dang me and my lil brambly hedge teaset look pretty shabby against all you folks with pot collections!!!!!

I would get a nice iron or yixing pot but I just can't deal with the terrible smallness!!!!!!! I need a good 20+ ounces of tea each morning

I recognize that panda faircup holder! Is that painted yixing pot you have in the back from funalliance? How do you like it?

Sal, I think I have one of those yixing pots, too. The one right in front of the kyusu; did you get it from Imperial Tea Court?

Space-

The fukugata kyusu is indeed the fine one that you recommended. The 4 yixing pots in front of the 2 kyusu pots, however, are all from Teapot Gallery on ebay.

Scruff-

You have a great eye! The tiny shan shui pot is indeed from Funalliance. It holds a whopping 45 ml and I have yet to actually use it!

The panda bear strainer and its stand are enormously cute but I don't actually use them. The strainer drips through a hole in the stand right onto the counter or whatever is underneath and I have other strainers I like as much or more that are plain metal.

aqueous-

I agree. Sometimes great swilling gulps are the only thing that satisfies!

Oh I'm just lazy as all hell....I make a big pot and that way I just have to get up and refill my cup a few times. I don't have the patence to brew then drink, brew, then drink, brew, then drink

whenever i run out of dishes too do while I'm brewing tea I get all antsy and just stand there watching the leaves...I'm not a very patient person!

Found my digital camera after the move!

My "silver" set

Cutest teapot ever
Image

Found this whole set for one dollar!

The handle is missing on that set, any ideas on a cheap replacement?

And my "heirloom" cups

I'm missing one cup from the set, it was broken before I received them.


I also have an Adagio mug and glass teapot, so use your imaginaton.

Fencer,

You might want to go to a craft store and check out their selection of purse handles. For some reason, a lot of women seem to want to make their own purses these days so places like Hobby Lobby and JoAnn Fabrics have a surprisingly large selection. I'm sure you could find something adaptable there.

Here is my dragon teapot

Yixing? I don't know. It's unglazed. I got it in Chinatown in NYC.

Nah, I got them from Artistic Nippon, and for a great price. Both pieces and shipping/insurance from Japan for just under $200. I paid more like $250 for my other two pieces from Rishi. Nothing against Rishi, I think I just saved money by purchasing from a guy who's in Japan.

NICE!

I too prefer the Japanese stuff.

How do you like the chatsubo? My inlaws almost bought me one, but i said no thanks. Should I have said yes?
