There are a ton. I just got a couple plain white 5oz ones (haven't measured - seems on the big side to me) from teality.com - ~ $12.
This site has a nice set - white with 3 small cups:
They have the same one w/ green print on it as well. It doesn't say what size, though.
Here's another set, with a little cup and a sniffing cup:
If you're looking for a print one, do a web search (you could try Jing's Tea Shop, Yunnan Sourcing, LLC on Ebay, or Teaspring (all located in China), houdeasianart.com, imperialtea.com, or a ton of other places in the US.
If you're brewing gong fu style, you probably want one that's smaller than you'd think if you're making tea for yourself - otherwise you'll waste a lot of leaf. I didn't think 5 oz would be that horribly big, but it is. Even the 4oz or so one I have is kind of overkill. I think a 2-3 oz one would probably be good for me (if anyone knows where to get a small, plain white one, for less than $18 or so, let me know).
