Teacup Thursday #40

My dear friend Sha gave me this wonderful book on tea in the East and it's a lovely different look at enjoying tea. It's filled with wonderful yummy and interesting recipes along with beautiful pictures.

Years ago, I bought this three piece cup that is just great for brewing a single cup of loose tea. The lid becomes a coaster. I have been wanting to find a couple more to share tea with my girls when they come over or my company. I think they're great because everyone can choose their own tea and with the built in strainer, the little cups really brew a nice cup of tea!

Jim and I went to a flea market last Sunday. The first thing I saw when I walked through the door was two of these cups. I was so excited as I have looked on the internet and have not been able to find any more to order.

 The rose pattern is the original. My new cups feature a flying crane and all are a lovely shade of green.

Thanks Miss Spenser for hosting our Teacup Thursday.  If you like tea and teacups, please join the fun on her blog. It's posted on my list of favorites on the right hand side of my blog.

I'm just about done packing up all my Christmas goodies and decorations. One more day. I was given some charming tea cups and tea items for Christmas. I hope next week I am back to normal and can show some of my thoughtful gifts.  Happy Tea Time!
