cups - (Hagi would win by a long shot, though lots of TA pieces as well ... + others
canisters - lots of canisters of all kinds
pots
tea ...

Heh, it is all about the tea, right? Well, it still is, but I just do not have tons of teas on hand anymore. My tea selections are very deliberate and thought out. Yet I do try a lot of teas during the year ... as a rule.

Great teas the last few days ... but I won't bore you with details except today. Began with Guricha from Xell with the Mrs.

Lousy photo ... but anyway ... all the pots are used pretty regularly. I store all open Japanese teas here ... but in only a handful of canisters (the smallest ones) on the bottom shelf. All other teas are stored elsewhere. I am ready to store a lot of teas!!! This is only Japanese canisters and pots. There are also Chinese, Korean and even some Western.

Where are the cups? :mrgreen:
