Or, a lot of people are reading TeaChat. :)

Wow Victoria, I was just thinking that. TC seems to open up a lot of doors, otherwise relatively unknown, for those who peruse this forum.

Good choice! Since these are hand-made from natural materials they can vary a lot, but this one looks especially good. Which vendor?


Believe it or not, this one actually comes from Teavana, one of the few things in their store I would actually consider buying.

I guess I'll have to check them out. I didn't even know they carried these.

It looks rough, but I'm guessing that it feels soft to the hand. Gorgeous.

It does feel smooth and textured, very nice. It has no rough edges although it looks like it does. her works are truly fantastic!

This cup just came in the mail today. Supposedly, it's old. I have no idea if it really is, but it has certainly seen a fair amount of use. The mark on the bottom is too stylized for me to even try to decipher; if anyone has any ideas as to what it might say, please let me know! :)

And a bonus picture of celadon cups from Stéphane at Tea Masters. I bought these a while ago and have really enjoyed using them.

The color of all of the cups is greener in real life, but this was as close as I could get it!
