Teatime Puzzle

The Teatime Puzzle is a delightful as it looks.  I am not a big flavour tea drinker but some of these are decorated to be so attractive that a puzzler just might crave tea.

While putting this puzzle together, you may find some of the 'fine' text difficult to read so have your magnify glass handy.

Teatime Puzzle Assembly

I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards.

The border was fairly doable. I thought it best to start with the least of colors which was quite outstanding and that was little tippets of images and text.

I started with the large TEATIME puzzle text and the colored smaller text in and around the board. The striped teacups were outstanding enough and the blue/white teapot. Then I assembled the colored flowers, jar of honey and lemons. The rest of the pieces (about 200 pieces) were not difficult as there was enough details to easily find the correct areas.

The following shares some close up images of the tea cups and text. The poster included (in images below) was quite handy to read the smaller text. Some of the lighter text was tricky to read on the puzzle.
