Make your tea drinking experience more enjoyable with our wonderful Scottish Thistle Mug and Teabag Holder. Both items in this set are made from New Bone China, a type of porcelain that is lightweight and has a delicate appearance but is incredibly durable nonetheless. New Bone China also has a beautiful natural glow that lends an air of sophistication to the designs of the mug and tea bag holder. Both designs feature a Scottish thistle motif, which is the national flower of Scotland. This prickly flower is considered emblematic of the bravery and resilience of the Scottish people. According to a legend, the thistle saved the Scots from an ambush by the Norse army during the Battle of Largs. One of the Norsemen stepped on a thistle and cried out in pain, which woke the Scottish warriors up and they managed to defeat the invading Norsemen. The thistle design and the colorful weave patterns around it remind one of medieval illuminated manuscripts, particularly the Book of Kells, which is a religious manuscript that is treasured for its unique illustrations. Thanks to their authentic design and functionality, this mug and tea bag holder are the perfect addition to any kitchen!
