At home, where I have more selection, I generally go for some variety in the pot or gaiwan as well as the cup, although I have a few well-established pairings (morning sencha in the leaf kyusu, usually with one of two 'rock'-like yunomis).

At work, I have a more limited selection, but with yunomis and hagis that are as nice to use as the ones I have now, it's no hardship to drink from the same cup most or all of the time.

Today, there was no morning sencha, but silver dragon white tea was enjoyed brewed in a kyusu, and afternoon puerh was brewed in the kamjove and is still going strong several hours and a liter or so later.

I only have one pot, but I have quite a collection of tea cups that I love to use-- and it's even larger now that I'm home for the summer and have access to all of them! :D

Some lovely Yunnan black tea upon waking up this afternoon (I was literally up until sunrise talking to one of my best friends; she's in Japan currently so there's a 13-hour time difference :shock: ). Currently heating water for some rose sencha.
