Cup & Saucer Set Buyer’s Guide
Rediscover the style and taste difference of your favourite beverage from a glass or porcelain cup. This is an experience which assaults all the senses and is a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds. Our buyer’s guide sorts out the best from the rest and will help you source the perfect cup & saucer set for your favourite beverage.
Pieces in the set
Most sets are sold as solo, duo or in quantities of six, some of the larger cup and saucer sets will also have teaspoons that match and sometimes an elegant display stand. There may be a range from which you buy further additions such as side plates, sugar bowls and creamers.
The traditional design is always a winner, but if you want something more contemporary then choose a narrower, deeper cup with perhaps a square saucer.
Your tea or coffee drink will be very important to you so if a perfectly proportioned espresso is your morning starter fuel or nothing but a bucket of tea will do then make sure your choice is the right size for your essential brew. The product description should tell you how much each cup can hold.
For daily toughness, glass has no equal and will withstand both the freezer and the microwave as well. Take care with fine bone china and porcelain and wash each item individually in a sink of hot water. Delicate designs will be more prone to breakages during use and it is also worth checking how well the item is packaged before despatch from the seller.
A well-chosen cup and saucer set can breathe new life into that all-important tea or coffee. For all-round durability and style, the Malacasa 12-Piece set is our clear frontrunner.
