Voted for Gong fu cup, but it could almost defy classification. A Korean Shino cup made by Seong Il, that clocks in at about 1.5 to 2 ounces in size. Lets see if I can find a photo.


Yes:

I was using one of these guys. I was actually using the one that is turned upside down, that has a lot more character as the shino bubbled/ freckled quite a bit leaving a good number of tiny holes in the glaze of this cup.

Today I'll use my office cup since I'm at work.

I have no way of uploading a pic of my own from here but this is what it looks like:

I bought it because its a)big, b) sturdy; heavy and difficult to knock over and c) dishwasher safe. Only drawback is that it retains heat a little too well, it takes ages for the tea to cool...

(~500ml)

Alishan in a gaiwan. Black tea or something-spiced-chai in a mug (brewed in teapot). Before heading to work: Keys? Check. Pants? Check. Glass jar with screw-on lid containing tea leaves/ herbs + hot water? Check.
