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.

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!
