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