Cuppa Tea?

Everyone with taste knows tea is good food. It's full of delicious particles and imperialist history. It also enjoys a long history with everyone's favorite Time Lord.
True tea is only from the leaves of Camellia sinensis.

"But tea is so hot that it scalds my hand!" Well then you should drink it out of a cup and brew it in a tea pot you moron.
There are lots of awesome tea pots out there. I just bought a Japanese cast iron beauty from my favorite tea website which is going out of business. If you hurry you can still catch the 50% sale on the limited stuff they have left. Single tear.
You can also support handmade over on Etsy. Do it!
There is this cool weirdness which makes us all a little uncomfortable but is also awesome. Reshapestudio seems to have a bit of an oral fixation and also tons of beautiful stuff.
There are some crazy awesome things going on over at Teapot88. Some of the curves over there are downright pornographic.

This little beauty and many others comes from NY's drgceramics.
If you like to be constantly terrified that your treasured handmade ceramics are tumbling to their doom then this is the cutie for you from candyaustinceramics. They have lots of stuff that isn't blood pressure raising and is super neat. Just take a deep breath. It's going to be ok.
Speaking of blood pressure! These handpainted beauties come from HeartMarks.
What? All right these are pretty cute patspottery.

Now please everyone as you run to the kitchen remember loose leaf. Bags are for tea baggers.

  3. Amazing tea pots! Thank you so much for sharing. I absolutely love the last one.

  4. The third one makes me want to break it apart and eat it, it looks so much like chocolate!
    Tea is my main drink. Thanks for this post.

  5. Right! I love that brown clay. Maybe you've just figured out why.
    Nom nom nom.

  6. Great post! I love the humor in your blog - I am now a follower. Oh, and thanks for including my mouth tea set - oral fixation indeed...
