Chinese Tea Cup




We went to Hon Tai Supermarket last weekend and I saw this lovely tea cup! It is a set of three parts, the cup itself, an infuser and a lid. The infuser holds the tea leaves while it infuses the hot water.


I will be able to try the dried tea leaves that my chinese friends have given me.... with style...hehe.

That's a gorgeous cup. Such beautiful things remind me to slow down and enjoy. You know, I never hear people say they will have a quick cup of tea--only a quick cup of coffee.....

Maybe because tea is meant to be taken slowly. Enjoyed and savored every sip... just like a good chocolate!

thanks for dropping by Sandy!

Lovely Chinese tea cup :) I hope you'll enjoy the Chinese tea! They're good for after an oily meal, helps to get rid of the queasy feeling.

Thanks for the tip Napaboaniya! I will remember that.

thanks for dropping by!

Awwww.... don't be sad coz you'll find one for yourself. There's usually some on sale in chinese supermarkets and believe me, you won't be able to make up your mind on which one to choose. There are so many designs and they were all gorgeous! If i have only brought my camera... next time. :)

have a happy week!

Your post reminds me of a classic nursery song... I'm a little tea cup short and stout...

But your teacup looks neither short nor stout. :-)

You will now have your own tea ceremony to enjoy.

Indeed! My teacup is neither short nor stout. It is a different breed...hehe.

I had good teas from the tea cup. I have one at home and one at work now.

thanks for visiting Juleste!
