Yes, I know what you're thinking: "Sirrah, 'tis absurd. A cup of the English variety, containing what looks suspiciously like sencha? And a teaspoon, presumably for stirring said brew? We think not. 'Tis absurd, impossible, and surely illegal. And dude, take a photography course already."
Good points. But I have my reasons for this setup.
The cup is an heirloom of indeterminate age, and I kind of like its blue-white scheme. On the bottom it says "Made in Japan", so the sencha thing is not entirely unjustified to my confused mind. Also, I have no black tea right now. And also, the saucer and cup have matching golden rims, which is never wrong.
The silver teaspoon (it is strictly speaking a c*ffee spoon) is of a locally popular design that was for many decades manufactured by a branch of my family.
I rest my case.
