Being a noob, I needed the basics - a gongfu set. To that, have just added a smaller travel set for work, a porcelain teapot, and three tea bowls. Spread out over 11 months, that doesn't seem like too much. Now TEA yes, that has grown exponentially!
Though I'll admit, now that I've narrowed down preferences, the purchases have slowed considerably, and focus just on those.... with the odd weirdos thrown in.
No gongfu tonight - am traveling, so just had Bigelow sleepy-time... which is working fabulously!
