Tetsubin Iron Teacups

by karmaplace » May 3rd 10 7:02 pm

Hello, everyone! I've just purchased an Iwachu tetsubin teapot, but I'm interested in purchasing matching cups sometime in the near future. I work at a mall with a Teavana, and when I wandered in there the other day I found a lone purple and gold iron teacup that perfectly matched my pot, but it was the last this particular store had and they no longer have them online either.

It wouldn't be much of a dilemma except that my teapot looks like this: http://www.sensationalteas.com/LGTumehoushu.html

Now, Teavana does sell gold teacups (they match pretty well) and purple teacups (it's the wrong shade of purple however), but if anyone knows of any other websites or vendors that have a large selection of cast iron teacups or pieces, please share. In my own searching, I've managed to find a few sites that sell cups, but I've yet to find any outside of Teavana that match the colors well. Thank you!
