the whole point of tea I feel like the functionality just isn't there.

      Tea lovers appreciate the ceremony of making and serving tea and the component aspect of this adds to the process but in a positive way. Lovely colors and lovely shapes. Considering what teapots sell for in tea shops, this is a reasonable price - but could be made by an American artisan.
