I have been window shopping. I love these, but can’t justify the prices. Do you have any that haunt you like these do me?
Remember when Crate and Barrel had those limited edition teapots that came out once every month to celebrate their 50th anniversary? I wanted one – specifically the one for December. So expensive, but I loved the design! Didn’t matter, though, they were gone in a flash – I never had a chance! Here’s a pic:
All three of those are REALLY pretty Marzipan!
I drool over Tokoname yaki ware kyusu on ebay periodically.
Wow, this one is so gorgeous!
I love all of the textured ones!
Cameron B. It is interesting you liked that one. I almost bought that months ago. I ordered a totally different pot and the potter produced that instead. I ended up buying something different from the same seller. I almost wish I had bought that but it did not look symmetrical in the photos. I am having second thoughts.
Cameron B., that one caught my eye too! Trying to not be so acquisitive lately, though.
So cute! Although it sounds really small… I wish they had volume measurements. :P
Yes, volume measurements are super necessary. Sucks that they don’t list them.
Marzipan, I know! I love it with the happy gold circles. And the fair cup is so adorable. :)
Stephanie, the dimensions on it are super deceptive too, because I’m sure that includes the spout and the super tall handle. I don’t know what volume is usually used for gong fu brewing…
I prefer an 8oz gongfu pot but I know they make some a lot larger and smaller than that.
I like 4-5 oz. because with multiple resteeps you will feel like water ballon ready to explode any sec haha
That is the most adorable set ever! More than I’d pay, but not totally unreasonable. I’d ask for it as a gift. Just by eyeballing I’m gonna guess 5-6 ounces. I prefer 4 though :P
I’ve been longingly looking at some very nicely designed ceramic gaiwans lately.
I find myself browsing some of the cannisters and tea cups here sometimes. I already have two of the cannisters.
The Tea Centre in Courtenay BC has some of those ceramic travel thermoses. Maybe not exact, but so close! They looked really nice, and were fairly heavy-duty, but I’d be scared of breaking one.
I shouldn’t have peeked. Now I want this.
yyz I wanna buy EVERYTHING in there. But I run out of space already. I need a bigger house with my pers. tearoom. And also I need plant room because I got those too. A lot
Oh, I like this post… Love your selection Marzipan!! I say…Indulge??
I’ve been obsessed with this Yixing pot for several months now… But I can’t justify buying it cause:
1) it’s expensive
2) I have way too much teaware, it’s getting ridiculous
3) i broke 4 yixing pots this year
But…but…it’s so darn cute!!
Haha! no but thanks for your concern…I have “restocked” them all now since last january. I’m expecting two this week. TO BE HANDLED WITH CARE!!!
MzPriss, want to buy it??? BTW, turquoise it totally in my top 3 favourite colours, forgot to answer that this morning :-)
I adore it – but I have 3 yixings that I never hardly use already because I never have any time for gong-fuy and when I do, I generally use a gaiwan – but that is cute cute cute
TheTeaFairy, I had to get this baby today
Btw they got new Yixing
Lol, MzPriss, I hear ya!!
Boychik: It’s so pretty and so affordable, and so tiny just the way you like them :-)
Yep, it’s simple but most important it’s tiny. I think I would like 100 ml even more
Look at this one
It’s polished with rocks.
Lovely pot! I love clay stuff, so very nice. The price is the only thing holding me back right now!!
I completely lust after Franz teaware. A super generous friend with a love for great art gifted me with the dragonfly teapot several years ago. I haunt ebay every so often in hope… When I win the lottery – Franz teapots, chocolate, tea and travel. :)
Marzipan, those are gorgeous!!!
Marzipan – THAT PINK GAIWAN!!!!!!! You need to treat yourself – that is BEAUTIFUL
Lol…the Mandala pink one was kind of more affordable. So sad you missed that one.
And you know – it really was stupid of me – I did MANY Mandala orders and almost put it in my cart and didn’t do it and then when I decided to, it was gone. It’s OK though. I got a cute red one at Zhi. And um, I might have some teapots/cups/mugs coming
They come in different colors.
I actually gave in and got one of those. I think I found mine on Ebay though. It is gorgeous I use it every so often. :)
I keep looking at those. I’ve looked at 6 or 7 different colors. I’m afraid I would it break it – but so so pretty and outrageous
Those tea cups always appear when I’m looking for teacups on ebay. Arrgg, been wanting one for well over a year. Bleh, I’m gonna wishlist it on amazon and hope a family member buys it for me.
This. Every time it sells out, I think that’ll be the last of it, but then Teavivre restocks.
