Hi Vic,
Got mine from http://www.yunnansourcing.com/store/
I'm looking for other pieces of the same color&look.
Might as well turn this into a set.

Thanks everyone!

Wow, nonc_ron I forgot about that! I was wondering why
JAS e Tea wasn't carrying the green too. I had a similar one
from Tea Spring, but not nearly as nice or as vibrant. Ended
up giving it to DotK when she broke part of hers. In the meantime
I kinda been wanting it still. But I'm really happy with the white.
And these two small cups match in style with my white crackle.
:) I would love to see more pieces. :)

I got an email from Adagio Tea saying this tea pot was back in stock.
A nice clean look and the price is only $9.00

Have you used it to brew tea?

I was planing on brewing my tea in my usual no fuss no muse way.
(My cast iron sauce pot)
And this pot as a pitcher to bring the tea to the table and fill the cups.
(Only when I have company) :D

On Friday, I took advantage of o-cha.com's sincha sale and while I was shopping I ordered this sweet little cup: http://www.o-cha.com/Arita-yaki-Teacup-16506.html. My order arrived yesterday (EMS from Japan is super fast!!!).

The cup is a delight...it is my favorite shape, nice "lip feel", lovely crackle glaze, colors are not as vivid as the picture shows on my monitor (but I like the color it is better anyway). It is already a favorite!

I may need to order another as a spare!

P.S. I've not written here in a while, but I always peep in on this topic and so appreciate seeing everyone's wares!! Thanks! D.

Nice Dreamer!! That's a sweet looking cup, yeah love that shape.
Congrats!

nonc_ron - I have brewed in the Adagio pot quite a bit, yes. Definitely my "go to" English pot for a larger batch. Sometimes I like to brew a large pot of tea and go read by the fireplace, in that case I use the infuser basket and pour into my small cup a bit at a time. I have also used it with the leaves loose inside and then pour out using the basket as a strainer. Your way would work too. It really is a neat design with the subtle squareness to the edges.

Thought I would post a few pictures of my teaware - aside from my TC TA SO cup these comprise the entirety of my collection. The rather strange kyusu-ish teapot was found at Salvation army for $2.00, while the cups were purchased at World Market for $0.99 apiece. Grand total of $4.00, not bad at all, seeing as how it's all I have. There is a gaiwan and serving pitcher en route from Jas-eTea, which I'm looking forward to as well, hoping to round out my little collection. Teaware is expensive, and I want too much, so i'm staying small.

Oh well!

Oh..and if anyone knows what the writing on the teapot says...do tell. That's the only markings it posseses.

Very nice ladybean. White is very classic and elegant.
No one would ever guess where those came from!
